The Deeds Office Sequestration search advises of a sequestration document registered at the Deeds Office. Many conveyancers find it an invaluable step in the property registration process to check the Deeds Office for a sequestration just before lodging to prevent a delay or rejection.
- Select ‘Deeds Office Sequestration’ under the ‘Person’ offering on the search Menu.
- Supply required search criteria and select ‘Search’.
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 Lexis WinDeed to provide a list of possible matches. For assistance in searching to maximise a successful search result, please contact the Lexis 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.
