Grantor identification or identifier refers to the details that are used to identify the grantor in a registration.

The rules for grantor identification are set out in the PPS Regulations.

In brief, the Regulations provide that where the grantor is an individual, the identifiers are to be sourced from the documents in this order:

  • the current driver's licence issued by an Australian state or territory
  • proof of age card issued by an Australian state or territory
  • Australian passport
  • Australian visa
  • passport from country grantor usually resides, or
  • details on birth certificate.

If the grantor is an organisation, different rules apply depending on whether the grantor is a body corporate, a partnership, trustee of a trust, or a body politic.

See the PPS Regulations for more information on the grantor identification rules.
