澳洲Australia property Missing paperwork - finding construction


在澳大利亚 The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m


Hi,

I have seem to misplaced my IP paperwork...:rolleyes: and I need a contruction date to draw up a depreciation schedule

I've spoken to my solicitor and he said that he can only provide me with a title search but no contruction date.

My mum dosen't remember what lawyer she went to do the legal work...

So is there a way i can find out what date my IP was contructed?




Thank you in advance

Could you go through that local council???
Sorry not to wise on these matters, but know all about misplacing paperwork.

Check the date of manufacture of the HWS - there is always a sticker on it.

Check inside the electricity meter box - there is often a sticker there with the date electricity was first connected.
Otherwise the local Council records should show when final approval was given.
Talk to the neighbours, they often have long memories. You are really only interested in the exact date if building depreciation can be claimed. This was first allowed in 1985.

Please pardon my ignorance... but what does "HWS" mean?

The electricity meter has been replaced a few years back as i recall but I'll give the council a try and see what kind of information they have on my IP.

Do you think going to a real estate help?

No, I don't think going to a real estate agent will help :) unless you want to buy an overpriced house.
...sorry I could not resist.

I'm in Qld. I go to the local council and ask for the sewerage plan. This costs nothing. It shows when the sewerage was first connected.

Ok thanks guys I'll give the council a call and Scott "the appreciator" already told me it's pre-1985... i was surprised cause i thought it looked "new" :rolleyes:

Just for future reference, what about the plans for the the house and title search? go see my solicitor and his not going to charge me is he? i don't know him that well hahahah


Thank you Michael
