WHAT IS A MEMORANDUM OF LOSS?

A Memorandum of Loss is the legal instrument to be prepared and registered against a registered title document that has been lost or permanently misplaced.

Thus, if your Certificate of Occupancy (Federal or State), Land Certificate, Governor’s Consent, Crown Grant, or any other registered title document has been lost or misplaced, a MEMORANDUM OF LOSS is the legal instrument to be prepared and registered against the document at the Lands Registry of the state where the property is located.
