A Contract to Purchase – Purchase Your First House

Once you have found a home or apartment in which you would like to live, the agent will ask you to make an offer in writing. You shouldn’t be afraid, but should make such a proposal, of course, if you are sure that the home fits you.

At the moment the contract for the purchasing a house in the state of Queensland consists of four document: Form PAMD 30C, Contract for Sale, Form PAMD 27C, and Statement to Buyer. All of these forms are provided and filled in by the agent, but you can fill these in themselves.

PAMD Form 30C is the document which explains to you your rights and responsibilities as a buyer. It is slightly shocking to the unprepared buyers, because on the first page in huge letters it is written – “BEWARE, don’t sign anything until you talk with a lawyer and do a home evaluation”.

In fact, nothing terrible signing of the contract is not threatened, except, of course, buying a home. You can certainly go to a lawyer. Some of my friends did. Lawyer love to talk with them and for $ 300 told them that they are going to buy a hoe. And that the signing of the agreement means that they intend to buy a hoe. Not that it was such a big news for them to pay for it $ 300.

Contract for Sale

The signing of this contract is in General, and there is a proposal that becomes a contract to purchasing a house upon signing by both parties and is binding.

PAMD Form 27C – this is the Declaration from the agent about what and how much he earned on the deal. The good news is that the agent’s Commission is ususually paid by the seller, if the agent is not acting on behalf of the buyer (Buyer’s Agent).

Statement to Buyer is the proof that it was chewed to the buyer, and he agrees with everything and got everything.

All of these documents prepared by the REIQ (Real Estate Institute of Queensland) –the Association of real estate agencies in Queensland and approved by the Queensland Law Society.

The offer, which was made by the buyer, the seller may:

Make – in this case, the agreement for sale enters into force

Reject – in this case, the buyer can make a new offer on this hoe or any other hoe, or

The seller may make a counteroffer, which the buyer can accept or reject, etc., and so as long as both parties agree.
