LAND TITLE SEARCHES IN CALGARY
LAND TITLE SEARCHES
We can assist you with land title searches, including a certified copy of the title or a historical title. To determine your specific needs, please read the descriptions below:
Certified Copy of Title: A search to locate a certified copy of the title will show all outstanding registered interests in the land. These interests may include current owners, mortgages, easements, caveats, and builder’s liens. To perform a certified copy of a title search, a legal description, land identification number code (LINC), or title number is required.
Historical Titles: A historical title search will show who owned the property prior to the current owner. Searching for a historical title may require the name of the previous property owner(s), legal description, as well as a reference title number. Depending on the parameters of the search, digitized results may be immediate, while searches that involve microfilm records may take longer.
Registry @ South Trail Crossing is not only limited to land title searches, but we also cater to a variety of other services that go beyond this.
OBTAIN ALBERTA LAND TITLES INFORMATION

COPY OF DOCUMENTS
Either by a visit to our office or by email, you may request copies of title documents. Please keep in mind that our staff members don’t change or amend a land title; we only provide materials relevant to your search. The types of document copies we can supply are:
Registered Copies: A registered title copy is a direct facsimile of an original land title. These copies will show information on right of ways, city easements, mortgages, and caveats.
Survey Plan Copies: You may order copies of registered survey plans through our office. You will need a legal description or the plan and unit number.
COPY OF PLANS
Prints of registered plans can be obtained through our office. To obtain a copy of the plans, you will need the plan and unit numbers or the plan, block, and lot numbers. Plan copies are provided on large paper and produced by the land titles office. As this service requires delivery from the land titles office, your copy of plans request may take 24 to 72 to fulfill.
You can request a service mentioned above by visiting our office or speaking with one of our representatives by phone.
WHAT IS A LAND TITLE SEARCH?
A title is a collection of rights for real estate. Following this, a title search includes ascertaining details of the said rights and the person exercising them. A title search assists a buyer and a mortgage lender in establishing the appropriateness and ownership of a concerned property. This search helps prove that the seller has the capacity to sell the property and prevents legal issues in the future. It includes deeds and mortgages, tax, marriage, and probate records, or another relevant document that might influence the title of the property.
Hence, a land title search provides you with information on land titles. You can either use the land title number or the legal land description while inputting your search request. These include:
Land Identification Number Code (LINC), or
The Title Number for the Property, or
Legal Land Description: Can Be Found Using the Street Address

TYPES OF LAND TITLE SEARCHES
You can narrow down your land title search based on the different purposes each of them serves. Listed below are the types of land title searches:
Current title: The title lists the present-day owner(s) and the latest information related to a piece of land. It also includes all outstanding registered interests in the property, such as mortgages, caveats, city easements and builders’ liens.
Document retrieval: You could retrieve certified copies of land title information using the document number if the document was registered after 1973. For documents registered before 1973, you will have to file a request.
Historical search: To retrieve this, you need to submit reference title numbers, the legal description and the owner’s name. It offers information about a particular land title registrant or a specific date.
