buying page2Buying a property is an exciting time and investment in your future. Now you have taken the first step you need an expert to guide you through the process. Contact Jeannette Ernst to obtain advice on your purchase of real estate and conveyancing costs. She offers a pre purchase review of a Contract and Section 32 Statement before you sign or advice if you have already signed these documents. This is then followed by guidance on what needs to be done next.

A Section 32 Statement is a disclosure statement from the owner (Vendor) of the property which sets out details as required by law before a valid Contract of Sale can be entered into.

Under the terms of a normal Contract of Sale you accept the land that you are buying is the same as that shown in the Title plan provided in the Section 32 Statement. You may wish to check the measurements and location of the land before you sign the Contract.

As a Purchaser you also accept the structural condition of the dwelling and improvements (including the working order of appliances) at the Property from that date unless otherwise provided in the Contract of Sale. It is important that any agreement made with the Vendor or their sales agent is written into your Contract of Sale. For example, finance, building inspection, any repairs or rubbish removal. Jeannette can assist you with this process and prepare any special conditions to be included.

In most cases a three clear business day cooling off period applies from the date when the Purchaser signs the Contract of Sale for residential real estate. If you buy at auction or three clear business days before or after the publicly advertised date of the auction the Cooling Off does not apply. The terms of the Cooling Off are set out in the Contract.

Jeannette’s many years of valuable experience can guide you through the Conveyancing maze and her keep it simple approach reduces stress for clients even with complex circumstances. She can also provide you with advice of stamp duty assessments for real estate, relevant exemptions and first home buyer assistance.
