Property information

Property files and reports

Auckland Council holds a range of information about all properties in the region. This includes:

  • rating information
  • building and drainage plans
  • consent information
  • licensing details and more.

We hold the information in a variety of formats and it is available to view or purchase.

Courier fees for property files are charged at cost. See courier fees (PDF 250KB) for an estimate.


How to order

Add a third party report to a property file

The council does not inspect or sign off building work completed before the Building Act came into effect (before 1 July 1992).

If you own a structure built before 1 July 1992, and you have concerns about its compliance, you can request a third party report from a suitably qualified building professional.

If you’ve obtained a third party report, you can submit it to the council to add to the property file, as a matter of public record.

The council does not accept any responsibility for checking or validating these reports.

There is a fee to submit a third party report – see the fee guide.

To submit a third party report, complete the third party report form (PDF 72KB) and send it to:
