- On signing the contract for sale, you will be required to pay a deposit of 0.25% of the agreed purchase price. There is a provision of a 5 business-day cooling-off period to give the purchaser time to arrange for loan approval and to carry out any building and pest inspections that they may require. During the cooling-off period, the purchaser can change their mind and cancel the contract. If the purchaser does decide to cancel the contract, they will forfeit 0.25% of the purchase price to the vendor.
There is no cooling-off period if:
– The purchaser instructs their solicitor to sign a 66W Certificate which waives their cooling-off right; or
– The property is sold at auction.
- Prior to settlement, it is advisable that the purchaser carries out a final inspection. This is to ensure that the property is in the same condition as when you last inspected it, and that all inclusions are as per the contract you signed.
- Settlement is the completion of the transaction. The settlement date is established at the time of the exchange of contracts.
