You will also have to nominate a settlement date and state how you will pay for the land. Where applicable you may also require the insertion of any special conditions associated with the sale.

There is no limit to the conditions that may be placed on a contract however the vendor is not obligated to accept these conditions. Examples of general conditions include which party is required to pay any rates, taxes or fees levied, what happens if either party does not go through with the contract and what happens if settlement is delayed.

You can protect your interests by crossing out any terms that do not suit you or adding any suitable terms and then ensuring that all parties initial any changes to confirm that an agreement has been reached.

It is recommended that legal advice should be sought when dealing with legal contracts this may be from a solicitor or conveyancer.
