What is on a property file?

  • Building consents
  • Building plans
  • Code compliance certificates
  • Certificate of acceptance documents
  • As-builts (internal sewer and stormwater plans)
  • Planning and subdivision information - resource consents

All associated cross-lease properties and unit title property information will be provided in the property file.

The scanned images of the property files are high-resolution and very good quality so you can be assured of a replica of the original.

Fees and delivery

Property files cost $48.00 (incl. GST). They are delivered either on USB stick or via email and take three working days to compile.

You will need to let us know what kind of computer you will be using to open the files, as the file delivery format will differ depending on the operating system (Windows/Mac) you are using.

Via email: you will receive an email with a link to download your property file via secure FTP (file transfer protocol) and save it on your computer. The link is valid for 14 days.

On USB stick: you can either pick up your property file USB from our customer service centre at 91 Willow Street, or have it couriered to you for a $5 fee. Please count two extra working days for courier delivery. Courier delivery is only available to addresses within New Zealand and is not available on weekends or public holidays.

Property files are not available in paper form.
