Good Afternoon

How long ago did he pass? Do you know if probate was granted?

You can do historical searches with the Land Department in Victoria

https://www.propertyandlandtitles.vic.gov.au/land-titles/title-search

You are going to have to get details of the property such and the lot number and the plan number and also the Folio and Volume

Council may be able to give you this under Freedom of Information

Once you have that then you can undertake the historic search.

If his will was probated you can obtain a copy and that will also have the assets that he owned and the house would be listed if it was in his name. This can be obtained from the Supreme Court in Victoria.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon

Good Morning

As I have said you need to undertake the search with Vic Lands.

Here is the link to follow but you need to know the address

https://www.landata.vic.gov.au/

The probate of the will also will give you details of what they owned at the time of death and this has to be obtained from the Supreme Court of Victoria

I cannot give you anything more.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.
