Things you should know about buying property

There is no such think as a normal conveyance. There is an expected journey and a very clear outcome but how many things will pop up is unknown. Planning is the best approach and making sure you are well informed of your choices.

  • Before you sign – are you protected?

There are many things to take into consideration during the negotiating process. Ensure any necessary special conditions are included to protect your interests before you are legally committed.

  • The Cooling Off Period – fees to beware of

If you decide to cancel the Contract within the 5 day cooling off period, you must pay the Seller an amount of 0.25% of the purchase price, if demanded.

  • Property Insurance – don’t be at risk

It is a contractual requirement that you must insure the property, as the risk of the property passes to you as the Buyer at 5pm on the first business day after the date of your Contract – not at settlement.
