Property inquiry forms

Land and Property Information (LPI) can help you obtain information from a range of organisations or authorities that may have an interest in a property. Inquiries can be made about:

  • plans by various agencies, authorities and utilities that could impact on or restrict use of the property
  • Local Council certificates under s149(2) of the Environmental Assessment and Planning Act 1979
  • utility matters such as special meter readings and sewer diagrams.

Inquiries are usually made by buyers or sellers of property in connection with contracts for sale of land. Vendors must provide copies of various documents such as council certificates with a contract and disclose whether any government interests exist in the land.

Some authorities record restrictions in LPI's Central Register of Restrictions (CRR) and LPI can provide a report on restrictions recorded in the CRR. With other authorities, LPI will deliver your inquiry to them, within one business day, and the authorities will respond direct to you.

Applicants using this service must ensure that their completed form is provided to LPI not less that 14 days before the documents are required by the Applicant. This is to ensure that there is adequate time for the authorities to process and provide the required documentation back to you.

Applicants should receive a response from the authorities within 10 working days from receipt of their form by LPI. Please ensure that you contact LPI on T: 02 9228 6712 if you have not received all the responses by that time.
