I am looking for peoples help/experiences with inserting good contract clauses for the following:

1. Subject to purchaser acceptable finance.

2. Purchaser has the ability to obtain Town Planning approvals and access to the property for this purpose prior to settlement.

Hi CTrader

At the risk of blowing my own trumpet, I'm in the process of writing a book about property contracts and special conditions which addresses those issues. [Apologies to one and all if this sort of "touting" should go in Caveat Emptor ;-) ]

I also broadly addressed those issues in a talk I gave to the Sydney North Freestylers meeting earlier this month. (see www.freestylers.net.au if you don't know about freestylers). I'm not sure where you're located but I'm considering travelling to each state to give the talk to each city's freestylers group if there's enough interest. *hint hint*

What you should probably do; however, is go see your solicitor, talk through what you want to achieve and get him or her to draft you some special conditions to insert into your contracts which can then be tailored for each specific deal. I can't stress enough the importance of tailoring the clauses to the particular circumstances, state and form of contract in question - especially with regard to "subject to DA approval" style conditions. The requirements and timeframes of the relevant local council will need to be catered for.

Cheers
N.

Hi Nigel!

I for one, would be keen to hear what you might be able to teach. I'm in melbourne so if you do come down, let me know. I can probably promise about 6 people without thinking.

Thank you

Dale

That's right. I haven't seen the latest edition, but I read the earlier edition. With great respect to Rob Balanda, who is a very experienced lawyer, I wasn't overly impressed.

(I must admit though that it's some time since I looked at that earlier edition. my recollection is that generally the clauses were a bit loosely drafted for my tastes...but at the end of the day they probably did the job)

But is is the FIRST clause book, Nigel. ;)

Personally, i'd like someone in Australia to write one similiar to....


Frascona, O. & Reece, K. (1995) The ultimate paper trail. The Real Estate
Book - forms, letters, clauses. Real Estate Books. Colorado.

ISBN 0-941937-02-X




P.S. I'm NOT a lawyer. I just collect real estate books.

It must be that they've just changed the cover from red with a picture to green without...because I've definitely read it about june/july 2000... Perhaps its been "relaunched"?!
