Property Searches

Request information about a property

There are several different property reports that you can request, depending on the type of information you are seeking. Some of the reports are free of charge, others you will need to pay for.

Property searches are commonly requested when buying or renovating a property. All of the reports listed below provide different information, and you may need to request multiple reports to be fully informed about a property.

How long does it take?

Property searches require 5 working days completion time from the date of lodgement.

Our aim is to provide quality customer service to our clients and every endeavour is made to supply property information by the time requested.

If you provide us with an email address, we will be able to supply your property search information by email rather than by post.

Payment of fees

Property search request fees must be paid in full prior to commencement of the searches, and cannot be cancelled once processing has commenced. You can pay by cheque, credit card, or with cash or EFTPOS at the Customer Service Centre at Council. Regular users (e.g. solicitors, conveyancing firms) can apply for a Townsville Online Products and Services (TOPS) account by downloading a credit application form. Please refer to the Schedule of fees and charges for full details of fees and charges.
