Frequently asked questions
What is PPSR?
The Personal Property Securities Register (PPSR) is a comprehensive database managed by the Government of Australia that lists personal properties ? such as vehicles ? that people have a security interest in (aka owe money on/for).
The PPSR is therefore a collection of properties that are personally owned and have been used by owners as security to obtain loans. Only properties that have been listed under the PPSR can be found with a PPSR check. These properties do not extend to land used as security. The most common properties listed under the PPS Register are cars, boats, trucks, artwork, and machinery. Buyers who are interested in these properties can trace the financial history/encumbrance owing on them and use the results to make decisions with regard to purchasing that property.
What is REVS?
REVS stands for the Register of Encumbered Vehicles. This was the Australian government registry that came before the PPSR. Unlike the PPSR which is a database that contains the financial records of all personal properties registered with the PPSR, the REVS had detailed the security interest status of only cars and other vehicles. It did not extend to boats and machines. Until the formation of the PPSR in 2012, the REVS was the only registry to deal with finance owing on cars.
What is a VIN?
A Vehicle Identification Number or VIN is a unique 17-digit code that identifies a vehicle. The VIN is the identification number used to pick out cars for administrative purposes. Unlike the registration number (number plate), the VIN of a vehicle does not change. The VIN is unique to a specific car and is located in different areas depending on the make and model of the car. Car owner manuals will tell/show owners where to look to find the VIN like the dashboard, door, etc. The VIN is also one of the main methods of running a car history check.
Do I need PPSR Check before buying a car?
If you are buying a used car, then yes, you most definitely need to get this check done. A PPSR check will let you know if there is money owing against the vehicle. The same goes if you want to buy other personal property such as intellectual rights, boats, artwork, stocks, machines, and even livestock. Knowing the encumbrance on a property will help you make the decision on whether you are going to buy it or not. Personal property with finance owing comes with a higher risk compared to properties that do not have any encumbrance and therefore no risk of repossession by a lender.
Coupled with the information from NEVDIS, your car history report with PPSR certificate is the one stop document that helps you make informed decisions.
Quick Reads on the QuickPPSR
Is the PPSR Right For You? Who is the PPSR for?
The PPSR is used by both lenders and buyers to check the financial encumbrance history of personal property like that second-hand car you want to buy. So, how do you know if it is right for you and who it is for?
PPSR for Private Car Buyers & Sellers
As a private buyer, you may be apprehensive about buying a used car and not knowing its full history. So, run a check while you're discussing the details with the seller then and there. Within seconds, both of you can be negotiating based on the actual facts as recorded by the government.
PPSR for Used Car Dealers
As a used car dealer, you are more than likely used to doing trade-ins when a buyer wants to upgrade or downgrade their vehicles. But, you have to protect yourself so that you aren't duped. That's where the results from this online search become essential. Even though it's a trade in, you need to be able to verify the vehicle details so that an eventual buyer doesn't end up thinking you're the one trying to dupe them and ruin your reputation.
On the other hand, offering reports to used car buyers can help you close the sale. Simply run a check while they wait and hand them the results in seconds to show you are serious about providing them with accurate information.
PPSR for Financial Institutions
Has someone pledged to use their vehicle as security for a loan? But what happens if they default and someone claims prior access to the car for recovery of debts? Issues like this can be easily avoided with just by running a check.
Before you lend, you can determine if the vehicle is already encumbered and for how much. Then, if you're willing to still lend based on how much ? if any ? registered on the car, you can then register your secured interest on that vehicle in the government database.
Understanding Your PPSR Report. What you Need to Look For
Every car history check done with QuickPPSR comes with an official PPSR certificate from the AFSA and an easy-to-read report. There are several sections in your report, and each offers a different set of information on the vehicle you want to buy.
Here are the sections that you can expect to see in your report.
Registration & Vehicle details
Now this section is important for two main reasons. Firstly, you want to make sure that you are assessing the same car that the seller is trying to offload. If the registration and vehicle details don't match with what the seller has given or shown to you, then something is wrong.
The second reason why this section is important is the necessary rego details. Driving an unregistered car on Australian roads is illegal. If you will need to pick up the vehicle when buying make sure you won't get in trouble as you head back home.
Stolen Status Check
Australia on a whole has a high rate of vehicle theft. Plus, because you can sell vehicles across states, there's nothing stopping someone from stealing a car in WA and selling it in Queensland. So that you aren't the unlucky few, a check online of the databases will let you know if the car was reported stolen.
Sometimes a vehicle can be written off but fixed to look like new and re-registered for road use. But, suppose you don't want a car that has been fixed for severe damage like collision and fire? What do you do if you've already spent your money?
Well, we don't have any options after you've spent. But, if you haven't bought the second-hand car yet, then this is the time to know about the accident history of the vehicle.
This is by far one of the main reasons people love the PPSR. When you can at the click of a button know within seconds if a seller still has money owing on the vehicle, you now know how to handle the transaction. You can choose to go ahead after discussing payment terms with the seller. Or, you can choose to forgo the whole thing, especially if it seemed as if the seller was trying to hide this fact.
Depending on what that information is in the report, you can decide whether buying is worth it or not.
Our Top 3 Reasons Why a PPSR Search is Important
While we most tend to focus on what is present in our vehicle history reports, we often overlook the very tangible reasons why this report is critical in the buying process.
Here are 3 reasons why we've found the PPSR to be so very useful, and why you will too.
Is it the legally registered owner selling you a vehicle? How can you tell? The Report provides both stolen status checks and registration details. The registration info will have who currently is the registered owner (including if the bank still owns it because of debt by the seller). Plus, the stolen status check will highlight if the vehicle was stolen and not recovered.
It's protection from repossession, protection from receiving stolen goods, from bad debts, bad deals, and so much more.
With data compiled from official government records, you are assured of details as accurate as the government can make them. Plus, the official certificate that is provided with a report is your assurance for any problems that may crop up down the road. A creditor didn't register their interest in the used car you bought? You can defend yourself with official proof of your search before you bought.
Peace of Mind
Nothing can be more comforting than knowing that you spent your money wisely. A car - even a second-hand one - isn't cheap. That's why it's so important that you have all the facts so you can make an informed and critical decision. That's what these reports offered by QuickPPSR does - eliminate the guesswork and put you on firm footing to assess a deal quickly.
So, before you complete a car purchase ask - did I do a PPSR check first to protect myself? Or, if you see a friend or a family member about to buy a used car with no official background detail, explain why they need this report and how easy it is to get it done at QuickPPSR.
