Building file searches

You may request a building file search for a property, which means Council will search its files for any record of development or building approvals and make it available for you to view.

Council will complete the search within 10-15 working days (subject to demand) and will inform you when the information is ready to be inspected. Once notified, you will have two (2) weeks to view the information before it is returned to Archives.

Please complete the Application for Search & Viewing of Files, take the application to our Customer Service Centre at 55 Spring Street, Bondi Junction and pay the required fee.

Council will then conduct the search, but cannot guarantee that the search will provide all of the information you require.
