Sales of properties off the plan in New South Wales have increased significantly over recent years, especially in the case of strata lots.

There are additional considerations that a purchaser’s conveyancer must be versed in when acting in relation to a property off the plan, compared with purchases of existing properties. Purchasers of an existing property and off the plan property are covered by consumer protection legislation. However, an off the plan contract is not only a contract to buy real estate, but also a building contract where the vendor additionally agrees to construct and deliver the property with the agreed improvements constructed on it.

This course is divided into 4 modules where you will explore:

  • Getting started – knowing the basics
  • Acting for the vendor
  • Acting for the purchaser
  • Special conditions

On completion of this course you will be able to:

  • Identify common off the plan sales concepts  
  • Draft checklists for advising a client on an off the plan sale contract; and
  • Prepare to advise a client on an off the plan sale transaction

At the end of this on-demand course, you may claim 2 CPD points. Please consult the CPD rules for your State/Territory to ascertain how many CPD points you can claim for private study of audio/visual material during the CPD year.

Due to reporting requirements introduced by the Legal Practice Board of Western Australia on 1 April 2021, practitioners holding WA practising certificates are not currently eligible to claim CPD points for this product.
