About Property Reports

There are different Report types, and depending on the property, you may have to search in a particular way in order to get the information you require. For most properties, you can use the Reports service to search for an address or lot/plan. For other properties, you will need to use the Interactive Map to navigate by zooming in, or by searching for a nearby property and panning across, then using the select tool. Firstly, there are Basic Reports which show no dimensions, Paid Reports which do show the dimensions of the parcel or property, and there are Local Government Reports, also free.

Secondly, there are "parcel" reports and "property" reports.
A parcel is defined as the smallest unit of land able to be transferred within Victoria's cadastral system - usually has one proprietor or owner - is described by its parcel description (either lot/plan or allotment/section/parish). Parcel descriptions are not unique, ie two parcels can have the same parcel descriptions.
A property is defined as land under common occupation particularly for the purpose of rating, billing or habitation. Properties are typically described by street address or a "rate assessment number" allocated by an authority, eg local government or utility. A property can consist of one parcel (eg a suburban house block); many parcels (eg a farm); or part of a parcel (eg a shop in a development). Council's view of property is usually seen as being definitive and is described by a Council Property Number (CPN).

Property Types

map of a simple property Single property - one parcel, one address
eg 2 Powlett St Sunbury / Lot 10 LP7457
Use the Reports service to search by address or lot/plan, or use the map
map of a property with only a crown description Crown Description - may not have a property / address associated
eg Allot. 3 Sec. 5A TOWNSHIP OF WARRNAMBOOL
Use the Reports service to search by crown description, or use the map
map of a multi-lot property Multi-lot property with many parcels
eg 420 Gundowring Road Gundowring
Use Reports service to search by address. If you get a paid property report (the one with the dimensions) you will get the dimensions for the whole property.
map of a parcel within a multi-lot property and a lot/plan description One of the parcels (with a lot/plan description) belonging to a multi-lot property
eg Lot 1 TP 161425
Use Report service to search by lot/plan. If you get a paid property report you will get the dimensions for this parcel only, not the whole property.
map of a parcel within a multi-lot property and crown description One of the parcels (with a crown description) belonging to a multi-lot property
eg Allot. 1 Sec. 4 Parish Tangambalanga
eg Allot. 1 Sec. 4 Parish 3541 (3541 is the code for Tangambalanga)
Use Report service to search by crown description. If you get a paid property report you will get the dimensions for this parcel only, not the whole property.
map of a property One parcel with many properties
eg Shopping Centre at 120 Rosamond Road Maribyrnong / Lot 2 PS417452
Use the Reports service to search for the address or the lot/plan. Alternatively, use the Interactive Map.
map of a property One property from a parcel with many properties
eg 8200/120 Rosamond Road Maribyrnong
This property is part of a parcel (Lot 2 PS417452) so it cannot be searched as lot/plan. You can use the Reports service to search by address, but the Paid Report will show the dimensions to the whole parcel, not the individual unit, because no plan of an individual unit exists. This is because you cannot have a two-dimensional plan of a three-dimensional subdivision. The only difference between this and the whole parcel, is the Council Property Number, since council recognises this as a rateable, billable property. You can get the Council Property Number from a Free Report.

If you use the map, you cannot select this property, because it not shown on the plan. You can only select the whole parcel.
