Requesting Disclosure Statements

You can request and obtain copy of disclosure statements or amended disclosure statements by completing the Disclosure Statement Request form and sending it to the Records Team at [email protected]. A member of the Team will respond to your request within 1-2 business days. A reference number and payment options for the $38.00 retrieval fee will be provided. 

File Copy Requests (“FCRs”) — Real Estate Development Marketing Act (“REDMA”)

If the request is for a disclosure statement or disclosure statement amendment under REDMA, a reference number (FCR) will be provided. After the $38.00 retrieval fee has been paid, the Records Team will retrieve the file and determine the number of pages. They will provide the page count and a cost estimate at $1.00 scanning fee per page, along with payment options. Once the scanning fee has been paid, the requested document(s) in PDF format will be sent to you by email.

If there is nothing on file, we will respond to you advising this.

All fees are non-refundable, non-transferable, and are not subject to GST. A receipt confirming payment can be provided to you upon request.

Rental Disclosure Requests (“RDRs”) — Strata Property Act (“SPA”)

If you are requesting a rental disclosure statement or rental disclosure statement amendment, it will be processed as a freedom of information (“FOI”) request under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
