    Hi,

    Interested in this empty block of land.

    How can I find out owners name and contact details ?

    The land title will give me name of owner but not contact details.

    I dont think Council will release details.

    Neighbours dont know who owns it.

    ????????

    Then it's down to detective work. White pages, FB, insta, pipl.com, births/deaths/marriages, google, Hitmen 'r' Us etc.

    Go here - put in property details (you'll need to log in as a guest)
    If the owner is a company, you'll then need to do a company search (ASIC)

    Different states allow different levels of access to the personal details of property owners. Vic is very restrictive compared to some other states.

    Rp data in vic does have an ad-on to get the personal details of owners, but i think its about $300 a month (free for registered re agents), and im not sure if it gives whats on the title, or extra info such as phone numbers/personal address etc

    @AnneC - if you find a method outside of a title search please let me know on here or pm.

    Title gave me name and address but no phone number. Will see how I go with writing a letter.
