Frequently asked questions

The cooling-off period for your purchase expires at the end of the second clear business day after:
- the contract was made if the purchaser received the Form 1 prior to making the contract, or
- the Form 1 has been served on the purchaser if the purchaser received the Form 1 after making the contract. By law, a Form 1 must be served on a purchaser of real property in South Australia.
Sometimes a purchaser may choose to waive their cooling off rights. To do so requires the preparation of a Form 3 is required and the Form 3 must be certified by a legal practitioner. Eckermann Lawyers is experienced in the preparation of Form 3s and in explaining clearly to clients, the implications of waiving their cooling off rights.
