Ontario Land Titles and You: Data is Power

By June 2, 2022No Comments

With knowledge comes power. When it comes to investigating real property, the accuracy of the data you are working with is paramount. Ontario Land Titles data is the only way to ensure that you are working with the most accurate and complete data available.  

Ontario Land Titles data is delivered through POLARIS (Province of Ontario Land Registration Information System). The data contained in POLARIS is the official land registration data of the Province of Ontario. Teranet uses this data in a wide range of value-added solutions geared to industries. In the case of the real estate industry, GeoWarehouse is Teranet’s delivery mechanism for Land Titles data that make it easier for real estate professionals to investigate the specific type of information needed to perform their tasks. 

The Land Titles data available in GeoWarehouse offers the most complete coverage, with 99% of Ontario’s land registry now being automated. GeoWarehouse provides you access to this data as it relates to the buying, selling and investigating of real property in Ontario.  

Land Titles data enables you to validate vital information like a property’s legal description and PIN, home ownership information, encumbrance data, easement data and more. It also enables you to estimate the value of a real property and generate comparable sales. 

This data is most accurate and complete because unlike other data sources it includes all information as registered in POLARIS: private and listed sales. The data also appears in the system as it is registered so enhanced searches and imagery available in the GeoWarehouse Store like Parcel Registers* and Instrument Images make the data available to you as soon as it is registered.
