Some hints when purchasing, get your solicitor to insert clauses that: 1. Obligate the vendor to maintain a certificate of currency on the building until settlement. Reason, in QLD this is a grey area. So make sure the vendor keeps the potato until settlement - saves you putting a cover note on it. 2. Request permission to advertise the property for rent when the property goes unconditional. This includes signage at property and Internet advertising. 3. Request permission to conduct one Open For Inspection each week and one private viewing each week after unconditional and prior to settlement. If renovations or quotes are required, request permission to enter for purpose of obtain quotes.
