Landlord Registration renewal

If you registered as a landlord, you must renew your registration every three years and pay a renewal fee. If you’re the lead landlord in a joint owner group, you’re responsible for paying the registration renewal fee. You don’t need to renew a registration if you’re no longer a landlord.

Registration renewal date

Check your registration certificate for your renewal date. Eight weeks before your landlord registration is due to end, you’ll receive an email about renewing your registration at the email address you used to register. It's important to check your spam folder in case you don’t receive the email in your inbox.

If you don’t receive the email, contact the Landlord Registration Scheme and ask them to resend the email:

Paying a renewal fee

You can use a credit or debit card to pay your renewal fee online. To pay, go to:

Joint owner landlords renewing registration

For a joint owner group, each landlord needs to renew their registration but only the lead landlord pays the renewal fee.

Before logging in, the lead landlord will need:

  • joint owners’ names
  • landlord registration number for each joint owner
  • email address
  • a credit or debit card to pay the renewal fee

Creating keycodes for other joint owner landlords

You need to:

  • select Manage my registration
  • enter your email and password
  • at Property details screen, click Edit for the property that is jointly owned
  • below Property information, Property ownership heading, click “ I own this property jointly with others”
  • click Add a joint owner
  • enter the joint owner’s name, email address and landlord registration number
  • click Add this joint owner
  • write down the keycode created for the joint owner
  • click Add another joint owner to include more joint owners
  • click Save and continue
  • pay the renewal fee

You should give a keycode to each joint owner. They’ll need this to complete their renewal registration. 

Using a keycode to renew your landlord registration

If the lead landlord gave you a keycode, you must use this when renewing your landlord registration as part of a joint owner group.

Go to:

You need to:

  • select Manage my registration
  • enter your email and password
  • on Property Details screen, click Remove beside the property address that is jointly owned
  • on Remove a property screen, click Remove
  • click Confirm
  • on return to Property Details screen, click Confirm New Joint Ownership
  • enter the keycode
  • click Confirm if this is the jointly owned property
  • repeat the process if you have keycodes for other jointly owned properties
  • click Renew
