The recent bushfires have had a devastating impact on many South Australians. As part of State Government Relief, the Office of the Registrar-General in conjunction with Land Services SA have introduced a bushfire relief program for eligible property owners.
This relief program will provide affected property owners with:
Land Services SA will provide Register Searches at no cost to bushfire affected property owners. Register Searches are required when submitting building or development approval applications and may be relevant when transferring or refinancing a property.
The Registrar-General will waive the Transaction and Registration Fees on transfers* and other related dealings for bushfire affected property owners.
*This relief program provides full Registration Fee relief up to a property value of $1 million (i.e. a cap of $8,510.50). Relief for properties valued over $1 million will be capped at $8,510.50, with the balance of Registration fee payable.
A property owner, affected by bushfires in the Local Government Areas of Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Mount Barker, Murray Bridge, Mid-Murray, Yorke Peninsula and Kingston District, are likely to be eligible for support.
The State Recovery Office has provided Land Services SA with a register of those properties affected by the recent bushfires. When accessing this relief program, the address and owner of the affected property will need to be verified by Land Services SA.
The affected property owner may also be eligible for other grants or financial assistance – to find out more, visit: https://dhs.sa.gov.au/services/disaster-recovery/grants
