What is a Title Search?
A land title search is a current copy of the Certificate of Title which shows the current owner, the land description and any dealings associated.
The land register is the central aspect of the Torrens system and search facilities are provided by state and territory land titles registries. The Registrar records property ownership changes, mortgages, property transactions and new subdivisions and protects the security of property ownership through the State Government guarantee to title.
Property Registry has access to these land registries and gives you online access. Whether you are a property owner, investor, real estate agent, conveyancer or solicitor. We offer a land title search online via email. Pay as you go or set up an account for regular or bulk searches.

What is the difference between a properties Deed and Title?
Property Deeds and Titles refer to two separate legal concepts.
All original Property deeds are archived at each states or territories land registry. Land registries now only issue an electronic copy of the certificate of title, also known as a land title search. A Title is a legal way of saying you own a right to something. For real estate purposes, the title refers to ownership of the property, meaning that you have the rights to use that property.
Why do I need a copy of my title?
Titles and property certificates provide information about the land and are most commonly used for conveyancing or other research purposes. Conducting a property title search also gives you peace of mind knowing that you are the rightful owner of your property.
