Consumer Protection/Due Diligence
Before you buy a home or vacant residential land, 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. Buying a property is a major investment. Getting your first home can be both exciting and stressful. It is a major decision that takes planning and research. We want you to be happy in your purchase of property and recommend researching the information that may effect any type of property transaction that you may be involved in.
The Department of Mines, Industry Regulations and Safety has a wealth of information and aims to help you identify whether any of these issues could affect you. The information is a starting point only and you may need to seek professional advice to answer some of your questions.
