Maori Land On Line

On the 29th November 2005, Maori Land On Line was officially launched. The site is now available on the Maori Land Court website at this location: www.maorilandonline.govt.nz/

What is Maori Land On Line?

MLOL is a purpose built computer programme that enables people using the internet to search for current Maori land ownership, title and land management information and print that information.

Users can:

  • Perform a search under owner name to verify if a person owns current Maori land interests;
  • Perform a search under block name to verify if the block is a current Maori land title;
  • Perform a search under name of a management structure to verify whether a current management structure exists;
  • Perform a search to find out if there are current alienations (e.g leases, occupations orders) or encumberances (e.g. mortgages) on a current Maori land title; and
  • Print search results – e.g. current owner details; current block ownership lists; current management structure details.

The information returned to users is restricted to:

  • the block details for all current Maori land titles – name of block, date and reference of title order, area of block, certificate of title reference (if applicable), number of owners, total shares in block;
  • the ownership details for current Maori land titles – names of owners and number of shares owned;
  • the details of management structures which have been established to administer Maori land – date and reference of order creating management structure, names of trustees; and
  • details of encumbrances (affecting title to the land) noted on the memorial schedule.

MLOL does not provide access to:

  • any historical information;
  • any historical images;
  • any whakapapa information
  • any addresses or contact details for owners or trustees; and
  • copies of Court orders (although references are provided)
