1.    Are all legal rights in property capable of registration in your system? If not please state the legal rights or interests in land that must be investigated outside of the registration of title system i.e. those that could bind a bona fide purchaser for value without notice without registration?

There are very few exceptions and basically regulated by law, such as legal mortgages which nowadays are very uncommon, or privileged credits, but their priority basically affects the right to be paid ahead of others who have seized the property or have a mortgage. Leases of rural property oblige the purchaser but the seller must confirm if a lease    does exist for the deed to be registered.

2.    To whom does responsibility for investigation of such rights apply?

The purchaser should do enquiries.

3.    What protection if any is available to parties who are bound by property rights that are not capable of being recorded on the title registration system? (For example “hidden rights” such as certain easements that may run with land without a legal requirement for registration).

The seller should inform the buyer if any of those hidden rights exist and in failing to do so, liability could surface for misrepresentation.

4.    Are the boundaries conclusive in the registration of title system? If not, are they guaranteed by another state agency/government department/authority?

No. It is a competence of the Cadastre.

5.    How does an aggrieved party remedy any boundary error?

It could either be done by a procedure before the Cadastre or in some  cases through a civil procedure in Court if necessary.
