This research is generally time consuming requiring visits to repositories such as Queensland State Archives, John Oxley Library and BCC Archives and land tenure searches.

         LAND TENURE
Cost of documents and $110.00 an hour or part thereof.
If land tenure is from alienation from the Crown to the present day, this can involve obtaining from three (3) to nine (9) or more documents, the average is five (5). Land tenure for a home usually takes less than 3 hours but for a business, church, industry or precinct it takes much more time.

Short house history cost from $500.00
     Full house histories can take several days as they involve land tenure and Post Office Directory searches and visits to repositories such as John Oxley Library and BCC Archives.
