Access Property Values Online
April 4, 2002
You can now delve into property details from your PC, thanks to the latest feature on Auckland City’s website.
The new service, which covers every residential and business property in Auckland city, offers a wide range of information about land and property, including capital, rateable and land values, land area, and current annual rates. To use the new service visit www.akcity.govt.nz/yourproperty.
Auckland City’s customer centres manager Raewyn Bennet says that although this information has always been publicly available, the council has put it on the web in response to high customer demand.
“Our call centre already deals with a large number of calls from solicitors, estate agents and ratepayers who want information about a particular property that they might be selling or buying.
“Having that information on the web simply makes it easier and more convenient to access. It’s another step in the council’s longer term goal of making more services and information available through our website,” she says.
The service only covers properties in the Auckland city area. All information held on the website is publicly available and the service will not offer access to private details such as rates accounts.
You can access Auckland City’s website for free by visiting any of the council’s 17 libraries.
