Land Information Certificate
Land Information Certificates (LICs) provide information regarding valuation, rates, charges and other moneys owing, and are usually used by solicitors/conveyancers to calculate settlement amounts when a property transfers.
An LIC provides information regarding valuation, rates, charges, other moneys owing and any orders and notices made under the Local Government Act 1989, the Local Government Act 1958 or under a local law of Council.
It is not required to include information regarding planning, building, health, land fill, land slip, flooding information or service easements. Information regarding these matters may be available from Council or the relevant authority.
Anyone can apply for an LIC, although usually it is your solicitor or conveyancer who does this for you. Privacy Act requirements may apply.
The certificate is valid for 3 months from the date of issue and Council will provide a verbal update within this period.
