Property Search FAQ
A title search will provide you with a copy of the Certificate of Title/Title Deed of that property.
A Certificate of Title (also known as a Deed) is an official land ownership record. It determines who owns that piece of land.
A Title Search will provide a copy of the Certificate of Title. This document will include information, including the owner (be it a person or other entity such as a bank or corporation), a description of the land, and a list of current dealings on the property such as mortgages, caveats, covenants, and easements.
The main reason why a title search would be necessary is to ensure there are no reasons why the title cannot be transferred from the current owner to the purchaser.
The vendor will disclose a copy of the title search in the contract, the purchaser (or their representative) will then ensure a Final search is ordered on the day of settlement to ensure there are no additional dealings registered on title prior to the property being transferred in their name.
Property titles are listed under the property’s specific Lot and Plan number. This makes it easier for government authorities to know exactly what piece of land is being referenced when a transition of ownership occurs, as some properties can have multiple different street addresses.
As of July 2016, the NSWLRS online shop no longer offers you the ability to purchase property information. As such, you will have to go through a provider like InfoTrackgo.
A deed reference is the same as a Land Title, it shows who owns a piece of property and can include any covenants, easements or mortgages on the property.
The Title Search includes the current owner of the property, the land description, the restrictions on the use of land, any covenants, easements and other equitable servitudes, any mortgages on title, any caveats that may be registered and the document by which the owner came to be on title.
The title search will advise if the seller has a saleable interest in the property, whether there are any restrictions on the use of the land and if any liens exist on the property which need to be paid off at closing.
- To ascertain current owners
- To see if there is a mortgage registered on title
- To see if any caveats have been registered on title
- To see if the property is affected by or appurtenant to any easements, restrictions or covenants
Title searches will advise if the seller has a saleable interest in the property, whether there are any restrictions on the use of the land and if any liens exist on the property which need to be paid off at closing. Other land title searches include:
- Historical Searches: to search the chain of events registered on a parcel of land
- Street address searches: to ascertain title reference from Street address
- Owner name searches: to find which properties are owned by individuals
Most titles are instant searches and are emailed to you within 60 minutes
