The Personal Properties Securities Register, or PPSR for short, is an online registry. Discover whether a person, business, or items have any existing security interests by conducting a search. Millions of searches are conducted each year on property and people. These are fee based searches with price varying depending upon the type of request.

A range of searches are available and cover motor vehicles, watercraft, aircraft, artwork, intellectual property, and more. A general guide for items is that the PPSR is recommended if an item is over $5000 in value. The search does not cover property or buildings.

The PPSR is commonly used when you are making a purchase of valuable goods, for example when you buy a car. A check ensures that there are no other security interests in the vehicle. It is also utilised when providing credit and when you invest in a person or organisation.

A search may be conducted by serial number, for example a car VIN or a trade mark number. You may also search for an individual or company, PPSR registration number, or by point in time.

Q How much does it cost to search the PPSR?

At the time of writing (January 2019), the basic online search cost is $2, and through a service centre $7.
