Apply for Land Information Certificate

Information on a Land Information Certificate

Land Information Certificates tell you the following information about the property you are purchasing:

  • all current valuations on the property including Site Value, Capital Improved Value and the Net Annual Value
  • rates including arrears and interest, and
  • property debts.

A Land Information Certificate is required because when you become the owner all rates and charges are usually paid on settlement.

Information required to apply

When you apply for a Land Information Certificate you need to provide details of the property you are purchasing such as:

  • the lot and plan number
  • the street number and street name
  • volume and folio number from the title
  • the current owner's name and address
  • your name and address.

These details help to give you the correct information on the property you are buying.

How to apply for a Land Information Certificate

Anyone can apply for a Land Information Certificate, however, your solicitor or conveyancer normally does this for you.

Privacy Act requirements with respect to ownership may apply.
