About PPSR

Protecting Consumers and Businesses across Australia

The Personal Properties Securities Register (PPSR). It is a government-maintained register that is accessible across Australia. Having replaced REVS Check, it is now the online tool to help you protect your personal property whether you’re a buyer or a seller.

What is PPSR Search?

The PPSR is accessible 24/7. It is used for a variety of reasons all for making business easier. This includes businesses, lenders, and consumers using the PPSR to register security interests in personal property like cars. PPSR search is therefore an online facility that allows users to check the details on the registered property across Australia.

The results generated from the search will let you know if the vehicle is:

  • Free from debt and cannot be repossessed because of unpaid loans by the previous owner
  • Not reported stolen in any state/province
  • Not reported with unrepairable write-offs

Who Uses the PPSR?

The PPSR is used by Consumers who purchase second-hand goods like used cars to ensure that the property does not have any financial encumbrance.

Businesses use PPSR search to offer personal property on consignment, hire purchase, credit, or retention of title arrangements.

Financial entities such as banks use the register to register loans as security interest or to check on potential customers.

When Should I run a PPSR Check

Before you pay for a used car, especially if you’re buying from a private seller, run a PPSR check. You should check the register before you hand over any money to the seller.

How Can I Run a PPSR Search?

Searching the PPSR is simple. You can check the details of registered personal property – especially vehicles – by using a VIN number or a Rego number.

What you will need:
  • The VIN/Rego Number of the car
