Why is it so important to search the title and registered interests ?
In recent times it has become extremely important to conduct your due diligence when buying, selling or investing in real estate .This is so you know exactly who owns the property, if there are any covenants, easements, caveats or other restrictions on the title and you confirm the correct legal description ie lot and DP number and the area. We do not personally interpret the title or interest documents, however the Real Estate Agents Authority suggests “ a licensee needs to establish whether or not there are interests registered on the title such as covenants, caveats, easements, drainage rights etc that should be brought to the attention of interested parties”. This shows just how important searching it is to search the title and any registered interests.
