FAQs On Conveyancing
Key dates in the conveyancing process include:
- The contract date
- The date the cooling-off period ends
- The date finance approval is due
- The date any other conditions are due, such as the building inspection date
- The settlement date
The cooling-off period applies to a buyer of residential property, commencing on the day the buyer or conveyancing solicitor receives a copy of the signed and dated contract. The cooling-off period ends five business days after the contract is received.
The purpose of a cooling-off period is to allow a buyer to change their mind about proceeding with a contract. The buyer does not need to give a reason as to why the contract is terminated - if they wish to do so. However, the notification must be given to the seller in writing and the buyer must pay a penalty equal to 0.25% of the purchase price.
