Building Information Reports

A Building Information Report contains some but not all of the information available in a property report.

Building Information Reports are available on properties with up to two household units only. (One building may contain several household units. For example, a large house may be divided into three flats.)


What a Building Information Report includes

The report includes the following details:

  • aerial photograph of the property
  • a list of building consent records
  • status of building consents
  • description of building work.

Copies of building permits and consents (which usually include floor plans) are not included with this report. To get a copy of this information use the building consent search.
