PEXA now supports the electronic lodgement of Leases in South Australia. A Lease enables the representatives of the Lessor and the Lessee to prepare, sign and lodge a Lease or Underlease over Whole or Part of the land in a title.
A Lease or Underlease may be lodged by the Proprietor on Title or by the lessee of a Lease or Underlease. In the case where a Transfer is involved, then the Incoming Proprietor may lodge a Lease.
A Lease may be lodged in the following scenarios:
Supporting document may be required when lodging a Lease in SA. If there is a mortgage or encumbrance over the lease or land, then a Consent from the mortgagee or encumbrancee may need to be attached. To determine if supporting documents are required, please refer to the 'Jessups Lands Title Office Forms and Practice' guide.
In the state of South Australia, when the Proprietor on Title (who is remaining on title) has a current name that is different from the name that is registered on title, then an ‘Application to Note Change of Name’ must be lodged in paper through Land Services SA to update the Register before the following Document Types can be lodged electronically:
For more information, please visit the Land Services SA website on how to lodge an ‘Application to Note Change of Name’.
These instructions assume you're creating a new Workspace in PEXA. If you've accepted an invitation to the Workspace, then skip to Step 3.
Note: If you represent both parties, you must add the other role in Workspace Settings, then for each party, continue with the steps relevant for your role.
Repeat this step for all lessors whom you represent.
Note: All lessors in the applicable Lease / Underlease must be represented.
Now it's time to represent the lessee in the role of To deal with an Interest.
If you don't represent the lessee, then invite the party's representative into the Workspace in the role of To deal with an Interest.
If you represent the lessee then ensure you're in the role of To deal with an Interest. If you're in another Workspace role, then switch roles now to add the lessee in to the Workspace.
