In the official Land Registry website, several forms are available to request official searches (USD 10), inspections of the registry (USD 5 per page) or certified copies (USD 2 per page). Under Barbados Law, "a person" can request "any sheet of the registry map or any filed instrument at all convenient times." (Section 38 Land Registration Act) The entries to a real property include "a proprietorship section containing the name and address of the proprietor and a note of any inhibition, caution, or restriction affecting his right of disposition." (Section 11(3)(b) Land Registration Act) No indication is given as to how to proceed with the corresponding payment of the fees (suggesting this can only be done presentially).
