It does not include filed plans numbered 100,000 and above.
These are available from the product ordering facility on PropertyAssist.
PIERS Online is always available subject to system and data update requirements. For assistance during business hours contact PropertyAssist Services.
Public users log on as a 'guest' and pay for transactions by credit card before receiving the plan (MasterCard and Visa are accepted).
The first time you log on to PIERS Online, as either as a guest user or as an account customer, there are a number of steps required to load it to view, print and save plan images.
The page that appears explains the requirements. It won't appear the next time you start if you leave the check box ticked.
PIERS will start loading. For some internet browsers, you will need to adjust the pop-up blocker settings to allow pop-ups from the www.piers.landservices.sa.gov.au site.
You must agree to the conditions of use each time you use PIERS. If you don't agree to the conditions PIERS will not load.
This will allow you to view, print and save plan images. This may take up to two minutes to download if you are using a dial-up internet connection. When the download is complete, a window labelled 'Security Warning' will appear to prompt you to install the viewer.
This will complete the loading process. There should be a line of greyed-out icons below the print visible button. These indicate that the viewer has been installed successfully.
If you are unable to install the image viewer you can still use the 'email me this search' link to get full resolution images.
A customer reference is an option mainly used by account customers to allocate different purchases to individual clients.
You set your own customer reference in the main plan viewing window using the 'set customer reference' link provided. This reference is used to record your purchases. Once your reference is set, it will be recorded with all your subsequent purchases until you change to a new reference.
A help link is available on the site. This will assist you in using the search facilities and downloading images. For more information on the terms used in PIERS Online see Glossary of property terms.
