When should Sydney buyers arrange a Building and Pest Inspection?
When you purchase a property via private treaty and exchange contracts there is usually a 5 day ‘cooling–off’ period. During this time, you have the option to cancel the contract or pull out of the deal. Many Sydney buyers arrange a Building and Pest inspection during the cooling off period. However, it is recommended that you arrange the inspection before you exchange contracts . As soon as you know you are interested in the property and plan to proceed. This gives you time to understand the building and in certain situations it may be appropriate to adjust the offer based on the report findings. Failure to procceed will normally cost you 0.25% of the purchase price, which equates to $2,500 on a $1M property.
A cooling–off period does not apply if you buy a property at auction or exchange contracts on the same day as the auction after it is passed in.
Sometimes the agent may request that you agree to a ’66W’. This waives your right to a cooling off period. In this case the inspection must be done before exchange on the property.
Often Sydney property vendors arrange Building Inspections and Pest inspections with our firm. We provide copies of these reports to prospective buyers at a discounted rate.
