Registrations

When completing a registration, legislation requirements that govern each registration must be followed. For complex registrations, it is advisable to consult a lawyer prior to registration to determine requirements and priorities. A secured party has the obligation to ensure there are sufficient grounds for registration and that the registration is made in good faith. It is your responsibility to make sure that all information on the form submitted
to New Urban Registry is accurate. A registration may be invalidated or its effect impaired by an error or omission that is considered to be seriously misleading. Seriously misleading information could mean that the registration would not be disclosed in a search result. Particular attention should be made in completing the description of debtor names and serial numbers. Personal Property Registry (“PPR”) captures, through an electronic registration process, information about the existence of security interest and summary information about the
persons and personal property affected by them. Documents, such as security agreements, support the registration but must remain with the secured parties.

PPR is not the place to register an interest in land. In Alberta, interests in land are registered at the Land Titles Office (LTO) located at 710 4 Ave. S.W. Calgary, Alberta.

How to Register your Interest

Most interests are registered by completing a financing statement and submitting it to us. We, then, register it in Alberta Personal Property Registry Electronic System.

We will check over the information that you submit. If the information is complete and acceptable for entry, it will be updated onto the Alberta Personal Property Registry Electronic System (APPRES) at which time a registration number will be generated and given to you.

It is your responsibility to make sure that the information on any forms you submit is accurate. Particular attention should be made in completing the description of debtor names and serial numbers.

When your interest is registered on APPRES, we will provide you with a verification statement confirming the registration information as it was recorded on APPRES. Check your verification statement carefully to make sure all information has been recorded accurately. The verification statement can be used to renew or discharge your
registration.

For registrations outside Alberta, please give us a call and we’ll provide you with the forms and prices as it varies from province to province.
