Your questions answered

What is a Section 32?

A Section 32 (also called a vendor statement) is the formal legal disclosure from the seller to the buyer. Ir contains all required information that affects a property and how it is used, such as annual rates expenses, property charges, building notices, and so on. The purpose of a Section 32 is for a buyer to have access to all relevant information that may impact their decision to acquire the property.

A Section 32 is a complicated legal document and, whether you're a buyer or seller, AANDI Lawyers recommends you approach one of our conveyancing experts for help.

Why does the Section 32 matter for the seller?

The Section 32 is a legal requirement. If you don't provide it, the buyer may be able to walk away or scrap the sale. As a compulsory legal document, it must be completed accurately. Another important reason to provide one is that, should the buyer withdraw after the cooling off period, a seller can keep the deposit.

Why does the Section 32 matter for the buyer?

It is important that a buyer be a fully informed of all pertinent aspects of a property, so that they can make a fully informed decision.

When must a Section 32 be provided to the buyer?

A Section 32 must be provided to the buyer prior to the contract of sale being signed.

What if a seller does not provide a Section 32?

Buyers don't have to proceed with a transaction in the absence of a Section 32. It is important that buyer ceases the purchasing process. The information within in a Section 32 is critical to making a sensible financial decision.

What happens if the Section 32 is inaccurate?

An inaccurate Section 32 may entitle the buyer to terminate the contract of sale without penalty. It is a crime for a seller to intentionally provide incorrect information in a Section 32.

Do private sales require a Section 32?

The law requires that you provide a Section 32 vendor statement regardless of whether you employ a real estate agent or do it yourself. AANDI Lawyers strongly encourages you to involve a lawyer from the beginning of the process.

How much will a Section 32 cost?

When AANDI is handling your conveyancing, there is no charge for reading a straightforward Section 32. In certain more extensive or complicated cases, a fee of $300 may apply.
