Selling or transferring title to property seems straightforward on the surface but once you get down into the roots, there are many aspects of the transaction that need attention and land agreements and encumbrances are part of this landscape.

Land agreements and encumbrances contain agreements, instructions, and restrictions, pertaining to a particular property and its future use.

These documents are sometimes required by local Council’s before they will agree to the development of land within their jurisdiction, so that they can ensure that the land is developed in a manner that is in keeping with the standards of that area.

They are also used by developers to help maximise the sale price of their land by giving buyers certainty that a minimum standard will be adhered to by their future neighbours when making improvements like fencing and new buildings.
