Remuera tops interest in property information

Remuera tops interest in property information

The latest quarterly report to Auckland City Council’s City Development Committee reported a record number of LIM (land information memorandum) applications over the period from September to December 2002.

Most of last quarter’s LIM applications were received in October and November, though December applications also remained high.

Every quarter, the committee receives a report on Auckland City Environments (ACE) performance and key activities, including resource and building consent processing, building inspections, compliance monitoring and enforcement, property information and advice. “Land information memorandum applications, better known as LIM reports, are a very good reflection of the state of play in the real estate market,” says Councillor Juliet Yates, committee chairperson. “It’s certainly an important reference document for both buyers and sellers of property.”

“Clearly Auckland City remains attractive to both new residents and new businesses. The city’s climate, its natural environment, particularly its location on two harbours, acts as a lure to newcomers.”

Remuera topped the list of suburbs showing the greatest interest in property information, while Hobson ward had the highest total applications.

Auckland City continues to offer customers an ‘urgent property information service’ and processed all LIM applications well within the 10 day statutory period, 70% in two days and 98% in five days. “It is satisfying to know that ACE is performing well, meeting or exceeding targets,” says Councillor Yates.
