Property Information

​​​​​​​Property search

To find information about your property or a property you are interested in purchasing you can make a Property Search Request or a LIM Report. 

Council also has a Property Search Database online where you can find property and rates information.

​Property Revaluations

By law, every three years Councils carry out property revaluations for the purpose of calculating ratepayers and owners share of rates.

In August 2020, Council awarded the contract to provide rating valuation services to Opteon. Find out the latest on the 2021 revaluation of all Hamilton properties.

The process to determine the new property values involves analysing property sales, and other market evidence, within each area of the city. This process is governed by legislation and Opteon's valuers have strict guidelines they must follow. The new values, and the valuation process, will be audited and approved by the Office of the Valuer-General.

Making a request

If you require property information relating to a Building Property file, floor plans, drainage plans, code of compliance certificates,  you will need to complete a Property Search Request Form​​ (PDF, 618KB). 

Please be aware that prior to the Building Act 1991 (Act passed in July 1992)  there may be limited to no information on properties that are older 1993.

We will contact you to discuss fees, terms and conditions, payment options and timeframe.

​​​Land Information Memorandum (LIM)

If you are buying or selling a property, a LIM may answer some important questions about the property and any associated buildings. Find out more about LIMs Information here.

Project Information Memorandum (PIM)

A PIM provides specific information required for a building project that must be taken into account with the proposed design and the land on which it is to be built. This is very useful at the early design stage on what will be involved in a project. 

Find out how to apply for a PIM online and read more PIM information at P​IM Report.

Landowner rights when Council is acquiring your land

From time to time, Council needs to acquire land for public purposes such as roading. This process is governed by the Public Works Act 1981. ​
