Why can't I find the address I’m looking for?

An address may have a different number to the number you expect, or no number at all. Try typing the road name without a number and see if it appears in the list of results.
Check that you’ve entered the correct spelling.
Check if the address is known by another name. The official name may differ to the name the road is locally known as.
The suburb details may be different to what you expect. Just type the first part of the address and see if it appears in the suggestions.

Frequently Asked Questions - Reports
How do I verify ownership of a property?
The most common ways to verify the owner of a property are to buy:
A Title Report that will show the current owner(s), of a property. For more information on the Title Report, click here.
Order a Certificate of Title - For more information on ordering titles, click here.
Why doesn’t a property have a valuation or sales history?
The most common reasons for this are:
The property may be public land, and have no current valuation data. Check the property report or the cadastral for information about public land.
The property may have been subdivided, and your search has shown you the original property. This is common when searching by old titles.
There may have been a problem matching the property to a valuation reference. Try searching for the property differently, such as by the owner's name, title, or street address. Please contact the Customer Service Centre on 0508-483 772 or via email to report this problem; they may be able to help you find the information you want.
Why is there no title report for the property I searched?
Occasionally a property will have a title cancelled before a replacement title has been issued. This is usually found with newly subdivided properties.
Why aren't all of the reports available for my property search?
Some properties do not have enough information for all the reports we offer. These reports have been made unavailable to prevent you buying an empty report.
What should I do if the data in my report is incorrect?
If you find that any of the information in a report is incorrect, please contact our Customer Service Centre on 0508-4-83772 or to send us an email, click here.
