Today is Saturday the 1st of October and a house I am buying settles next Friday the 7th (Queensland). Although I have several investment properties, this one is for my family to live in. Yesterday I received an email from my solicitor informing me of the easements on the property and there is a sewerage pipe running the full length of the property just inside the boundary/fence. The house went unconditional a while back so I am concerned that I have no choice but to go ahead with this purchase whether I am concerned about the sewerage pipe or not. The easement was not on the contract. In a phone call with my solicitor she said the sellers were not required to disclose the easement on the contract because it was not on the title and also because the house was built in the 1980's. I would like some advice as to whether I have any cause to cancel this purchase based on the fact that they did not inform me of the easement. Or, is it totally my fault for not getting my solicitor to do a search for easements before I let the contract go unconditional? Also, should I have concerns about there being a sewerage pipe running inside the boundary of the property? Or is it a total 'non-issue'? I have always tried to avoid purchasing properties with such easements in the past and the fact that I am finding out only days before settlement is very frustrating. I appreciate any input.
