Titles and Island Acquisition
One of the crucial aspects of island acquisition is the Title which, in most cases, should include 100% ownership of the entire property. There may be some acceptable exceptions (ex. a lighthouse owned and operated by the local government located on the island in question will remain owned and operated by aforementioned local government) but outside of such exceptions, Title should include 100% ownership of the entire island. Other Title considerations include but are not limited to; building restrictions, environmental laws, transfer or purchase tax, income tax in the event of resale, and more.
