  • The size and location of the property or land:
    • Usually in a land search, the land’s size is shown as a reference.
    • The location information of the property/land includes the state, district, town, and lot number. But it will not include the address of the property/land.
    • Please be aware that the title information differs significantly from the standard address we typically use (as shipping address)
    • If you only have an address and you wish to know the title details of the land, you may engage EasyLaw’s services to Extract Land Title Information.


  • The land’s specific purpose or usage:
    • Residential, agricultural, commercial, or industrial


  • The land’s status:
    • Freehold: The owner has complete control over the use and disposal of the land or other property.
    • Leasehold:  The freeholder is selling the owner a lease for the right to occupy the home for a specified period of time. The freeholder (or landlord) will continue to be the legal owner of the property and the land it is situated on, therefore the owner will not technically own the property outright.


  • The land’s tenancy (for leasehold only):
    • The length of the lease will be visible on the land search. Before buying any property or land, the buyer must verify the remaining lease term.


  • The land’s restriction of Interest:
    • This refers to any restrictions placed by the State Government on the registered property/land proprietor's ability to transfer his land, subdivide, partition, or amalgamate it, as well as any restrictions placed on his ability to deal with it through the establishment of a lease, charge, or easement and etc.


  • Any encumbrance(s) on the land:
    • There will be a transaction record of any charge or caveat on the land or property and its current status.
    • To find out more in-depth details regarding any specific caveat or other encumbrances on the property or land, EasyLaw can assist you to Extract the CTC ( Certified-True-Copy) of the Caveat or Encumbrances,
    • Usually, a normal land search will not show any outdated encumbrances


  • The details of the previous title:
    • As proof that the title has changed, usually, the previous title number is recorded in the land search. However, not all land searches will provide details about the past titles because it will depend on the respective land office.
