To help potential buyers/sellers RVCA offers a Property Inquiry Service that provides an official letter that includes:
- Whether a property is likely to be affected by Authority policies and regulations
- What general restrictions/policies would apply
- If there are any previous or outstanding violations on the property
- A copy of a map of our regulated area (if available) if it intersects with the property
This file search response provides a formal record of the inquiry and offers valuable information to the client when making decisions to purchase, build on, re-grade or alter natural features on the site. In other cases, the file search response serves as official confirmation that the property is not affected by Authority policies and regulations, and provides the client with added peace of mind. RVCA staff cannot advise you on whether or not to purchase a property; we provide the facts to help you make an educated decision.
How to apply?
To apply for this service, please complete our Property File Search Form. A fee is charged to cover the cost of reviewing each individual site and a formal, written response is issued. Staff require at least two weeks to reply.
