Why do I pay a mortgage registration fee?
The mortgage registration fee is a State Government charge for the registration of a home loan. Because the property acts as security for a home loan, the government requires a home loan to be registered so that all claims on a property can be checked by any future buyers of that property. This fee can vary from state to state, so check the website of the revenue office in your state or territory.
