Land Titles/Personal Property

Land ownership is a fundamental aspect of real estate, providing individuals with legal rights and interests in property. In Alberta, Canada, the system for recording and registering land ownership is known as the Land Titles System.

A land title is a legal document that proves ownership of a property. It contains important information such as the legal description, boundaries, encumbrances, and the name of the registered owner. Land titles serve as evidence of ownership and provide security and protection for property owners.

Land Title Searches

The majority of property records at the Land Titles Office are classified as public records and can be searched by anyone at any time. Titles identify the current owner and show all outstanding registered interests in the land, such as builders’ liens, caveats, easements and mortgages. To obtain a title search you must know the legal description, Land Identification Numeric Code (LINC number), or the title number for the property you want to search. Searches cannot be conducted based upon municipal addresses. Example of Civic address is: 1234 Side Street, Lethbridge, AB Example of Legal address is: Plan 1234 Block A Lot 1 For additional information Contact Astro Insurance.

These documents include information on all outstanding registered interests in the land, such as builders’ liens, caveats, easements and mortgages. For additional information Contact Astro Insurance.

If you have the legal address and you want to know who owned the property before the current owners we can provide a historical search. In fact Alberta properties can be searched all the way back to the original owners. For additional information Contact Astro Insurance.
