These records detail the chain of ownership of a property by means of plan and lot number. The date of each change of ownership can be determined but the existence of any specific building is not shown.

Land registration records are found in the land registry office on the 4th floor of the Ellen Fairclough Building, 119 King Street West, Hamilton, ON.

To use these records efficiently you must have the Plan and Lot Number of the property. Plan and Lot number can be obtained from the current tax assessment records in the City Clerk's Office.
