Buying and Selling Real Estate in New South Wales (NSW)

In NSW, the process of buying and selling real estate is governed by various laws and regulations, including the Conveyancing Act 1919, the Real Property Act 1900, and the Strata Schemes Management Act 2015. The key aspects of buying and selling real estate in NSW include:

  1. Contract for sale: A legally binding contract for sale must be prepared, outlining the terms and conditions of the transaction, including the purchase price, deposit, settlement date, and any special conditions.
  2. Due diligence: Buyers are responsible for conducting due diligence on the property, including reviewing legal documents, obtaining building and pest inspections, and ensuring compliance with zoning and development regulations.
  3. Conveyancing: The transfer of legal ownership from the seller to the buyer is facilitated through the conveyancing process, which involves preparing and exchanging legal documents, arranging settlement, and registering the transfer of ownership.
  4. Stamp duty: Buyers are required to pay stamp duty on the purchase of real estate, calculated as a percentage of the property’s value or purchase price.
  5. Strata properties: For the purchase or sale of strata properties (e.g., apartments, townhouses), additional considerations apply, such as reviewing strata records, by-laws, and levies.
  6. Commercial properties: The sale or purchase of commercial properties may involve additional complexities, such as reviewing lease agreements, zoning regulations, and environmental compliance.

It’s crucial to seek legal advice and representation from experienced property lawyers to navigate the buying and selling process effectively, ensure compliance with legal requirements, and protect your interests throughout the transaction.
