A PPSR search certificate tells you a lot about the car you’re buying. However, there are other checks you should do before buying it, including:
- get an independent mechanic to carry out a pre-purchase car inspection (they can confirm the vehicle’s identity by checking the VIN or chassis number has not been tampered with)
- ask the previous owner for the car’s service manual, so you can check the odometer readings are consistent
ensure any car modifications are legal.
The PPSR checks have replaced searches of the state-based Register of Encumbered Vehicles (REV), or REV checks.
