Property History Report Quote Request

Thank you for considering House Histories to research and compile a report on the history of your property. Our Property History Reports focus on the lives of the people that have owned the property and the land associated with it. It also explores changes to the structures and landscape over time.

What you receive

Your Property History Report Package will include:

  • A written account of the people who have owned the property or the land it was a part of and of structural and landscape changes;
  • An ownership table of the property detailing conveyance transactions since the original crown grant;
  • An Appendix of land records obtained as part of the research of the ownership of the property; and
  • An Appendix of council records as part of the research of the property, where requested.

You will receive a beautifully bound hard copy of your report, a PDF copy and a disc of the report and copies of the individual land record and council record documents.

A note on Council records

Our research of the property is typically enriched by access to and examination of the file held by the relevant local council in your area. These files hold Building Applications, plans and other material related to the structural evolution of the property. These can be obtained by you and provided to us or we can obtain them on your behalf. You may elect not to include this component of the research in your report.

Time Frames

Within 5 business days we will research and prepare our report and make a PDF version available to you while waiting for the Council file to be made available, should you wish to include this option. This can be ideal if the report is being used for the purposes of marketing a property for sale since relevant historical information can be made available at the earliest opportunity. Once the Council files are available for inspection (this can be between 2 to 6 weeks depending on the Council), we will examine them and incorporate our findings into the report.

If you do not have pressing deadlines for provision of the report then we can do the report in one stage. Our quote will be structured to reflect your preferred approach. Therefore we ask that you please indicate how you would like the report to be issued.


Our quotes tend to be between $850 and $1500 (plus GST) for a typical character home with an average sized garden. There may be elements of a property we identify on receipt of a quote request which are a focus of the historical research and thus affect the quote we give. We will provide details of this in the quote.
