Requisitions on Title

Document Type: Article

If you are purchasing a property, as part of acting on a conveyance your lawyer will make enquiries from the vendor about the title to the property. These are called “Requisitions on Title”. Requisitions seek information from the vendor which may not have previously been disclosed or discovered during inspection of the property and may include whether there are any disputes between neighbours relating to fences, or whether there is any matter that could justify the making of an upgrading or demolition order in respect of the property.

There is a lot of law about what can be asked and what cannot be asked, and about the consequences of giving answers. As each conveyance is different, it is important that Requisitions on Title are made and that your lawyer analyses the responses.

For assistance with this process, please contact our Managing Partner, Dominic Wilson on (02) 8268 4000 or by email at Dominic will direct you to an experienced property and conveyancing lawyer who can help you.
