Property Location Browser

The Property Location Browser (PLB) is a free map-based application. It can be used to view land administration boundaries and to get information about the ownership of land including:

  • plan references
  • parcel numbers
  • certificates of title
  • dual names
  • valuation numbers
  • addresses
  • links to SAILIS.

Do not rely on PLB data and maps for any purpose other than to get these property details. Access primary land administration data through SAILIS.

The map and image are only a general representation. Spatial accuracy is not guaranteed.

The PLB is available 8.00 am to 8.00 pm each business day. It may not be available during weekends or public holidays. You can link to SAILIS once you have found a parcel of land in the PLB.
