The purpose of requisitions on title is to require the seller's solicitor to clarify and if necessary to rectify defects in the title supplied which the buyer's solicitor finds unsatisfactory. In practice they are commonly used also to resolve administrative queries relating to the arrangements for completion1.
The seller will usually deduce title2 to the buyer before exchange of contracts3 and the contract may contain an express condition precluding requisitions from being raised after that time. The Standard Contractual Conditions4 prevent the raising of requisitions after exchange, but only in relation to matters disclosed by the seller prior to exchange.
