6 Common Property Ownership Risks

Whether you're a new or existing homeowner, an investment or a commercial property owner, check out how
we could cover you against these types of risks. A First Title policy could protect you against:

Illegal
structures
Title insurance could cover you for building works or renovations of a previous owner without the required council approval, examples include decks, pergolas or carports.
Incorrect
boundaries
Title insurance could cover you for boundary issues such as fences and retaining walls that have not been built on the true boundary.
Planning and
zoning laws
Title insurance could provide cover if you can't use live in your property because it is not zoned residential.
Encroaching
structures
Title insurance could cover you if a neighbour has built a structure on your land and you haven't known about or agreed to it.
Wrongly calculated
rates and land tax
Even an expert conveyancer or solicitor can make a mistake. For example you could be covered if they get your rates, land tax or strata levies wrong.
Identity theft
and fraud
Title insurance could provide cover for fraud that might result in your land being sold to another owner or a fraudulent mortgage taken against your land.
