PROPERTY SALES DATA - Basic columns only

Hi everyone,

It is in the public interest to open access to the basic data attributes like property address, purchase price and date. This is not considered private. I understand that things like number of bedrooms, roof materials etc are all value-added columns which makes this a product which can be sold.

I am surprised to see WA Government sells this data. It goes against the Freedom of Information Act Freedom of Information - Landgate .

For reference, NSW released this for free about a year ago -

Again, this is only for public data owned by WA government. Not about valuation, not about value added data, but only the address, purchase price and date.

Thank you,

Thanks for your question Victor. We have passed the question on to the data custodian and we understand that they have responded to you directly.
