PPSR (Personal Property Securities Register) Search

On 30 January 2012, all personal property security interests in Australia made the transition to a single national register known as the Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR). The PPSR is a national online register that can provide information to help limit your risk when buying personal property.

InfoTrack is a licensed Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) broker. As such, InfoTrack offers you the ability to perform a PPSR Search with ease. InfoTrack’s PPSR Search tool provides a simple way to search for interests in personal property other than land or buildings such as: Organisational Grantor, Individual Grantor, Serial Number, Registration or Ordinal searches.

PPSR End of Transitional Period

The final transitional period provided under the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) (PPSA) is coming to a close. This ‘period of grace’ provided time for users to update migrated registrations to meet the requirements of the PPSR. The transition period ends on 30 January 2017 for registrations that were migrated without an end date.
