The accuracy of every title is guaranteed by the government under the Torrens System of land registration. Titles identify the current owner and show all outstanding registered interests in the land, such as mortgages, caveats, easements and builders' liens. To obtain a title search you must know the legal description, Land Identification Number Code, (LINC number) or the title number for the property you want to search. Generally, a title can not be searched by municipal address, however some registry agents have the ability to search by address.
Certified title searches are available through the Alberta Registries Spatial Information (SPIN 2) System or the Registry Agent Network. Consult your Yellow Pages directory or call 310-0000, then dial 780-427-7013 to locate a Registry Agent in your area.
