Of all the Courts in New South Wales, the Supreme Court, generally, has jurisdiction on land title matters.
By the time we have arrived in the Supreme Court, it is usually essential to brief a barrister, known as Counsel. Counsel's costs can be as high as $5000 per day, for a hearing alone.
The Registrar-General is often joined to such proceedings but he will usually submit to the Court, except as to costs.
One of the most daunting prospects of a land title dispute is the cost of going to Court. Costs are extremely high in this Court and can easily soar to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Going to Court is not for the faint-hearted.
There is very scant legal aid in property matters. If your problem requires going to Court, be prepared for a substantial outlay of costs. Costs are generally recovered by a successful party. But equally so, a losing party must pay not only their own costs but the costs of the successful party as well, leaving an enormous liability.
