Your questions answered

How should I prepare for buying a property in Victoria?

There are a number of important things you need to consider when buying a property in Victoria. Firstly, you should firmly understand what you are looking for in a property. Secondly, know your budget, financing strategy and the costs that will be involved with the property. Lastly, educating ourself about the property market and how it works will assist you to navigate the process smoothly.

What costs are involved in buying property?

There are a variety of expenses incurred when you buy a property. The price of the house itself, taxes and legal fees are just some of those involved, but an exact total figure depend on many factors. However, there are a number that you can count on. Basic purchase conveyancing costs $700 plus GST and disbursements, and purchasing off the plan will set you back $1200 plus disbursements. There is typically no charge for reading a Section 32 statement if AANDI is handling the purchase, unless the matter is particularly complicated or extensive. In that case, a fee of $300 applies. Finally, the cost of Settlement will be included in disbursements.

To give you a more precise idea of costs, get in touch with an AANDI conveyancing solicitor today.

How do I make an offer on a property?

When you are ready to buy your property in Victoria, contact the real estate agent. They will then request you make the offer in writing. A written offer confirms that you  want to buy the property and are prepared to be legally bound to do so. You should be careful with making a written offer in any form because it can be considered a enforceable contract. AANDI Lawyers advises that you contact us for assistance in this process.

What does buying off-the-plan mean?

Buying off-the-plan means buying a house or unit before it has been built. Buying off-the-plan in Victoria can be advantageous in saving on land transfer duty costs and locking in a price in areas with rising property prices. There are risks, since you won't see the property until is built and it may not meet your expectations. Acquiring a mortgage can be a more complicated affair too.

How do property settlements work?

When you buy a unit or house in Victoria, the seller will set a settlement date in the contract of sale. This is usually 30 to 90 days after the contact has been signed. Settlement involves paying the agreed amount, acquiring the property title and taking possession of your property.

What is "cooling off"?

"Cooling off" means the right of someone buying a property to cancel the contract and walk away from the purchase, no questions asked. In the state of Victoria, a buyer has 3 business days after signing the purchasing contract to “cool off”. There are some nuances and exceptions to the right, which must be exercised in compliance with Section 32 of the Sale of Land Act 1962.
