The Australian Commonwealth Government introduced a reform that brought several Commonwealth, State and Territory laws and Registers regarding Personal Property Security Interests under one National System.
On Monday January 30 2012, one National Personal Properties Securities law and one National Personal Properties Security Register (PPSR) was introduced. Consequently a number of existing Government Security Registers including the State based REVs/VRS registers and VCheck Service was closed.
On Monday January 30, 2012 - one single PPSR Certificate replaced all REVS and VCheck Certificates.
The single PPSR Certificate confirms:
One single PPSR Certificate offers a purchaser of a second-hand vehicle, a quick and easy way to obtain important vehicle information prior to purchase. The release of this information to the general public and the motor vehicle industry allows the consumer to take a proactive role in the deterrence of vehicle theft and fraud and make a more informed decision about your purchase.
The PPSR Certificate enables the purchaser to verify if the vehicle they are purchasing has a stolen status recorded against it. The PPSR Certificate also displays if there is a repairable or statutory write off recorded.
The PPSR Certificate may also detail the type of damage sustained (eg. Fire, water damage), plus the date and state where the vehicle was written off.
By purchasing a clear PPSR Certificate (formerly known as a Security Interest Certificate, Vehicle Security Register Certificate, VSR or Clear Title Certificates) on the day you are purchasing a Used Car, Truck, Caravan, Campervan, Trailer, Bus, Motor Cycle, Boat, or a Jetski you are protected against repossession.
PPSR Certificates are available for registered vehicles Australia wide.
