what is buying 'off the plan'?

When you buy property off the plan, you agree to purchase something that is in the process of being built. That’s where the term ‘off the plan’ comes from – you are buying a property based off the ‘plans’ prepared by the builder or developer.

Buying a brand new property is exciting. However, purchasing something off the plan carries more risk than buying a property that has already been built. We recommend you contact our office before you sign the contract so we can explain everything to you and make sure the deal is fair before you commit to the purchase.

We've got you covered

Three key things we will do for you when you are buying a property off the plan

commencing your matter

We will undertake a detailed review of the contract and provide you with a letter of advice.

If we need to, we will negotiate with the developer's solicitor to have changes made to the contract before you sign.

 Our friendly lawyers will explain the conveyancing process to you.

We will guide you through paying the deposit and signing the contract.

progressing your matter

We will keep you updated on the progress of the development, including when you can expect to settle.

 Our legal team will complete all your conveyancing paperwork, including any relevant application for the First Home Buyers Assistance Scheme.

 We will process your stamp duty application, advise you of the amount of stamp duty payable and remind you of the due date for payment.

finalising your matter

In the final stages of your matter, we will prepare the settlement figures and book settlement with your lender.

 We will let you know what payments are required at settlement and talk to your lender about making those payments on your behalf.

 We will advise you when settlement is completed and, if you purchase a house or unit, let you know where you can collect the keys.

Cost of buying property

the cost of buying property

Several costs are payable upfront when you purchase property. These are on-off fees and include:

1. Transfer duty or stamp duty

2. Bank fees and, if you are borrowing more than 80% of the value of your home, Lenders Mortgage Insurance (LMI)

3. Building and pest inspection and other searches

4. Legal or conveyancing fees.

5. Transfer and mortgage registration fees.

When you are the owner of the property, there will also be ongoing costs to pay, including council and water rates, utilities like electricity and gas, as well as maintenance and repair costs for the home.

It’s worth adding these costs into your budget so you can calculate how much you’ll need to save to buy and manage a home.

additional information for buyers

There's a lot to think about when you are purchasing property. We try to explain the process in simple terms, to make the conveyancing process easy for buyers.
stamp duty for new property

calculating stamp duty

For most buyers, paying stamp duty is a requirement when purchasing property. In addition, stamp duty is often a large expense, adding up to more than $20,000.00 for the purchase of a property valued at $600,000.00.

We can advise you on the amount of stamp duty payable for your purchase.

interest rates and mortgages

Buying a property is often a steep learning curve. Getting through the conveyancing process, preparing a budget for your house and understanding the terms of your mortgage can be confusing and overwhelming. We can help with all of the above!

When thinking about your home loan, it's good to get your head around the basics. Thinking about how the bank determines the interest payable on a mortgage is a good starting point.

Property law advice for a low fixed rate

Are you a foreign buyer?

Foreign persons may buy brand new residential properties in Australia. This includes:

  • A dwelling under construction (off the plan purchase);

  • A recently built dwelling that has not been previously sold as a dwelling and has not been previously sold or lived in; or

  • Land that has been subdivided for the first time (if you build a house on the land within a certain period of time).

The law on foreign ownership of property in Australia is complex. Usually a foreign person needs to obtain approval from the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) before they can purchase property in Australia.

It is very important for foreign buyers to seek legal advice before they sign a contract. We can provide advice on the steps to take to purchase property in Australia.
