South Australia

In South Australia, as much as it is important to ensure you understand the process, it is also important to ensure all important documents are provided. In South Australia, in addition to a Contract, a seller is also required to provide a Vendor statement. The Vendor statement needs to include the correct information and searches; without the same, Contracts cannot become unconditional. At Coutts, when purchasing in South Australia, we will assist you in understanding crucial elements such as the Vendor statement.

Australian Capital Territory

When purchasing in other states, you purchase the title to a property, however in the Australian Capital Territory you do not purchase the title of the property; instead, all property ownership is by way of lease. Due to the fact that you will not own a property and instead own a lease over the property, there are many differences which it is important you are aware of when purchasing and at Coutts, we can help with this.
