If you want to know who owned the property before the current owners, you can request a historical search from either Land Titles office. Several types of information may be required to locate an historical title such as reference title numbers, owner's name, and legal description. Some historical titles are available on the Alberta Land Titles Automation (ALTA) system while some are on microfilm, or microfiche, depending on when the titles were cancelled.
Historical title searches may be ordered through the Alberta Registries Spatial Infomation (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.
