Declaration of Identity
A Declaration of Identity is a letter prepared by a suitably qualified professional that certifies that all of the services to a property are located within the site boundary of the property. These services usually include a septic tank/waste water treatment systems and percolation area, services, the dwelling and ancillary works and a private supply water well.
The Declaration is signed by the suitably qualified professional and is witnessed in the presence of a Commissioner of Oaths. The declaration refers to a folio number and is accompanied by the Folio map outlining the site in red.
It is generally requested by the purchasers Solicitors to ensure that no issues arise in the future with access to these services. A declaration of identity is most commonly required for sites in rural locations.
