The Registrar-General’s Plan Presentation Guidelines (PPG) describes the requirements for property related plans lodged Land Services SA in South Australia.
Surveying and lodging organisations can electronically submit the following plan types with Land Services SA (LSSA) using the Electronic Plan Lodgement (EPL) system:
You must print all forms in black, on both sides of white A4, 80-gsm paper. If you do not have access to a duplex printer, use the manual feed option to produce a double-sided copy.
The National Mortgage Form (NMF) Design Specification requires single sided printing, however Land Services SA will accept the NMF form in either Simplex (single-sided) or Duplex (double-sided).You do not need the Registrar-General's approval to reproduce panel forms in hard copy or digital formats. The Registrar-General may refuse to accept any instrument, annexure sheet or inserted sheet for registration, which does not comply with the LTO Form Standards (PDF 313.5 KB).
For optimum performance and security, we recommend using the following browser versions or higher:
The forms are accessible for both PC and Mac users with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. The text format is pre-set. Font size, type, colour, boldness, underlining and italics cannot be adjusted.
As a minimum, you will need to have Windows 7 or above and Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. You may need to change your PC or browser settings.
There are a number of localised settings on your computer which may restrict your ability to access the LTO forms - eg your 'Pop-up blocker' might be turned on.
If you have the correct software and are still experiencing issues opening the forms after trying the 'save as' option, you could try accessing the forms using a different browser - we recommend Internet Explorer.
The forms have been published as editable documents, in order to ensure they are in an appropriate format for scanning into SAILIS - eg page margins are set to the required parameters.
If the published forms do not meet the requirements of your business, you may wish to make enquiries with one of the external providers who offer alternative versions of the forms as part of their conveyancing software packages.
The forms consist of a 'cover sheet' followed by page one two and so on. Clients are to print the forms double sided where page one of the dealing is on the back of the cover sheet (which is not numbered). Once printed, forms should be stapled together in the top left-hand corner.
Registration forms cater for all non-division dealing types. Guidance notes are provided for most LTO forms. These are of a general nature and cannot replace the advice of a legal practitioner or registered conveyancer.
Division forms cater for division type dealings and additional consent forms.
