How can I confirm property details on a map?
Select ‘View and confirm on map’ on the ‘Confirm property’ screen. The map will display your selected property and surrounding properties.
Choose an alternate address on the map to change the property location.
How will I know which property certificates are available for a property?
The information for a given property depends on the town, suburb or locality where it sits. Based on the information you enter, the available certificate list displays.
If multiple authorities appear for a certificate type, you’ll need to identify which authority applies to your property.
What is a certificate warning?
A property certificate may have a warning associated with its use. This usually appears as a red exclamation icon in the certificate list next to the certificate name.
After you select a certificate with a warning, a dialogue box will appear, which you need to accept to continue with your order.
