Home Buyers

Each type of property has its own unique features. For example most apartments are on unit titles. Tucked away in the unit title structure are sets of body corporate rules which can limit the way you use your unit.

Buy a house with peace of mind

We handle all aspects of buying and selling homes, sections, apartments, town houses and retirement village units. If you can live in it, we can handle the legal side of transferring the ownership.

You may not be able to have a dog or curtains of a colour that you want. If you are buying a cross-lease property you may have shared rights and obligations for driveways and restrictions on alterations you can make to the property. If you are buying or subdividing a section there will be Council planning matters you will need to be aware of.

Contract Conditions

Apart from the relatively few occasions where house purchasers are able to make an unconditional offer agreements are subject to conditions. Finance, LIM, title and builders report are the most common. How you express your conditions and how long you need to satisfy them can determine how attractive your offer is. We can assist with cutting down the time needed and suggestions on what will make your offer more attractive. Buying a house is a competitive process. Being one step ahead of other house buyers can make all the difference.
