澳洲Australia property is This A Deal Breaker? | Sydney

在澳大利亚


Short side of story.

Contract on home(mortgagee in possession),the bank is apparently making a 15k loss based on my offer.B & P done,and it showed live termites in one of the carport posts,but nowhere else in the house.I asked the bank to do a full termite treatment($1700) and they flatly refuse,on the basis i am getting the home cheap.Thoughts on how to proceed?

Homestart? Good luck with that.

At best it may be worth a one last ditch attempt at treatment cost off the price, I have known these guys to be painful to deal with.

To offer yourself some perspective, what percentage of the purchase price does the bank's 15 K loss represent?

Are you buying a screaming bargain or paying fair market value or somewhere in between?

Give it a bash by all means to get a discount off your buy price from the seller/bank, but reflecting on whether or not it's still a good buy even if you spend the $1700 is worth considering IMO.

Hey Jim

Can give you contact to a licensed fellow who will be much more cost competitive with the cost of the treatment. Send me a PM if interested.

Cheers, Paul

Judging by the location of where he lives, I reckon there'd be more than one or two nice wineries he could go straight to the Cellar Door and select his beverage to celebrate.

Congratulations Jim. :)
