Priority Notices: Registering an Incoming Mortgagee

Hi QLD Community,


Recent feedback from DNRME has highlighted that some Priority Notices are preventing automatic registration on following documents due to the incorrect names being entered for the incoming parties.

For example, there has been instances where Subscribers are entering an incoming mortgagee on a Priority Notice as ‘CBA – Commonwealth Bank of Australia’.  However the incoming mortgagee on the Mortgage, has the legal name of “Commonwealth Bank of Australia”.

When this occurs, a warning is returned to the Subscriber of the incoming document and all of the documents in the workspace are flagged for manual examination so Registry staff can investigate the discrepancy.

By ensuring that the details on the Priority Notice reflect the correct legal entities, you can prevent these delays and could even prevent a requisition that would slow down the registration process.
