How do I find out who owns a property NZ

Answered By: Philip Davis Date: created: Jun 22 2023

Local councils – Local councils have publicly available Rating Information Databases (RIDs). These databases hold rating information about addresses – including property owner details. Anyone can visit the council offices and find out the owner and postal details for a specific property.

This information is also available on websites such as Quotable Value New Zealand (QVNZ), where for a small fee anyone can request property ownership details by querying a specific address. If you own (or are the rate payer for) more than one property, you will need to approach all the councils for all the properties.

Some RIDs are online, but these do not usually give access to owner’s details and postal addresses. To keep your details confidential on a RID:

Go to your local council’s website and check to see if they have a link to the RID database (usually found somewhere in the rates section and may also be called ‘property search’). Do a query on your property and fill in and submit the section on non-disclosure and confidentiality of your name and postal details, or submit online the withholding details form, or Go to your council office and make a direct application to the council for non-disclosure and confidentiality of your name and postal details on the RID database.

What is proof of property ownership NZ

Answered By: Aaron Diaz Date: created: Jan 01 2024

Records of title (previously referred to as computer registers or certificates of title) prove the ownership of land and the rights and restrictions that apply to the land. They have been recorded electronically since 2002. All earlier paper-based Certificates of Title were converted into electronic records of title between 1999 and 2002.

You can request a copy of a record of title in these forms: current record of title Shows the current owner/s, legal description, registered rights and restrictions, eg a mortgage. Includes a plan or diagram of the land. historic record of title Shows all interests that have been registered against the current title since this title was created.

This may include a plan or diagram of the land, and/or a scan of any paper Certificates of Title issued.

Are property records public in Ireland?

Registry of Deeds – The Registry of Deeds was established in 1707 to provide a system of voluntary registration for deeds and conveyances affecting land and to give priority to registered deeds over unregistered registerable deeds. There is no statutory requirement to register a document but failure to do so may result in a loss of priority.

  1. The effect of registration is generally to govern priorities between documents dealing with the same piece of land.
  2. The Registry of Deeds currently operates under the provisions of part 3 of the Registration of Deeds and Title Act 2006 and the Registration of Deeds Rules 2008 which came into effect on 1 May 2008.

The primary function of the Registry of Deeds is to provide a system of recording the existence of deeds and conveyances affecting unregistered property. When a Deed is lodged in the Registry of Deeds it must be accompanied by the relevant ROD Application Form (as prescribed by the Registration of Deeds Rules 2008).

This ROD Application Form replaced the Memorial which is a summary of the relevant details of the original Deed. It should be noted that the Registry of Deeds does not guarantee the effectiveness of a Deed nor does it interpret a Deed, but only records the existence of the Deed. The ROD Application Form contains the date of the deed, details of the parties to the deed and a description of the property affected by the deed.

Each application is given a serial number in order of the date and time of lodgement and the priority given to registered documents is based on the serial number allocated. When the application is completed, the original Deed is not filed in the Registry but is returned to the lodging party.

Maps are not held as part of the registration record. The ROD Application Form (formerly the Memorial) is filed as a record in the Registry of Deeds. As the Register of Deeds is a public Register any person may, on payment of the prescribed fee, carry out a Search to discover the existence of deeds affecting a piece of property filed there.

However, a search in the Registry of Deeds will disclose only whether documents have been executed dealing with the land in question – to discover the effect of these documents, the documents themselves (which are not retained by the Registry of Deeds) will have to be examined.
