To request a search on a property, the property search form will need to be completed (includes a list of searches and associated fees).
There is also a fact sheet to help you.
Some searches can only be done by the property owner, so make sure that any consent needed is attached along with the property search form.
A property search form is needed if you are looking for any of the following information on a property:
- Rates, property and water
- Building, plumbing and drainage
- Planning and development (i.e. approvals in effect for the premises/existing use rights – known land use history of the site)
- Environment and health.
Payment is required along with the completed form.
