Toxicology report: It is now possible for a buyer to obtain a toxicology report as a standard condition in the agreement. If this option is selected, the buyer must hire a professional to test the drug`s contamination, primarily methamphetamine. The buyer has 15 working days to organize the test to be performed and to approve the written toxicology report. If necessary, in the event of uncertainty, the revised GST clauses may require a review by buyers with their accountants. The risk of a change in a buyer`s GST position is, quite rightly, a buyer`s responsibility. For the vast majority of home buyers, this will not be a problem. A new requirement means that the 10-day requirement under the Realtors Act (during which the broker deposit must be held) begins as soon as the partner`s commitment is completed. This could mean for sellers that it makes more sense for the seller`s lawyer to keep the down payment. They could then make sure it is available for the bank`s repayment, for example at the time of resolution. Sellers must also ensure that a buyer expressly confirms in writing that there are no requirements to allow the deposit exemption.
For sellers, the new compensation scheme must be carefully considered by a buyer. This means that a buyer must complete the preliminary review for billing purposes at least four or five days before the count. This is not current practice, but it is necessary if they have to increase the right to compensation in a timely manner so as not to influence the expected settlement date. If it is increased late and a creditor challenges the right, the settlement date is postponed. Extending the types of claims is useful for buyers and the revised procedure ultimately favours the buyer. Mortlock McCormack Law employees are available with your purchase and sale contracts.

The ADLS/REINZ agreement is regularly updated to meet changes in legislation and business practices, and the last and tenth editions were finalised and made available to the public at the end of November 2019. Real estate training is a permanent requirement for all those who work in the sector, and is just as important for home buyers and home sellers, especially as they participate for the first time in the store buying or selling a home. With the beginning of another year, we will be dealing with new people, and for some, this will be their first experience of this legal document, and for the majority, it will be their first meeting with the new 10th edition.
We ask people to become familiar with and educate themselves about the changes made to the last edition of the purchase and sale contract. Existing signed agreements are not affected by this amendment. Only new agreements that will be introduced in the new 10th edition of the agreement.
