What To Consider When Buying A Property

Some important things for consideration are:

If you have any of these questions or some further questions of your own our friendly staff can help you. We can assist with property purchases and sales all over the Sunshine Coast for house and units.

Once you have decided to buy your property, we can then talk you through all of the important issues to protect your interests in your property including things such as how you will hold that property with your other owner/s.

There is often a cross over of conveyancing, wills & estate and family law. For example, depending on the way you choose to hold your property, either as tenants in common or as joint tenants, this will determine whether or not you need to deal with your share of your property in your Will or not.

Joint tenants mean that you and the other person or people that you have purchased the property with each hold an equal share no matter how many of you there are and upon one of more of you passing away, that persons share would automatically pass to the surviving owners by way of survivorship.

It is common for husband/wife or partners to hold properties as tenants in common as upon the death of one party their interest automatically passes to their surviving partner.

Tenants in common are where two or more individuals have an interest in the property and the share nominated as your share when you purchase the property is the share that you have control of.

Each tenant in common has the right to deal with their share in the property separate from the other co-owners.

This is most often used when purchasing with family members or with blended families. As a tenant in common, your share of any property will then be distributed in accordance with the terms of your Will.
