Any time a caveat, judgment or builder’s lien is registered at land titles on someone’s title land titles mails a notice to the owner of the lands telling them this has happened. This notice is sent to the address for service we have in our records for the owner of the lands. Because this is the only notification that many people receive that something has been registered on their title, it is very important to keep your address for service up to date with the land titles office.
If you have not received such a notice, and you are still concerned, you may want to come into the land titles office and have the staff perform a search of your title. An up-to-date search of your title will show you all of the registered charges on your title. If a judgment, lien or caveat has been registered on your title, the title search will show this. If you are concerned about a builder’s lien, you should also ask the staff to help you to search the builders’ liens list and your certificate of title.
