    Quick reference only. Always check with legal advice.

    SA one isn't quite right.

    Unlike other states that use a percentage, we can do any amount of deposit we please (say $1000 or $10000), but when I've cooled off on one of my own purchases it was prior to the deposit being due. Therefore I exited with zero outlay.

    Should also point out that these apply to standard contracts, but could be contracted out.

    Great summary!

    I think the Victorian details may be slightly incorrect. I don't believe that legal advice waives the cooling off period any more (it did once, but I recall it being changed and a glance at several recent purchase contracts appears to confirm this).
