The benefits of buying
a search through NLIS


Searches directly from NLIS are considered “official searches” because they are sourced directly from the official data provider and are part of a unique end-to-end contractual chain established and regulated by Land Data. This ensures that the statutory indemnities are preserved and transferred to users and the end customer. NLIS is the only government approved and regulated, electronic land and property searches portal in the market. NLIS offers speed and security, search results are returned through the network directly to the customer thus reducing risk and liability and at the same time protecting users, clients and data providers.
