Special Condition Settlement Prior Sale

Special Condition Settlement Prior Sale

A Special Condition Settlement Prior Sale has become quite common in real property transactions. This is where the Buyer of a property is relying on the proceeds of the sale of another property to complete the contracted transaction.

The Seller may not agree to this condition and it will depend upon several factors that each party will need to discuss with their Real Estate Agent prior to signing the contract.

You should always consider your financial position prior to executing a purchase contract. A good guide for financial matters can be found on the Australian Government website here.

This clause should be used in conjunction with legal advice pertinent to your situation so if you have any questions regarding your particular circumstances you can contact us here.
