Is it just me or does anyone else think it is crazy how much it costs to download a Strata Report? Before you go to auction you need to download the report for around $280 and then have your solicitor look over it and the contract of sale, his fee is around $380. So the total is approximately $660 just to look at a report for a property that you might not even get at auction. This can become a very expensive exercise. My issue here is not the cost of the solicitor as I know how important they are in the buying process but $280 for an electronic PDF is unreasonable in my opinion.
