Assistance during bushfire recovery
Landgate Media release: Thursday, 14 January 2016
The State Government is providing assistance to property owners and South-West communities as they rebuild and recover from recent bushfires.
Lands Minister Terry Redman said Landgate was providing duplicate Certificates of Titles which were lost or damaged during the fires, at no cost to applicants and will assist with property ownership details if requested.
Landgate is also facilitating the re-pegging of property boundaries by re-establishing important infrastructure that provides location information.
"Due to the scale of the destruction, property boundaries may be unclear. South-West residents can be assured that Landgate will determine these to ensure the accurate placement of buildings and fences," Mr Redman said.
"Other information available through Landgate includes aerial photography to determine the location of roads and property addresses."
