Land tax search
A land tax search certificate shows the land tax payable for that property for the financial year, and includes an estimate of land tax owing by a property vendor at settlement date.
A land tax search shows the land tax that is:
outstanding on the property you are selling and on all other properties on your land tax account (this amount must be paid before finalising the sale/transfer);
payable for the property for the financial year (this will help you to calculate how much land tax can be recovered on settlement).
Searches are based on the information available on the land tax database at the date and time of the search. A certificate is issued which includes the date and time of the search.
Refer to the
Land tax search factsheet for additional information.
The fee is $12.15 effective 1 July 2019.
This fee is updated annually in accordance with the CPI adjustment factor provided for under Section 5 of the
Fee Units Act 1997.
