Frequently asked questions

What does a Transport and Main Roads property search cover?

The Department of Transport and Main Roads provides a single electronic property search that determines the land requirements against all transport projects, including railways, busways, cycleways, passenger transport corridors, light rail and state-controlled roads.

How long does a property search take?

The Department of Transport and Main Roads will endeavour to complete property searches within 10 days, with about 90% being completed within 2 days. If the property is in an active planning area, the property search will need to be forwarded on to the relevant project team for determination.

Which approved service provider should I use?

The approved service providers work directly with professional property services, such as a solicitor or conveyancing agent. It is recommended that you seek professional support for this type of transaction. 

If you wish to perform your property search independently, Dye & Durham and CITEC (Confirm) offer this service to members of the public.

Who do I contact if I have any further questions regarding property searches?
