​What is in a property file?

A property file provides documents not included in a Land Information Memorandum (LIM) report, such as:

  • building and resource consent documents
  • any correspondence with us about the property.

A property file does not replace a LIM report and you should get it in addition to a LIM report.

The contents of the file depend on the work done on the property that we are aware of. If building work does not have a consent, it won't be in the file.

Our contact details are included in the property file, in case you have any questions.

Our tip

Compare the latest floor plan in the property file with the current layout of the home, to make sure all the building work is legal and has a code of compliance.
Properties built before the 1992 Building Act, under a building permit, did not need a final inspection or a code of compliance. Get a private pre-purchase building inspection if you are concerned about the condition of a house you want to buy.
