Notes:

The “Golden Rule” of Deeds Office Person searching is “Less is More”. The Deeds Office has a very specific way of capturing data and it may be registered in a different manner to what is expected. It is recommended to put in the least amount of information available and allow WinDeed to provide a list of possible matches. For assistance in searching to maximise a successful search result, please contact the WinDeed Support Team at 0861 WINDEED.

The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform charges for every query to their database. This includes searches with the result of “Not Found” since in many cases, “Not Found” is a meaningful search result.
