A Melaka Land Search (Carian Tanah) is usually conducted to verify the latest title details, land usage, information of the owner, and any transactions regarding the property.
Melaka has 3 types of land search:
Private Land Search (Carian Persendirian)
A printout in black and white that contains all of the relevant land office's title information.
Official Land Search (Carian Rasmi)
A printout in black and white, produced by the relevant land office, providing the full description of the property or plot of land, and bearing the signature and stamp of the Land Registrar on the last page, which is used as part of supporting documentation for submission to a government agency.
Certified True Copy of Title (Salinan Sah Hakmilik)
A duplicate of the original title that has been officially attested as being accurate by the land registrar. Not to be substituted for the presentation's original title.

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.
Usually, a normal land search will not show any outdated encumbrances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.
