Landonline requests for dealings

This page includes information about Requests in Landonline, the Request Types that are available and how they should be used.

In addition to creating and lodging Cadastral Survey Datasets and title dealings, Landonline customers are able to use the ‘Requests’ function.  Requests are the method for Landonline customers to: 

  • request copies of land records that are not already available in Landonline,
  • access subject matter experts who can assist with:
    • investigation for complex dealing and survey matters, 
    • requisition or rejection notices, and
    • correcting titles, surveys or spatial information..

Most requests are completed within two to five working days, although standard response times vary for some requests.

The “Request type” you select is key to ensuring you receive the right help or information. Every Request you create will automatically be assigned a number.  Keep a record of that number.  View your Requests in the “My Work” folder in your Workspace.

If your Request concerns a dealing or survey that is not at that time with LINZ (it has not been submitted and is still in your Workspace ‘In Progress’), then you should provide information about the dealing or survey with your Request (eg copies of instruments).  The Technical Advisors (who handle most Requests) cannot ‘shadow’ your Workspace and cannot view a dealing or survey until it has been submitted to LINZ.

Provide survey and title references where relevant – you do not need to provide copies of documents that are searchable in Landonline.  You can upload images/documents to your Request.
