Building Records Searches

Building Record Searches for commercial and residential properties are available.  The search is provided in the form of a letter, comprising a list of building approvals issued for the property.  The search will advise the date of approval for the building work and the associated inspection details.  In non sewered areas it will advise if there is a treatment plant on site that requires regular servicing.  The searches also include copies of Certificates of Classifications (for commercial properties) or Final Inspection Certificates (for residential properties) where applicable.  However please note, some searches may be unsuccessful.

To request a Building Records Search, please complete the Building Search Request Form and lodge it along with the applicable fees. Council has a five business day turnaround for Building Record Searches.

Certificate of Classification Searches

For commercial buildings, shop fitouts, offices, etc, a copy of the Certificate of Classification, where one has been issued on a structure, will be provided. Consideration should be given to the age of the building that the request is for. Council's records generally date back to 1975 with the introduction of the Building Act. If the building work is prior to 1975, a Certificate of Classification may not be available. The number of Certificates can only be determined after the initial application fee has been paid.
