Stamp Duty Reforms in NSW for First Home Buyers

This segment is all about the stamp duty reforms for first home buyers in NSW that are due to commence 16 January 2023 as part of the NSW 2022/2023 budget recently announced. We discuss some practical examples based on the current tax thresholds as shown on the nsw government website and whether this may be a good option for first home buyers. All first home buyers contemplating buying their first home in the near future should listen up.

The pivotal homes disaster. Where to from here?

In this segment we discuss the recent collapse of Pivotal Homes, and what impact this may have on the property market and construction in Qld and elsewhere, and what consumers need to know for their build contracts with Pivotal Homes. Take a listen!

Should developers sell off the plan without an approval?

In this segment we discuss whether a developer should market and sell a project off the plan and have buyers sign contracts, and pay deposits, without first obtaining an approval. This issue recently was highlighted on the Gold Coast by various industry people and it is a controversial issue. Without further changes being made to the Qld legislation, buyers must ensure that they understand the nature of an off the plan contract, the risk associated with buying off the plan, and how those risks can and are to some extent mitigated by consumer protection laws. For anyone wanting to buy off the plan this is a must to listen to. Priala Legal are experts in off the plan having had experience in this area since 2004 acting for both developers and buyers. Please give us a call if you are about to sign an off the plan contract.
