Before You Start

It is a good idea to talk to your Bank to obtain a pre-approval before you start looking to buy a new property.  This will give you an idea of how much you can afford to spend.  A pre-approval is not an approval.  The Bank will not be able to give you a formal approval until you have signed a Contract and the Bank have carried out investigations into the property you are buying including having a valuation undertaken on the property. 

You will need to factor in due diligence costs such as Local Council Rates and Title search costs (there are many other searches that can and should be carried out), Transfer Duty and Registration costs.  We can provide you with an estimate of these costs at an early stage of the process so you know how much money you will need.  Contact Us today to obtain an estimate of Conveyancing Fees.

We recommend that you have your Mortgage documents reviewed by us before you sign them.  This is especially important if you have never had a mortgage before but is also important if you have.  Financial lending laws are ever changing and you cannot guarantee that your loan documents this time will be the same as prior loans you may have had.

Making an Offer

Once you have found a property then you will need to make an offer.  If the property is listed through a Real Estate Agent then the Agent will work with you to make an offer.  The Agent will most likely want you to make a written offer in Contract form.  You should not sign a Contract until you have obtained advice from our experienced Conveyancing Solicitor.

When making your offer you will need to tell the Agent how much you want to pay for the property, whether you are obtaining finance and how long your Bank needs to issue a formal finance approval (we recommend at least fourteen (14) days), and whether you will be getting a Pest and Building Inspection carried out. 

Contact Us to arrange a FREE appointment to review your Contract.

You might be asked to pay an initial deposit.  This can be negotiated and does not need to be a lot.  If your Contract is subject to you obtaining approval of finance or a satisfactory Pest and Building Inspection and these conditions are not satisfied then the deposit will be refunded to you.

Signing the Contract

You will either sign the Contract with the Real Estate Agent, with us or electronically.  We recommend that you do not sign the Contract until we have given you advice about the terms of the Contract.  Normally the Buyer will sign the Contract first and the Seller last.  The Contract will be dated when the last party signs the Contract.  You will be notified by either the Real Estate Agent or us once your offer has been accepted.

Cooling-Off Period

Residential Contracts in Queensland are subject to a Cooling-Off Period in most circumstances.  Not all do though so it is a good idea to check first.

Contact Us today to see if your Contract will have a Cooling-Off Period.

If your Contract does have a Cooling-Off Period then the Buyer can terminate the Contract within a small window of time after signing the Contract.  The Buyer does not have to give a reason to terminate the Contract during the Cooling-Off Period.  The Cooling-Off Period is a very short time and you should not delay if you want to terminate the Contract during this period.  There can be financial consequences of terminating the Contract during the Cooling-Off Period.  We do not recommend you do this until you have taken legal advice from us.
