To enable you to conduct a successful land search, you are required to have the full title detail. Unfortunately, the property’s postal address cannot be use to conduct land search nor a reverse search by using someone’s name and NRIC No. to search for any property registered to the individual.


Where to obtain full title details:-

  • Individual or Strata title deed
  • Quit Rent bill (applicable to landed property or Selangor strata property)
  • Sale & Purchase Agreement (the title detail may be invalid if the property is acquired many years before, therefore it is best to check with the Developer or building management)
