    Hi All,

    I’m in the process of buying my first QLD property, and have been spooked by the “time is of the essence” situation in QLD. (Because I went 2 days over settlement date on another IP in NSW, and got whacked penalty interest – once bitten, twice shy). Although broker and bank are not incompetent, basically I believe SNAFU is the rule not the exception!
    So my question is, is it accepted practice to negotiate longer settlement periods in QLD?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Swampy30

    You can negotiate a long settlement, ofcourse the vendor has to accept this and hopefully you don’t have competition on the property.

    I have seen contracts with 6 month settlements.

    I would suggest you settle on or before the settlment date, otherwise you’ll get in trouble again.

    Hope this helps

    Hi there, I am an Agent in Noosa and with regards to your question – In Queensland your offer is how you want it i.e. if you wish a 120 day settlement then you can in your offer put that to the Seller – It is however up to the Seller whether he or she accepts it.
