Checking the Title, Property file and Computer Records

Checking the title, property file and computer records for the site will familiarise you with both the history of the site and any particular restrictions that might apply to the use of the site. There may have been previous applications on the site, illegal buildings or activities, or restrictions on the title that might influence the AEE and subsequent assessment. In particular, the title may contain consent notices or covenants, and identify rights-of-way and easements that may affect how the property can be subdivided, used or developed.
