    Trying to find out the legalities around these - as per usual all protections written in for seller but agent(s) were asserting that it is not legally binding on the buyer, however nothing on the one pager notes this.

    Is anyone able to explain for me how these work? We've found a property we'd like to put an offer on, waiting to hear back from broker and builder. Agent was pushing for EOI rather than contract. (actually had that happen at to houses today - same chain different offices)

    Unusual, normally put on a contract. Happy to look at a doc for you if you send it through to my email and will respond through here sans identifying info

    If they won't accept a contract offer, you are wasting your time imo. Might be better keeping it under wraps and attending the auction. As Rolf said, otherwise you will be setting the reserve.
