Should I use "the" in the below sentence and whether I should use cardinal number for the date 23 January 2022, so it becomes 23rd January 2022.

"23" is a cardinal number, and "23rd" is an ordinal number.

You don't use the article for dates in writing. In AmE, you should say:

- The property was settled on January 23, 2022.

In BrE, you should say:

- The property was settled on 23 January, 2022.

It is mostly in speech that the article can appear: The property was settled on January the 23rd / on the 23rd of January.

It would perhaps be more accurate to say: The purchase of the property was settled on ...
