Land information certificates

If you are selling a property, you will need to obtain a Land Information Certificate. The Certificate is required so that the correct settlement can be made. Commonly, your solicitor or conveyancer will apply for and obtain this information.

Under section 229 of the Local Government Act 1989, Council must issue Land Information Certificates on application. The Land Information Certificate provides information regarding valuations of the particular property, the amount of rates charged and arrears/interest if applicable.

A separate certificate regarding building regulations can also be applied for.


As of the 1st of July 2022, the Council introduced a new fee structure for Land Information Certificates.

A Standard LIC is now $27.80 and the turnaround time for this to be issued and sent back to the applicant is 10 working days.
A Priority LIC is now $73.00 plus the prescribed fee ($27.80), so a total of $100.80 for a turnaround time of 3 working days.

Please be aware when ordering a certificate of the timeframes that have been allocated to each certificate.
