Sale & Other Disposition of Land Policy

Parties interested in acquiring a Town road or portion of a Town road are required to complete an application form. You can download and fill out the form in our Land Disposition Application Package. 

Property Searches

You no longer have to be a lawyer, law clerk or take time to visit the Land Registry Office to obtain information about what is registered on title of a property. Title searches can be done online by members of the public through a web-based product called “OnLand “.  Please note that there is a fee for this service that are subject to change.  

The Legal Services Team

This team is comprised of two Lawyers, a Legal Assistant and two Law Clerks who understand and appreciate that the legal services required by a community such as the Town of Innisfil are extremely broad. The Legal Services Team continues to adapt and evolve to meet these ever changing needs. The Legal Services Department cannot provide legal advice or services to the general public. If you have a legal matter which you would like to discuss with a lawyer, you can contact the Law Society Referral Services by calling 1-800-268-8326.
