Conveyancing Q&A - Vendor demands more money before settlement

Thursday, August 18, 2016

 

In this week's Conveyancing Q&A, Hilary Jenkins talks about property sharing agreements.

APIA Ask An Expert

I am about to settle on a house.  The agreement is now unconditional.  The vendor is leaving the country immediately after settlement and has now told my solicitor that unless I pay an extra $7,000 to purchase all the chattels off her she will instruct her solicitor not to settle.  Do I have to pay?  What should I do?

 

 

APIA Ask An Expert

 

Your agreement will list the chattels for the property within the agreement and the listed chattels form part of the purchase price. A vendor is therefore obligated to provide the listed chattels to you at settlement which should be in the same state of repair as when you signed your agreement to purchase and so an additional price can’t be put on the chattels listed in the agreement.

If your vendor is wanting you to purchase other chattels she wishes to leave behind, you are not bound to agree to purchase these and they should be removed by the vendor by settlement.

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
