What is a Title Search?

A property Title Search (or Certificate of Title) is a legal record that provides information about who the current owners are of a property or block of land. A Title Search is also useful in revealing if there are any restrictions or interests on the land, helping you make well informed property decisions with confidence. InfoTrackGO’s Title Search reports are easy to use and are available for all Australian states. Our property title searches include valuable information, such as:
  • Names of the property’s current owners
  • If there is a mortgage registered on the title
  • Any registered caveats for buyers to be aware of
  • Information about any kind of easement, restriction or covenant that might affect a property
With a property title search, you can also view if the property has any saleable interests, land restrictions and if there exists any lien on the property that needs to be paid off at closing.

Why do you need a Title Search?

There are several occasions when you may need to conduct a title search such as: buying or selling a property, proving ownership and refinancing your mortgage to name a few. The main purpose of conducting a title search is to ensure the owners of the land and property are the same as those listed on the certificate of title and that you are dealing with the correct people and property. A Title Search will also reveal if there are any easements, covenants, caveats and mortgages on the property, which are important to take note of as these may affect any plans you have in store for the property or land.

What does a Title Search cover?

Owners of the property

A title search will show who the current owners of the property are and whether they are a sole owner, multiple individuals or a company. It is important to confirm the owners on the Certificate of Title if purchasing a property so that you know the people selling it are legally entitled to do so.

Mortgages on the property

Your report will show if there is a mortgage on the property, in most circumstances a bank or financial institution holds the Certificate of Title as opposed to the property owner. As such, the institution providing the mortgage will be listed on the title search report for the property. If you are purchasing a property, it is important to confirm that the seller has discharged the mortgage before settlement so you do not face further delays.


An easement is a right given to another person (who does not own the property), to use the property for a specific purpose. For example, your property might include a service easement that allows city workers to access an electrical pole in your backyard. A right of way easement could allow your neighbour to cross your lawn to gain access to a road, or allow service workers to cross your land to access water, electricity and sewerage infrastructure. Easements can restrict your use of the land and prevent you from making changes to certain areas of your property. It’s important to be aware of any easements before you buy, sell or renovate.


Covenants are agreements and/or restrictions on the land or property and can be positive or negative. Covenants can be positive (requiring the property owner to do something) or negative (restricting the owner from doing certain things). An example of this can be as simple as what materials can be used to build & colours that can be used on the external of the property to retain the quality, look and feel of a building or neighbourhood. Breaching a covenant can have serious consequences so it is necessary to be aware of any covenants on your property.


A caveat is a sign that someone else has an interest in the property, other than the current owners or the mortgagee. A caveat serves as a warning that there may be unresolved issues in relation to the property or if there is money owed on the property. For example, if a builder has completed works on a property but is awaiting payment they may lodge a caveat on the title.

Property / Title Search FAQs

A Title Search is a current copy of the Certificate of Title which shows the current owner/s, the land description and any dealings associated that property owners need to be aware of. 

Most Title Searches will be available within a few minutes however in some instances, it can take up to 24 hours to receive your order as it is subject to Land Registry online availability.

A Certificate of Title, Title Search and a Deed Reference are all names used for what is known as a Title Search report. Although the names may be used interchangeably, the information included in these reports is the same.  

In some states of Australia, Title Searches are only available through authorised providers like InfoTrackGO. For example, in NSW, you are not able to obtain a Title Search through the NSW LRS. 

When you search with InfoTrackGO, we only require the property address to help complete your searches with ease. When searching with alternative third party search providers, these may require you to enter additional details including folio/volume number.  

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. 

A Title Search is one of the first steps in the property buying or selling process and is important to know the following:
  • To ascertain current owners
  • To see if there is a mortgage on the title
  • To show if there are any caveats registered on the title
  • To see if the property is affected by or appurtenant to any easements, restrictions or covenants
