Thinking of buying an apartment?
Contract reviews and legal advice
Building inspection reports
Owners Corp inspections
Buying an apartment is a huge financial commitment so it’s crucial to make sure you’ve done your research on your potential purchase to uncover any red flags, hidden costs or unwanted surprises.
Most apartments are strata titled which is a combination of private property (the apartment) and common ownership (the building, common areas and facilities) managed by an owners corporation.
This combination of private and common property can mean some additional risk including:
- Costly maintenance problems
- Unresolved construction defects
- Litigation involving the owners corporation
- Cladding orders
- Poor building and finance management
- Noise and liveability issues
- Community issues
We’ve pulled together a simple apartment buying checklist to help you with your apartment buying journey.
We recommend you get qualified experts in your state to help you with owners corporation and building inspections, conveyancing and legal services.
