Request Ownership Details

A request for property ownership details, for the purposes of issuing a Protection Works Notice or an Application for Report and Consent (Dispensation), which relate to a proposed Building Permit, can be made by completing the Request for Property Ownership Details and lodging with the Building Services.

Note: This service is provided free of charge. Lead times vary dependent upon workloads.

To obtain adjoining property ownership details for the purpose of common fencing, a request can be made in writing, by the owner of the property, with Frankston City Council's Rates and Valuations Department.

For all other property ownership requests, a written application through "Freedom of Information" is required.

Request Building Plans and Documents

Properties within the suburbs of Frankston, Frankston North, Frankston South, Karingal and Seaford can request records that generally date back to the late 1970's. 

Requests for information prior to 1993 for properties within the suburbs of Langwarrin, Langwarrin South, Skye, and Carrum Downs are law specific and may differ to the above. 


Please note: Copies of plans/documentation can only be provided to the current owner of a property. If you are not the current owner, written authorisation from the owner is required. There is no guarantee that plans will be available.

View building plans and documents related to an adjoining property or a property that I do not own

The Building Regulations 2018 stipulate that plans and documents relating to a Building Permit can not be viewed by anyone other than the property owner.

It should however be noted that where consent is given in writing from the owners of the property, plans and documents can be viewed, subject to availability.
