Affected land or property

A person can make a property enquiry to VicRoads, requesting advice on whether a property is affected by an approved proposal.

For relating to the transport projects and how it may affect you, please call 1800 800 007.

Vendor's statement

Section 32 of the Sale of Land Act 1962 requires an owner proposing to sell land to give a Vendor's Statement to a prospective purchaser and include that Statement with any subsequent contract for the sale of the land. In addition to other details and information, the Vendors Statement is required to include information as to whether VicRoads (the Roads Corporation) has any approved proposals for works requiring the purchase or compulsory acquisition of land.
