What’s in a property title, and why might it make my bank twitchy?

The property listing looked too good to be true… a two-bedroom apartment in Auckland, minutes from Queen St, with a large living room that opened through louvre sliders onto a broad, shaded balcony.

Below, the complex’s pool shimmered in the Auckland sun, surrounded by yellow deck chairs just calling out to me to come spend an afternoon lazing on them while I read a book. Absolutely dreamy.

The home even came with an enclosed car park, and access to a small gym. And the cost? $650,000.

I got onto the agent straight away. Which is how I was reminded that, when it comes to property, if something looks too good to be true, that’s usually because it is.
