What you need to know before buying a residential property

Before you buy a home, you should be aware of a range of issues that may affect that property and impose restrictions or obligations on you, if you buy it.

This checklist aims to help you identify whether any of these issues will affect you. The questions are a starting point only and you may need to seek professional advice to answer some of them.

You can find links to organisations and web pages that can help you learn more by visiting the Consumer Affairs website or download the Due Diligence Checklist at www.pennisi.com.au by selecting “Due Diligence Checklist” under the “Buyers” tab.

A link has also been provided below for your convenience.


Should you have any questions or need help with finding your next home please feel free to contact our office on 9379 5616 and we would be happy to assist in any way.
