This change however is not applicable to Valuers. While RP data  one of the bigger provider of real estate ownership data adjusts it systems   valuers using this system will also be temporarily affected.

The Property, Titles and Maps web pages of the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) provide information about land titles, property data,valuations, land surveying and naming places in Victoria.

The Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) through Land Victoria collects, manages, releases and sells a wide range of property information for Victoria and most of it is available online.


LANDATA® is Land Victoria’s online search service, providing access to title and property information for the general public and a range of professional clients.

Real Estate Search Restrictions – Victoria

The government agency “LANDATA” requires that RP Data make changes to the property services and information products to ensure that accessing owner names and addresses from government records is immediately restricted. Rp data is proposing  this sector become a collaborative initiative with the industry   becoming self regulated with government oversight instead of restrictions being imposed

Victorian Land Searches and Victorian Conveyancing are restricted to organisations that have signed the current CITEC Confirm Customer Agreement.

Further restrictions apply to Victorian Land Index Searches (search by owner name, lot/plan, volume/folio, address). To access these searches clients must sign the Landata Deed of Grant in addition to the CITEC Confirm Customer Agreement.
