When Should You Be Purchasing an RPTI?

Normally, an RPTI request is made when someone is looking to perform a complex research that needs many hours of research whether it's within JLR or the Quebec Land Register. 

For example, it can be a search for an acquistion title of a vacant land on a part of a lot that is now renovated, or, for the search of a title for a building held in joint possession.

This report always includes: 

  • Owner name(s)
  • The title of the acquisition like sale, transmission, cession, donation
  • The act of the load ( mortgage deed)
