Property Information

The Council holds information on every property in the Waimakariri District.

All property files are held in electronic format. If you wish to view a property file, either call into the Rangiora Service Centre, or complete the Release of Information Form and email to records@wmk.govt.nz. There is no charge to view your own property file in person at the Rangiora Service Centre, but for the provision of electronic information via email, disk or USB, there will be a small charge as outlined in the Release of Information Form. If you want to view a file for a property you don’t own, a small charge will also apply.

Buying a property

If you are considering purchasing a property, we recommend you get a LIM (Land Information Memorandum). This will give you extra information that isn't included in the property file that may affect the property you are looking at, such as resource consents granted for neighbouring properties.

The Real Estate Authority has useful information before you buy a property.

Is the home Homefit?

Forty percent of New Zealand homes are damp and mouldy. The NZ Green Building Council is a not for profit with a vision of healthy warm homes for New Zealand. Working with the sector, a free online tool was created where people can check if their house is healthy and warm. There is no need to register or pay.

This is designed for Kiwis looking at homes to buy or rent, or for homeowners looking to improve their property.

Visit homefit.org.nz, answer some questions on the house (for example, depth of insulation, if it has extractor fans) to receive an impartial report on how to improve. The checks and advice is independent and robust and aligns with the healthy homes standard.
