Buying a Property – the Image Property Buying Guide
Buying a property is a complicated series of agreements that must be made in order to complete a sale.
For the first time buyer, negotiating this process can be a bit of a minefield, so we have put together a step by step guide to make sure your purchase goes smoothly.
Before making any form of offer on a property, you must have pre-approved finance in place. This means that you need to approach your bank or a lender, and you may wish to employ the services of a mortgage broker to make sure you are getting the best deal.
You will need to have a deposit ready. Usually, this is 5% of the property purchase price, but it may be negotiable. The more deposit you have, the less your mortgage will be – but don’t forget to have extra ‘wiggle room’ in your budget for costs.
Once you have put an offer in, the settlement date will be advised. This is usually around 30 days from the offer date, and when you will be expected to start paying the mortgage. At the offer stage, you will need to appoint a solicitor or a conveyancing clerk – in Queensland the offer must be made in writing and presented on a contract, which your solicitor/conveyancing clerk can help you with.
If your offer is accepted, you are immediately bound to the contract. Usually within the first two weeks, your bank or lender will ask for an independent valuation of the property, and it is after the offer is accepted that you arrange building and pest inspections.
The date that that the offer is accepted becomes the contract date. 1 day after the contract date, at 5pm, you assume risk on the property, so you must arrange insurance to protect it.
As with all contracts, there is a cooling off period of 5 days from contract date – but be aware that you will have to pay a penalty if you pull out – usually around 0.25% of the purchase price.
