More than 400 people work at the titles office and they take their jobs seriously.
Their dedication and attention to detail gives Victorians peace of mind when it comes to their homes.
The innovation they’ve achieved over the years is second to none, and our titling system in Victoria is envied around the world.
The titles office created $300 million in revenue last year.
That's $300 million that was returned to the public to fund schools, hospitals, roads, and other highly valued public services.
Selling the titles office only delivers a one-off sugar hit for the government but will create ongoing issues for Victorians around ongoing cost and efficiency.
What's worse, we know privatisation doesn't work.
Victoria has a history of privatising public assets only to see costs increase and service quality decline.
Just look at the cost of electricity now, our muddled public transport system, not to mention traffic cameras, and prisons run for profit.
If the titles office is sold to a private company it will affect everyone from first-home-owners to property developers.
Fees are predicted to quadruple as seen recently in Canada, and costly title insurance will be a likely requirement for all homeowners.
If sold, any revenue made from the titles office will go straight into the pockets of private company shareholders.
Buying property in Victoria is hard enough. Why does the Government want to make it harder?
We must stop the selling of this valuable public asset. Because once it's gone, it's gone for good.
Please send a letter to your local MP and let them know that selling the land titles office is not what Victorians want.
