Who has to pay for any house damage caused by Debbie?

first_imgHamilton Island damage after Cyclone Debbie. Photographer: Liam Kidston.AS the impact of Tropical Cyclone Debbie is felt across North Queensland, many who are in the middle of the sale or purchase of property may be wondering: What happens if the cyclone damages the house? Does the sale still go ahead and who pays for the damage?According to the standard terms of the Real Estate Institute of Queensland Contract of Sale, risk transfers to the buyer at 5pm on the next business day. So, if the contract was signed at 2pm on Monday, March 27, the risk transfers to the buyer at 5pm on Tuesday, March 28. If the contract is signed on a Saturday, the risk is transferred at 5pm on the following Monday. “When we say “risk transfers to the buyer” we mean that risk of damage to the property moves from the seller to the buyer, and thus the responsibility for repairs,” says REIQ Townsville Zone Chair, Damien Keyes.“Having said this, the seller still has an obligation to maintain the property right up until settlement.

Be aware, however, that these circumstances are extremely rare. “There is no automatic right to pull out of a contract because the property is damaged or affected by flooding or cyclone after the contract is entered into. “Given the legal complexities involved, buyers and sellers should seek legal advice to determine their rights and responsibilities. “In the event the property is damaged and not destroyed and the buyer elects to proceed with the sale it may delay settlement occurring in the previously agreed time frame while the buyer’s insurers assess the claim and then carry out the repairs, or the parties may agree to settle and carry out the repairs after the fact.”last_img read more
