Buying or selling

When buying or selling a property, you should seek legal advice from a solicitor or conveyancer who will provide you with detailed information to protect your interests.

There are also a number of different types of certificates required and/or recommended that provide prospective purchasers with information such as development restrictions, building approvals, outstanding rates payable, and whether you can build on a particular block of land.

If you are a prospective purchaser, you can also make some initial enquiries about the property you’re interested in by accessing our ePlanning tools. Information such as zoning, height of building restrictions, applicable Development Control Plans (DCPs) and the types of development that can be undertaken on a property, is available by using these tools.

This information is provided as a guide only and you should always seek legal advice and consult your real estate agent regarding your specific requirements.
