In Australia, like in some other federal states, there is no federal unified real estate register. At the level of states and areas there are original registration and register systems under the jurisdiction of authorized divisions of regional governments.
The real estate registration system and registers themselves are computerized.

The following information is available in electronice registers:
- General technical description of an object
- Current registered owner
- Encumbrances, restrictions, mortgages
- Graphical data
Additionally, the following may be obtained from registers:
- reports on ownership

Extracts from registers may generally be obtained in electronic or in paper form with apostille.

Australia joined the Hague Convention on simplified legalization of documents on July 11, 1994. On March 16, 1995 the Convention came into force.
Thus, documents issued in Australia are subject to legalization based on the apostilling procedure, after certified translation such documents acquire full legal force on the territory of all other Hague Convention Member States.
As a rule of thumb, apostillation of extracts takes about two weeks.
