To search a land record is to inspect and/or obtain a copy of the land record. Depending on the mode in which the record concerned is kept, a search produces :
1. Land RegisterA computer printout in A4 size containing the information in the Land Register of the property concerned.
2. Land DocumentAn imaged copy.
3. Land Record in Paper Form
- The paper record for inspection and copying, if required.
In addition to the Land Register, customers are also advised to check the Unposted Memorial List by using the Integrated Registration Information System (IRIS) Online Services via the Internet or the self-service terminals installed at the Customer Centre and the NTSOs to find out if there are any instruments lodged for registration but for one reason or another, entries of the same have not yet been made in the Land Register.
