Current ownership name search report

What you need to begin a search

If you want to search for the ownership details of Western Australian properties using only a person’s name, it is important to note that Landgate applies specific legal requirements to your situation.

You can conduct a current ownership name search in one of two ways:

  1. Online: via Land Enquiry Services. To do this, you will need to have a MyLandgate account, with ‘Billing Account’ status, and log in to order the search online. (Note: this is not the same as ‘Registered Account’ status. If you have this, you will need to order in person.)
  2. In person: at our Midland or Perth offices. You will need to order the search here, and complete the 100-points of ID form required as part of the Name Suppression guidelines.

You can download a Name suppression application pack here.

The report gives you:

  • a list of all properties that currently contain the name searched as a proprietor which shows:
    • the parcel identifier
    • address
    • date of execution for the document that added the name.

What if I have property details other than a name?

If you have any other information to identify the location of the properties you wish to search for, such as full street address, parcel identifier or Certificate of Title volume and folio number, then it is not necessary to complete the 100-point ID verification or attend our offices in person.

You will be able to use these details to purchase copies online of the individual Certificates of Title via our Land Enquiry Services (LES) site. The Certificate of Title will then enable you to view more details about a property, including the current ownership details.
