What does a Title Search cover?​

What does a Title Search cover?


The main purpose of a property title is to inform you about the current owner of a piece of land. If there are multiple owners, a title will also tell you if they are either tenants in common or joint tenants. 

Tenants in common own a portion of the land and can sell their share or leave it to someone else in a legal Will. On the other hand, joint tenants own the property as a single unit – so if one passes away, the full ownership remains with the other joint tenant(s).


You can also find any potential easements on a property title. An easement is a right given to another person (someone who does not own the property) to use the property for a specific purpose. 

The two most common easements are for services and for right of way. Easements can restrict your use of the land and prevent you from building on top of it, so it’s important that you’re aware of them before you buy, sell or renovate.


By performing a property title search, you can also be aware of covenants. Covenants are guidelines and/or restrictions on the land that can limit what can be built on it, where specifically a property can be built and from what materials it may be built with. 

Covenants are created by the property developer to retain the quality, look and feel of a building or neighbourhood. These rules must be adhered to when altering a property to prevent serious consequences.


If you see a caveat on the title, it’s a sign that you may want to reconsider your purchase decision. The word caveat means “beware”, and is a legal notice lodged with the state land registry. It’s essentially a warning that someone else has an interest in the property. 

For example, a builder may put a caveat on a property if the owner owes them money – this will then alert anyone else looking at the certificate that the title is not “clear”


With a property title search, you can also check if there is an existing mortgage on the property. If there is, the bank holds the Certificate of Title rather than the property owner. 

When you’re buying a property, it’s important for the seller to discharge the mortgage before settlement to prevent any significant delay.
