Land Titles is a parcel based registration system which utilizes a Parcel Identifier (PID) to uniquely identify parcels of land and to record interests in that land. Unlike the Registry System, which has existed in New Brunswick for over 200 years, once parcels have been converted to Land Titles as "registered land", the interests of individuals and enterprises in a parcel are guaranteed by the province.


SNB Land Registry offices are accessible to the public and an access fee is applicable to search the instruments on file.


A Certificate of Registered Ownership (a snapshot of the title answering the questions: Where is it? Who owns it? What are the charges against it?) is issued for each registered parcel every time a change occurs (for example, by transfer or mortgage), so that the title register always shows the current state of the title without any further investigation
