What information can you get from a land search?

  • Owner's details:
    • The full name, IC number, and last registered address of the current landowner.


  • Title Type:
    • In the land office, the title type does not always indicate whether it is a Master title or a Strata title. The title type only lists the several title kinds that must be presented to each land office.
    • There are plenty of title types in Malaysia where some are old title types and will be given new title types by the land office over time.
      • Examples of title types: Geran (GRN), Pajakan Negeri (PN), Hakmilik Sementara Daftar (HSD), etc


  • Size and location:
    • The size of the land will normally be shown in the land search 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.


  • Purpose of the land:
    • This refers to how land is used, such as for agriculture, industry, commerce, or housing.


  • Status of the land:
    • Freehold: The owner is the permanent and absolute tenure of land or property with the freedom to dispose of it at will.
    • Leasehold: The owner is purchasing a lease from the freeholder for the right to live in the property for a set number of years. The owner won't technically own the property outright, the freeholder (or landlord) will continue to own the property and the ground it sits on.


  • Land tenancy (for leasehold only):
    • The land search will show the period of the lease. The buyer must check the remaining lease period before purchasing any property/land.


  • Restriction of Interest:
    • This refers to any limitation imposed by the State Government on the powers of the registered property/land proprietor on his land to subdivide, partition or amalgamate it, as well as the limitation on his powers to deal with it by way of transfer or the creation of a lease, charge, easement and etc.


  • Encumbrance(s):
    • It will reveal if there is any private caveat or charge on the property/land and if it is still valid.
    • The outdated encumbrances will not be shown in the normal land search
    • If you wish to know who entered the specific caveat or other encumbrances of the property or land, you may engage EasyLaw to help you Extract the CTC ( Certified-True-Copy) of the Caveat, so that you can get more information.


  • Previous Title Details:
    • The former title number is stored in this field as a confirmation that the title has changed. However, not all land searches will provide earlier title information, as this is dependent on the land office.
