Declaration of Identity
A Declaration of Identity is a document which certifies a property with regard to the accuracy of the site boundaries, access to the property and the services used by the property.
Such services generally include a septic tank or treatment systems along with the percolation area and rainwater soakaway, heating systems, the dwelling house and ancillary works and a private well water supply.
This Declaration of Identity is usually requested by solicitors when a property is being sold or purchased to ensure that no issues arise in the future and is most commonly required for rural properties.
Access to a public road is also addressed in the Declaration of Identity, has the property direct access to the public road or is access via a private road. The property folio is referred to in the declaration and accompanied by the Folio map outlining the site in red.
