Dear Elizabeth

I have made some enquiries with Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV) in
relation to your request below.  CAV advise as follows;

"The FOI request asks for details from the Owners Corporation Register
pursuant to Part 9 of the act.

Part 9, section 147 outlines the requirement for the applicant at
registration of a sub division to create an Owners Corporation and
establish an Owners Corporation Register.  The maintenance of this
register is the obligation of the Owners Corporation created at that time.

Section 150 provides information concerning individuals entitled to
inspect this register and the regulations outline the prescribed fee.   As
each register is held by an individual Owners Corporation, it would not be
subject to FOI provisions.  Under the legislation access is limited to
"... a lot owner, a mortgagee of a lot or a purchaser of a lot or the
representative of a lot owner or a mortgagee or a purchaser of a lot, ..."
.  

With respect to the material requested, CAV does have a Register of Owners
Corporation Managers, that is published on its website
 [1]http://multimedia.consumer.vic.gov.au/re...

This information is freely available and the public can access the
following categories of information.  The information can be copied into a
spread sheet for further analysis if required.
 
 

In relation to information on individual lots,  CAV does not collect this
information. "

I hope this is of assistance.

If you have any other queries please don't hesitate to contact this
office.

Regards
Kathy

Dear Victorian Department of Justice & Regulation,

ATT: Kathy

Thank you for the response, but it seems things have gone full circle.

You will see that I originally approached the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (https://delwp.vic.gov.au/), appealing to provide a bulk download of the header level detail of their "Owners Corporations Search Report (Premium)" within LANDATA REGD TM. However, they referred me to your area despite the knowledge i had gained that indicated a report could be provided on an individual property.

"Owners Corporation Search Report (Premium)
Copyright State of Victoria. This publication is copyright. No part may be
reproduced by any process except in accordance with the provisions of the
Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) and for the purposes of Section 32 of the Sale of Land

at the time and in the form obtained from the LANDATA REGD TM System. The State
of Victoria accepts no responsibility for any subsequent release, publication or
