  • If you do not have the property's nine-digit Parcel Identifier number (PID), we can perform a title search using the municipal address for an additional fee of $10.

Details of the registered charges such as Mortgages, Easements and Builder's Liens are not included with a title search but copies of supporting documentation can be ordered separately.

Results will be delivered after payment of invoices are completed.

What is a Land Title Search?

A Land Title Search is a way of looking up information about a specific property. This involves checking records at a local office to find out who owns the property, what it's like, and if there are any debts or legal issues attached to it. People usually do a Land Title Search when they want to buy a property or need to know its value and risks.

Rezoning or Building Permits

When it comes to rezoning or building permit applications, municipalities are sticklers for detail. That's why a current title search is often required before such applications can even be considered. But that's not all - depending on the type of application, the City may also require other legal documents, like subdivision plans or registered copies of important documents. It might seem like a hassle, but all these requirements are in place to ensure that everything is above board and that the project is in line with all legal and zoning regulations. So, if you're planning on building or rezoning in a particular area, make sure to do your research and gather all the necessary documents to make the process as smooth as possible.

Historical Land Titles

Historical titles can be searched if you want to know who owned a property before the current owners or to follow a property's chain of history as recorded in the land title office. Historical title searches can be requested back to a particular date in time, family name or back to the very first fee simple grant from the crown.

If you require an historical title for a certain date or family name and there have been several changes in ownership between the current owners and the title you are searching, each title will have to be obtained until the particular date or family name is found.

There are three main registry databases when searching for native land titles.

They are:

First Nation Land Registery System (FNLRS)

Indian Lands Registry System (ILRS)

Self-Government First Nations Lands Registry (SGFNLR)

The reports that are generated are called parcel abstract reports. They include information on the property's legal description and PIN number, instruments registered against the PIN number, and will identify the Grantors and Grantees. Parcel abstract reports can be ordered by PIN number, Lot and Plan numbers or by the names of the Grantee(s). It is also important to know which Land Registry system contains the record for the property.
