What is the PPSR?

In Australia the Personal Property Securities Register  (PPSR) is a government run single, national online database that shows you whether someone is claiming an interest in goods or assets. It provides information to help protect consumers when they are buying personal property such as cars, boats or artworks (not including land or buildings). Read the Australian Government guide to PPSR
