Registered interests in property

If you receive an enforcement order and you have not paid by the due date, we may issue a warrant that allows an enforcement officer to impose a charge on your property (all or part of your interest in specified land, a prescribed interest or securities). This is called an 'enforcement warrant'.

Warrant registered over your vehicle

If we have registered an interest in your vehicle or vessel, this means that an interest is now recorded against that vehicle or vessel in the national Personal Property Securities Register.

If you try to sell the vehicle, the buyer will know that we have registered an interest over it and may choose not to continue with the purchase while this interest remains.

Warrant registered over your real estate property

If we have registered an interest in your real estate property, this means that a writ (warrant) has been recorded against your property with the Department of Natural Resources and Mines. You will be unable to change any ownership details or sell the property while we hold an interest in it.

We can also register an interest in other personal property.

See section 110 of the State Penalties Enforcement Act 1999 for more information.
