If you want full access to PPRS you will need to sign up for an ACOL client account. An account will provide you with one or more user IDs and passwords in order to login to PPRS. You can use an account to access the Nova Scotia PPR and all other ACOL PPRS jurisdictions.
If you do not have an account, you have three options:
- Use the Lien Check Service. Lien Check supports serial number searching only and requires a valid credit card.
- Pay a value-added service provider to access the PPR for you: find a value-added service provider to help you.
- Sign up for a NS Judgment Client Account: This account is for those who need to register a Notice of Judgment, Claim or Order in Nova Scotia.
- Go to a regional Nova Scotia Land Registration Office: find a Nova Scotia Land Registration Office. Note: the NS LROs are temporarily closed. For the most up-to-date information on office closures in Nova Scotia, please visit https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/.
Note: For local access at a Land Registration Office, registry staff will assign a temporary user ID and password. You will be required to complete a PPR Walk-In Client Access Application. If you intend to register notices in the PPR, you will be required to show two pieces of identification. Your temporary user ID will be assigned on a daily basis and will be revoked upon payment for your PPR transactions. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, or money order.
