Sometimes, when you make a written offer for the purchase of a property, the vendor may require you to provide it with a section 66W certificate. The provision of a section 66W certificate waives your right of cooling off which means that upon exchange, the contract will be immediately binding and you will be expected to complete settlement regardless of your financial situation or whether you are satisfied with the condition of the property.
Under the Conveyancing Act 1919, a s 66W certificate must set out the following:
Given the gravity of providing a s 66W, we do not typically recommend our purchaser clients to waive their cooling off right, unless they are absolutely certain that they are satisfied with their due diligence checks, that they understand the effect of signing a legally binding contract, as well as the consequences should they fail to do so as outlined above.
A Building Certificate is a document issued by the local Council relating to existing works to a building. A Building Certificate is usually requested by buyers or sellers of properties to make sure that what is being bought or sold is not going to be the subject of action by the council.
Often a Building Certificate is requested when work is undertaken without the appropriate approvals being issued by Council or a Private Certifier. A building certificate states that Council will not take any action for a period of 7 years to Order, or take proceedings for an Order, to have the building covered by the certificate to:
In general, you may make enquiries with Council and apply for a Building Certificate at liberty. Some contracts provide that you need to obtain the vendor’s prior written
consent prior to apply for a Building Certificate. If you are unsure about the provisions in the contract, we may review the terms of the contract and advise you accordingly.
However, kindly be advised that in most circumstances, the contract would provide that you are purchasing the property “as is”, which means that if the authority refuses to issue the building certificate or requires works to be undertaken before its issue of such certificate, you may not raise any objection or requisition, seek compensation from the vendor or seek to rescind or terminate the contract due to this and the vendor is not required to attend to any works as required by the authorities.
In any event, if you have concerns as to whether any work conducted at the property is illegal, we highly recommend that you undertake this due diligence prior to proceeding with the purchase.
It is within the purchaser’s right to lodge a purchaser’s caveat against the title after a contract is being entered into. A purchaser’s caveat on title will prevent certain future dealings with the title to the property without you first being notified by the NSW Land Registry Services. Any Caveat would lapse at the time of registration of the Transfer of Land in your favour at the time of settlement.
In some occasions, the vendor may have a special condition in the contract removing your right to register a purchaser’s caveat against the title to the property, if you are unsure about the provisions in the contract, we may review the terms of the contract and advise you accordingly.
Deposit under a contract is usually 10% of the price. However, this can be varied when the parties negotiate and agree on a reduced amount, which is usually 5% of the price.
If you are purchasing a property through a “private sale” process (as opposed to purchasing at the auction), you may expect a request for you to pay the initial deposit, being 0.25% of the price upon signing the contract and the remaining balance of the deposit is expected to be paid at the expiration of the cooling off period.
Commonly, if you have negotiated for a deposit that is less than 10% of the purchase price, there will be a special condition in the contract providing that the deposit under the contract remains at 10% of the price. However, it is deemed to be paid by instalments, namely 5% upon contract exchange and the payment of the remaining 5% deposit falls due contemporaneously at settlement.
Should you default under the contract entitling the seller to claim the deposit under the contract, such deposit will be deemed to be equal to 10% of the purchase price, regardless of what you have paid upfront as the deposit. The unpaid amount may be recoverable from you as a liquidated sum.
The vendors may require the deposit to be released to them prior to settlement for the purpose of purchasing of another property, paying stamp duty on that property or to
facilitate the discharge of any liabilities on the property being sold. Whilst it is not unusual for the vendor to require the early release of deposit, it is generally not recommended that you allow the vendor to tap into your deposit until settlement, in case the seller fails to complete on time for any reason but have already spent the deposit. Unless the seller has a legitimate and immediate need for the deposit that has been communicated to you, to which you have considered and agreed to, then any special condition included in the contract allowing the vendor to procure a release of the deposit prior to settlement should be deleted prior to exchange. If you are unsure about the provisions in the contract, we may review the terms of the contract and advise you accordingly.
