There are two sets of historical information associated with a property:
- Historical information about a property
- Historical ownership of a property
Identifying historical information about a property
Historical information about a property includes changes to a property such as when it has been subdivided or when a property title has been merged.
To include a property’s historical information in your search results, tick the Include historical properties checkbox.

The label Historical will be displayed against search results which are historical. In the example below, 22 Mashobra Street historically had a single title. It was then subdivided into 2 separate lots and assigned the address of 22 Mashobra Street for Lot 1, and 24 Mashobra Street for Lot 2.
