My Activity

Q: The house we have been renting for 3 years has been sold and the new owner wants to move in. What is the minimum notice period we should be receiving?
A: Hi Cathy,

Was this query answered for you last week?
If not please feel free to contact me & I can assist with any queries you have.

Kind regards,
Q: Hi

Submitted to 'Real Estate' page but also a 'Legal' question:

6 months ago I purchased a house off the plan. I negotiated a 5% deposit but will have to pay the remainder next month.

I recently enquired in the same development for a relative and realised that they are now selling the same property as mine for a significantly lower price, a large financial rebate, many added features thrown in for free and even a $12k gift card. Whilst it is not ideal, I'm considering the opportunity this may present. My question is - what are my legal rights in terms of selling before settlement or forfeiting the contract and then repurchasing in the same development with the new terms? If it is simply a matter of forfeiting my deposit, then I would still be significantly better off. Are there other ramifications which would stop people doing this? I take it they won't simply amend my contract.

Any advice would be much appreciated!
A: Hi Dan,

I can put you in touch with a property lawyer if you would like some advise?
Good luck!

Kind regards,
Q: Hello everyone. I'm a first homebuyer looking into buying an apartment before this year ends. I have requested a section 32 and contract of sale from the vendors of 2 apartments. I'm more interested with the 2-BR unit and would like to put an offer (although it is below the selling price). Do I need a conveyancer to review both contracts for the 2 apartments, or is it OK to put an informal offer for the first one, and if the vendor agrees, I'd have a conveyancer review the contract before I formally sign it?
A: Hi Fae,

Please let me know if our office can assist with your search or sale process.
Good luck!

Kind regards,
