VIC | What is an Instrument Search?

An Instrument is a document that has been lodged at the Land Registry and has been processed and registered on a Certificate of Title. An Instrument Search will result in an imaged copy of the relevant Instrument. Examples include Transfers of Land, Mortgages, Caveats, Plans of Subdivisions, Covenants, etc. Any of these documents may be lodged as a Dealing; they become Instruments once they are actually registered.
