Information for Buyers

Information for Buyers


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.

Victorian Consumer Affairs provides a Due Diligence Checklist for potential buyers which aims to help buyers identify whether any of these issues will affect them. 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 consumer.vic.gov.au/duediligencechecklist.

The checklist may be found at http://www.consumer.vic.gov.au/library/forms/housing-and-accommodation/buying-and-selling-property/due-diligence-checklist.do.
