Before you purchase your next property, consider title insurance.
Cover to repair or demolish any unknown unapproved alterations made to your strata unit by previous owners where your relevant council issues an order to do so.
Cover if you cannot use your strata unit as your home because it is not zoned for residential use and this was never disclosed to you prior to settlement.
Cover for unknown and outstanding special levy fees (for example, for unusual property maintenance) that were issued before you agreed to purchase the strata unit.
Cover for loss caused by errors contained in certain public property searches carried out when you purchased your strata unit.
Cover for unknown and outstanding rates, strata fees, charges and land tax owed by the previous owner and not adjusted correctly by your conveyancing practitioner.
Cover for fraud that might result in your land being sold to another owner or a fraudulent mortgage taken against your land.
“My First Title coverage paid for itself, and then some, within the first several weeks of settlement. Some bills associated with the property were not paid by the previous owner, which slipped through the cracks when solicitors did their due diligence. It would have cost me over $2,000 but everything was covered by First Title in a timely manner. I highly recommend them.”

“First Title assisted us every step of the way and made sure the financial stress of fixing our boundary issues was kept to an absolute minimum!”

“More than 5 years after purchasing our first home we were informed by our local council of 4 illegal builds/structures on our property. If it wasn’t for our Title Insurance Policy we would have never been able to afford the repairs to our home and most likely have to demolish a large portion of it. First Title supported and guided us through every step of our claim, making a quite overwhelming situation a lot easier. Thank you First Title.”
