Can I ask a question regarding GST on a property sale please? It is an unusual situation. The property in question is an old 1860's school in SA, on 2 acres, that my elderly parents bought in 2000. They lived in the building for seventeen years, with power connected to the block, and water provided and paid for through their immediate neighbour's supply, with no sewerage or plumbing, just irrigation and garden hoses. The property is zoned Primary Production, but assessed on their Council Rates as having a residence. As the building became unsafe and delapidated over the years, I had to move them into a rental unit in 2017, to be closer to facilities. They are still paying rates, however, water and power have been disconnected. The immediate farmer neighbour has offered to buy the property, with the view to use the school building as shelter for his sheep. As he owns the adjacent property surrounding the block, he will eventually subdivide, demolish the school and build a new residence on it. So basically, we are selling for the land value. He has offered $77,000, which my parents are happy to accept, taking into account that it will cost approximately $30,000 to demolish and clean up the block. Before we accept his offer, as a private sale, I need to know if GST will be payable on the sale, that we would then have to apply on top of the purchase price, so my parents don't lose $7000 of the sale price, as it was their primary place of residence for seventeen years. According to the ATO website, GST is payable for sale of land by the vendor. The neighbour has finance available to fund the purchase. He also has a conveyancer ready who is a family friend. Can I ask him to pay for and use his conveyancer to draw up the contract and source the Title documents and paperwork required, on top of the purchase price as part of the negotiations, as we have yet to agree to his offer? I would really appreciate your consideration as I am in Queensland and my parents are in SA and relying on me to sell the property to the neighbour, without an agent. I had three agent appraisals done, when I was over in February. They resulted in approximate valuations of $100,000, minus demolition costs, ultimately not worthwhile for us. Thank you so much for your time.
