Searching the Saskatchewan Personal Property Registry (SPPR) for outstanding interests (liens) against moveable forms of personal property can help protect you from buying someone else’s debt.
When buying moveable forms of property, most people don’t check to see if there are any liens registered against it. Buying the item anyway means they may be purchasing the previous owner's legal obligations as well. If the old debt stays unpaid, a creditor or secured party may seize the property out from under you!
You can help prevent this by searching the Saskatchewan Personal Property Registry before you make your purchase. It’s quick and easy to do - the registry is available for you to search online 24/7.
