Land information certificates (LICs)

This certificate tells you about the property that you are purchasing so that when you become the owner, all rates and charges are paid on settlement.

Anyone can apply for a Land Information Certificate, although usually it is your solicitor or conveyancer who does this for you. Privacy Act requirements may apply.

The cost to obtain a LIC for 2017-2018 Financial Year is $25.90.
