The Personal Property Securities (PPS) Register has replaced numerous existing asset registers across Australia, including the Register of Encumbered Vehicles (REVS).
The PPS Register can tell you whether or not a vehicle has a secured interest. A secured interest simply means that there could be money owing on the car or that the registered owner may not own the vehicle outright. If you buy a vehicle with a secured interest, action could be taken to repossess it, even though the debt is not yours. Completing a PPS Register check means you can confirm the important aspect before you make a purchase.
You can conduct a PPS Register enquiry online at www.ppsr.gov.au or by calling 1300 007 777.
