Property File Reports can include information found in Horowhenua District Council's records, if it is available, relating to:
- building consents or permits (if building work does not have a consent, it won't be included in the file);
- drainage plans;
- floor plans;
- specifications - elevations;
- consent notices; and
- certificates of title.
A property file does not replace a LIM report. We highly recommend obtaining a LIM report if you are considering purchasing a property as it provides additional information.
Please note: You don't need to order and pay for a Property File Request if you're already applying for a LIM Report on the same property. The information you receive from a Property File Request will be fully contained within the LIM Report.
