Conditions of sale of land under Act

    (1)     Under a contract for the purchase of land under this Act the purchaser shall be entitled, at the cost of the vendor—

        (a)     to receive from the vendor sufficient particulars of title to enable him or her to prepare the appropriate instrument to give effect to the contract; and

        (b)     to receive from the vendor an abstract of any document or instrument forming part of the vendor's title in respect of which a caveat is entered upon the register; and

        (c)     to have any objection to the registration of the instrument removed by the vendor:

Provided that, as to any such objection which the purchaser ought to have raised on the particulars or abstract, or upon the investigation of the title, or which arises from his or her own act, default or omission, he or she shall not be entitled to have it removed except at his or her own cost.

    (2)     This section applies only if and as far as a contrary intention is not expressed in the contract, and shall have effect subject to the terms of the contract, and to the provisions therein contained.
