Hi all, I've been lurking on this site for a while now rushing to get as much info as possible in a short period of time for my first home purchase, and this is my first post. I would really appreciate any clarification on my issue. Basically I have purchased a house in Adelaide, my settlement is mid next month so I asked the realtor when I could arrange a pre-settlement inspection. He said that I can't have one as I needed to state it as a condition in my contract. I had no idea! I had my contract as subject to building inspection but not pre-settlement inspection From reading the forums here it sounded to me like pre-settlement inspections were standard, but the realtor told me it was standard in other states but not south australia. Is that true? This realtor has been a real slimeball and has ruined my first home buying experience so I don't know what to believe from him. Thanks so much!
