Shawnessy Registry

Before buying personal property or accepting personal property as collateral for a loan, you should always do a personal property search to ensure the property is free and clear of any liens. This protects the rights of buyers and creditors. In the event that there is a lien registered against the property, the person requesting the search should contact the secured party or creditor for more information.
