A land information memorandum (LIM) is a document issued (at your request and on payment of a fee) by a territorial authority such as the Council. Anyone may apply for a LIM which contains information on any land within the territorial authority district.
A LIM abides by the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987, Section 44A.
Important information about information that your LIM could contain
If you are thinking about carrying our repairs/rebuild of your damaged building / property, remember to
It's important to update your LIM records with details of repairs, as having an accurate and complete property information will support any future property sale you may undertake. Property vendors are bound to provide true and correct answers to the questions any potential buyer may ask.
If you have had a red or yellow placard on your property at any time, then the Council is required by law to supply this information on your LIM. This is why it's so important that when your property is fixed, you update your property records to reflect the repairs and current state of your building.
What information do I get?
- rates and water charges
- refuse and recycling collection information
- building permits and consents
- protected buildings and trees, historic buildings
- resource consents and subdivision consents
- any special characteristics of the land or buildings
