If you are interested in selling or buying a property, you can apply for a Land Information Memorandum (LIM) to help you thoroughly check it out.
What a LIM includes
A LIM is a comprehensive report that has all relevant information the Council knows about a property or section, including:
- any special feature of the land Council knows about including:
- the downhill movement
- gradual sinking or wearing away of any land
- the falling of rock or earth
- possible contamination or hazardous substances
- information the Council holds on private and public stormwater and sewerage drains
- rates information
- any consents, notices, orders or requisitions affecting the land or buildings
- District Plan classifications that relate to the land or buildings
- any other classifications on the land or buildings notified to the Council by network utility operators in relation to the Building Act 2004
- any other information the Council deems relevant.
What a LIM doesn't include
A LIM doesn't include the building permit and consent plans or documents.
If you need the documents, which may include floor plans, use our building consent search service.
What you'll need to apply for a LIM
When applying for a LIM, please remember to attach a recent Record of Title (up to three months old), to your LIM application, as we are unable to process your request without this documentation.
A Record of Title is available through LINZ (Land Information New Zealand). Please ensure you choose the ‘Current Title’ option when ordering the Record of Title online.
