Are you ready for the PPSR?

About the PPSR

The Personal Property and Securities Register (PPSR), is a single, national online register that will allow lenders and businesses to protect their security interests in personal property by registration.

Secured parties, buyers, and other interested parties involved in personal property security transactions will also be able to use the PPSR to search for security interests in personal property.

The PPSR will provide businesses and individuals with access to a single source of information about security interests in personal property and will mean significant reductions in the cost of searching and registering security interests.

About personal property

Personal property is anything that is capable of being owned (other than land or fixtures). Personal property may be tangible, such as cars, boats, machinery and livestock, or intangible, such as intellectual property and contract rights.

About security interests

A security interest is a legal interest in personal property that is created by any transaction that secures the payment or performance of an obligation. An example of a security interest is a fixed and floating charge over a company or a retention of title agreement.

About secured parties

A secured party can be an individual, a company, or another entity that has interest in a grantor’s collateral.

About collateral

Collateral is the personal property to which a security interest attaches.

When will the PPSR will be available?

The PPSR will be available from 10 October 2011.

About existing registers

The PPSR will replace most existing Commonwealth, State and Territory personal property security registers. Security interests recorded on existing registers will be moved to the PPSR to avoid the need to re-register interests in new system.

Does it cost money to search or register on the PPSR?

Yes, there will be a fee to search or register a security interest on the PPSR. The Government has advised that it will make information about the fees and pricing available nearer to the start date.

How do I register or perform a search on the PPSR?

Peter Atkinson & Company is ready to make the transition to the new PPSR easy for its customers by integrating PPSR registrations and searches into our existing online searching portal.

It is expected that most of those that remain closed will slowly reopen towards the end of the week.

Brisbane Flood Disaster

All of us here in SEQ have been impacted by the flood in one way or another, and our thoughts are with our family, friends and clients who have been directly affected by the floods.

We’re pleased to be able to get back to work on Monday 17 January and help our clients move forward and get back to a semblance of normality, at least so far as business goes.

Some buildings remain closed in the CBD, notably the Titles Office according to information available as at 7.30 pm Sunday, so searching and lodging services will remain interrupted in the short term.

As we learn more on Monday, we’ll keep you up-to-date.

Brisbane Flood Closure

Unfortunately, we won’t be able return to our CBD office until waters have receded and services to the CBD have been restored.

Again, we apologise for this disruption to our services.

Emergency Closure
