Can these timeframes be changed?
We do appreciate that undertaking your searches prior to purchase can be a busy time. It is our aim to help you to make this process as streamlined as possible. However, due to the high volumes of searches we process, we are regrettably unable to accelerate any request outside of these timeframes and we do not provide a fast track service at this time.
To ensure that you receive your search results within your desired timeframes, with enough time to discuss with us any questions you may have, we encourage you to allow at least 3 business days in addition to Council's processing time when negotiating your contract timeframes.
Lodging the application
The application may be lodged and paid via any of the methods listed below.
- Online (electronically) via Registered Users. For online lodgement, please do not complete one of the above mentioned forms. You will be prompted for the relevant details online. Payment is required as a part of the transaction, using a credit card;
- Via email to Council@logan.qld.gov.au. A Council Officer will phone you for your payment via credit card;
- By post to Logan City Council, PO Box 3226, Logan Central, QLD 4114. Payment can be made via cheque, money order or credit card (a Council Officer will phone you for your payment details);
- In person at one of Council's customer service centres located at Logan Central, Jimboomba or Beenleigh. Payment can be made in cash, via cheque, money order or using EFTPOS.
Please note: processing of the application will take place after payment is successfully received.
If you order a full planning and development certificate or building and plumbing inspection report, please be aware that Council will need you to organise access to the property in advance, in order for a staff member to carry out the necessary inspection. So we can supply the search results within our standard processing timeframes, we ask that you arrange for access to the land within five business days of Council starting the search.
