Register or discharge a mortgage

Spectrum mortgages apply to management rights and spectrum licences. They act as security of payment for these licences. Only a manager or rightholder of the licence can register or discharge a mortgage.

Register a mortgage

Whenever any management rights or spectrum licences are intended to be charged with or made security for payment of any money, the manager or rightholder must present a memorandum of mortgage to the Registrar of Radio Frequencies.

An online statutory Form 11 Memorandum of mortgage is required to be submitted online in the Register of Radio Frequencies (RRF)(external link) to register the mortgage document.

The online Form 11 is available from the Spectrum Forms menu after logging onto the RRF.
