What is a title search?

A title search is an extract of information from Land Use Victoria on any real property. The title search will contain information on who the owner is, when it was last transferred, title reference details, restriction details, transactions on the property within the last 120 days, etc. The title search is an important search because it is a simple and quick, yet powerful tool to help you determine in the first instance whether the property is right for you.

It is important to order this title search at the beginning of a conveyance because you wouldn’t want to waste time and effort in having gone through the process, only to find out that the seller doesn’t actually own the property in their own name, or that there are restrictions on the property that prevent you from doing what you wanted to do. For example, a title search can reveal whether there is a caveat on the property lodged by a disgruntled seller’s ex-wife that you must contend with as a buyer. If you are buying a property with the intention of moving into the property within two months, finding out halfway through that there is pending litigation on the property that is going to delay your conveyance might be a tad bit frustrating. Hence, it is important that you engage your conveyancing lawyer to check on the title early on.

We used LEAD conveyancing to buy a new apartment and sell our existing property. They were a pleasure to work with. They communicated with us in a clear and timely manner via email. Obstacles were removed with alacrity. And all of our communications with staff were pleasant and efficient. I highly recommend their services.

Jessie and the team at Lead conveyancing were professional and extremely helpful throughout the pre settlement/ settlement period. They took care of everything while being transparent and upfront about any issues or concerns we might face through the process. I believe they were thorough in their due diligence and worked with us to ensure our contract was favourable and all conditions were met. Jessie was attentive and took all my calls when I had questions and was always helpful. While they may not be the cheapest option in the conveyancing space they are certainly worth it.

As a first home buyer, I wasn’t familiar with buying a house. Nicholas was always available to answer any questions I had. He was lovely to deal with.
