Searching Tips 

Keywords

Think carefully about the keywords you enter into the search. The keywords should be as specific as possible; e.g.  a search for a general term such as registration or certificate will give so many results that it may be difficult to find what you want. Use a keyword that relates specifically to your search; e.g. leases, burdens, vesting certificate.

Use more that one keyword; e.g. a search for death of joint owner or death of registered owner will provide more useful results that the single search word death.

Again a search for vesting certificate will provide more useful results than the single search word vesting.

 

Exact Phrase:

If you wish to search for an exact phrase, use inverted commas; e.g., a search against “electronic conveyancing” returns 22 results, but a search for the same phrase without using the commas i.e. electronic conveyancing returns 41 results.

Excluded Words

Use the minus symbol to exclude certain words; e.g. conveyancing –electronic. This will search for all pages with the word conveyancing but will exclude pages that also contain the word electronic.
