Anyone can access historical land information through the South Australian Integrated Land Information System (SAILIS).
Land Services SA staff are unable to conduct historical searches on your behalf however Video tutorials have been created to assist those wishing to undertake historical searching. You are encouraged to view these videos before starting your search.
You can search the history of a block of land and research family history through the register book. It contains certificates of title and other information about property. Some searches are free, but others may attract a fee.
There are some applications made with Land Services SA which may require you to conduct historical searching in order to complete your application. These include applications made under Part 4 and Part 7A of the Real Property Act 1886 (SA). These Applications are normally quite technical in nature and would generally require the professional assistance of a legal practitioner or conveyancer.
