Lexis WinDeed saves time and money by providing the ability to request an electronic copy of many documents lodged at the Deeds Office as part of the property registration process.
Deeds Office document copies that have been microfilmed or scanned can be requested from a Deeds Office search result. Requested documents which have been scanned will be made available for download immediately.
- Select ‘Request’ to initiate the process. A confirmation dialog will appear.
- Confirm the request by selecting ‘I accept’ on the confirmation.
Document back order option when the Deeds Office is unavailable for processing/delivery document copies
When the Deeds Office document copy functionality is offline at the time of your request, you have the option to put your document on ‘backorder’ until a given date/time (which will be noted on the user interface). We’ll monitor the service and if the Deeds Office is available again during that time, we’ll deliver your document automatically (when available).

A text version of the document is also available through Lexis WinDeed. The text version makes it easier for you to “copy and paste” extracts from a title deed into a new document.
The text version can be requested after the Deeds Office Document Copy is available for download. Go to the Documents tab on www.windeedsearch.co.za and click Request link for that specific document in the Text Copy column.
