Time is of the essence in Queensland which means that a party will generally be in breach of the contract if they do not settle on the settlement date. This will usually allow the other party to terminate the contract and if the buyer is the one that has failed to settle, keep the buyer's deposit. You should let us know as soon as possible if you do not expect to be in a position to settle on the settlement date so that we can request an extension.
The usual costs when buying a property are transfer duty (also known as stamp duty), registration fees with the Titles Registry, legal fees and loan fees. We would be happy to assist you in calculating these fees, just ask.
