Searching Notices

If you want to search for notices that identify a particular debtor or that include a particular motor vehicle serial number or serial number, or if you want to find a notice by its registration number, you must first login and then select the “Notice Search” menu option on the top navigation bar or select the “Search for notices…” option from the Home Page

There are three tiers of searches.
  • Tier 1: The Basic Search, is free and will display notice type, notice registration number and date/time, lapse date, debtor type, debtor name and company number (if applicable), secured creditor name, email and address, and collateral type.
  • Tier 2: Expanded Search has a fee of JMD 1000, if your account has registered fewer than 4 notices using your account. The fee is waived if your account has registered 4 or more notices. Expanded search results will show debtor address, amount of principal indebtedness, collateral information, and other information, in addition to the information reflected on the basic search results.
  • Tier 3: The Certified Search has a fee of JMD 1000. This fee is not waived based on the number of notices your account has registered. The certified search shows the same information as the expanded search results. However, if you request a certified search report, the results of the search will include certification language and the Signature of the Registrar. It will also include a unique number for the certified search report that can be used to retrieve the report from the Registry database if needed later. The certified search report is an official record of the National Security Interests in Personal Property Registry, and you can use the printed report as evidence of the state of the record on the date of the certified report. The certified report issued by the Registrar shall be admissible in evidence in any court without further evidence of its authenticity. Certification takes place electronically, by the Seal/Signature of the Registrar being electrically affixed, which is recognized by the court.

Whether or not you are logged in, the search screen includes tabs for the different types of search criteria from which you may select.
  • If you know the registration number of the initial notice, select the Registration Number tab, enter the registration number in the displayed registration number field and click the Submit button.
  • If you are searching for notices that name a particular debtor, click the Debtor tab.
    • In the Debtor tab, select the type of debtor on which you want to search.
    • If the debtor is an individual, enter the individual’s full legal last name and click the Submit button.
    • For Individual - Jamaican Citizens, you may also enter the TRN, but the Last Name will still be required.
    • If the debtor is a company, enter the company’s full legal name exactly as it appears on its incorporation or registration documents and click the Submit button.
  • If you are searching for notices that include a particular serial number individually entered into the proper fields on the collateral description page, click the Motor Vehicle Serial/VIN tab. Select the type of number for which you wish to search. Enter the number in the displayed field and click the Submit button.

When the search is submitted, the system will identify all matching notices and display information for each notice in registration number sequence, with all change notices for each initial notice following the initial notice to which they are related.
