In response to recent incidences of real estate fraud where properties have been sold without the owners’ consent or knowledge, Landgate now require all Settlement Agents to provide 100 point ID check on sellers who live overseas, together with a statutory declaration to confirm the steps that the settlement agent has taken to validate the identification of the seller. All Transfer of Land documents which have been signed overseas MUST be accepted in the manner by Landgate before a property is allowed to settle.
