$85,000 fine could have been avoided by checking the property title before purchase

Another rural property issue today. This farmer who wanted to return land to native bush was fined $85,000 for felling Emissions Trading Scheme pine trees.

He said he recalled seeing something about the Kyoto Protocol in the deed when he bought the farm.

"But I didn't know what that meant," he said.

Please -- if you see anything on a title that you don't understand, ask questions -- get your lawyer to explain everything to you so that you do know exactly what you are buying. It can be expensive if you don't.
