Let’s explore the procedure for the Removal of Restrictive Title Deed Conditions, empowering you to navigate this process effectively.
Understanding Restrictive Title Deed Conditions
Restrictive conditions within a Title Deed can limit the type of development, usage, or alterations allowed on a property. These conditions were historically included in title deeds of properties within established townships as control mechanisms to protect property owners and the community.
Outdated Title Deed Conditions and Modern Regulations
Over time, the introduction of town planning schemes, land use planning schemes, Municipal By-laws, and National Building Regulations has made many title deed conditions obsolete. Modern regulations have replaced these control mechanisms, now strictly enforced by local authorities. Consequently, the need for certain title conditions to remain in the title deeds has diminished.
