Liens

Writs of Seizure and Sale

Sometimes called an Execution search. A Writ of Seizure and Sale is the document that allows the enforcement of a judgement or order of a court to obtain actual possession of property for the purpose of satisfying a judgement. In the province of Ontario, these are filed in the Sheriff's office. Each judicial district has its own Sheriff. Turnaround time usually 2 business days.

Real Property Searches

A sub-search provides details of recent transactions involving real property. These transactions include transfers, mortgages, deposits, certificates of pending litigation etc. A sub search does not provide enough information to determine the quality of the title.

Property sub-searches are available throughout Canada. Costs vary. Turnaround time 2-5 business days.
