Imagine you’re researching a property’s history as part of a pending real estate transaction. You may need to ensure that all lands are included where multiple PINs make up one property. Map based searches are a naturally good fit.
Let’s say you’re searching a vacation property that doesn’t have road access, and therefore, no standard street address. How do you get the PIN?
Search the lot and concession in the township where you know the property is located based on a written description. That way you can narrow your search down to just a few properties.
Turn on the Teranet parcel layer to see the boundaries of any PINs. You can also turn on the high resolution aerial imagery to see some details of structures and cover that can help you if you have a written description about the land.
Use the query tool to see the PINs, legal descriptions and other details for the short-listed properties until you identify the one you’re after.
