Notification of a death
A Priority Notice is a notice which is lodged against a Certificate of Title or Crown Lease to reserve priority for a pending transaction that will affect that land.
Priority Notices are not mandatory, and they can be lodged by any person who intends to lodge a dealing, or dealings with Land Services SA.
In most cases, Priority Notices are lodged on behalf of a party to a conveyancing transaction by a legal practitioner or conveyancer through the South Australian Integrated Land Information System (SAILIS) or relevant Electronic Lodgment Network Operator.
Priority Notices are effective for 60 calendar days from the date of lodgement, with an option to extend a Priority Notice (once only) for a further period of 30 calendar days.
For more information on Priority Notices – see the Registrar-General’s Notice to Lodging Parties #177 on the Introduction of Priority Notices.
Information sessions on Priority Notices were scheduled to be held on Tuesday 17 March 2020.
These sessions were going to cover results of the survey undertaken by the Office of the Registrar-General, system and policy changes, how Land Services SA deals with discrepancies between the Priority Notice and dealings lodged, and provide a SAILIS demonstration.
The live sessions were cancelled as one of the precautionary measures implemented in response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. Given the importance of Priority Notices, the sessions were recorded instead and a video recording of the presentation and SAILIS demonstrations are available in the videos below.
