Title search

The title search produces a copy of a:

  • record of certificate of title
  • crown lease
  • land records
  • memorial book.

You may search for a title using a volume/folio (title reference). Where possible, a successful search may return details such as:

  • land description
  • registered proprietor
  • limitations, interests, encumbrances and notifications
  • previous title number
  • sketch of land reference
  • property street address
  • local government area
  • a copy of the sketch/plan (except for digital titles or strata plans).

What search criteria should I use for a title search?

You’ll need to enter a volume/folio (title reference). This is the unique identifier allocated to each title.

If needed, you can do a name or address search to retrieve the volume/folio. The format to enter a volume/folio should be:

  • volume number up to five digits
  • followed by a space, / or –
  • followed by a folio number up to five digits
  • optionally followed by the letter ‘a’ (this suffix must not be present for LR or CL formats).


  • CL579 1992
  • LR3099/591
  • 1159/79
  • 277/197a
  • 1502 599
  • 4-328a.
