NSW Land Registry Services (NSW LRS) is helping landholders affected by the recent NSW bushfires by providing title searches and plan images of their property free of charge.

Property searches and plans can assist landholders with insurance claims and development applications to council, as well as provide peace of mind regarding land ownership following natural disasters.

NSW LRS Chief Executive Officer, Adam Bennett, said, “The recent NSW bushfires have had a devastating impact on people and property across the state. NSW Land Registry Services wants to do what we can to assist affected landowners as they begin the difficult process of dealing with the aftermath and rebuilding their lives and their properties. We encourage affected landowners to contact our team to see how we can help.”

Support for affected customers

If you have been affected by the recent bushfires and would benefit from access to land and property information from the land titles register, please call our Contact Centre on 1300 396 076 (regional callers) or (02) 8776 3575 and we can discuss how best to assist you.

NSW LRS operates the land titles register on behalf of the NSW Government, as well as the General Register of Deeds and the Water Access Licence Register. These registers hold essential information about properties across the state, including about ownership, restrictions on use, title boundaries, plans, and water access and use. Information held on these registers is available for landowners to view through land and property information searches.
