Company Abbreviation by CodyJohnston


									                          COMPANY ABBREVIATIONS
Land Registration Offices and Registries of Deeds have adopted several standard abbreviations
for companies when entering names into the Grantor/Grantee Indices (GGI) through LORIS or
LIN-NS. When searching the GGI for company or enterprise names, the following abbreviations
must be used or search results will not be accurate.

•       When entering search criteria, use the theory that less is better. Start with a broad search,
        then refine.
•       The Registry will never abbreviate the first word of any company name
•       Never search under ‘The’ as the first word in a company name
