“…. it is of significant importance that counsel of such expertise and experience in property and commercial law as Mr Lloyd and Mr Rimmer have prepared this comprehensive … and detailed annotation of the provisions of the Sale of Land Act by reference to both authority, conveyancing practice, commentary and standard or usual forms of contracts and other documents.  This approach renders the operation and application of … the Act … readily accessible ... (They) are to be congratulated for their contribution … which must be an essential reference and resource for courts and tribunals, counsel and solicitors practicing in property and commercial law in Victoria.” - Foreword to First Edition, The Honourable  Justice Clyde Croft.

For the first time in Victoria since the Sale of Land Act came into operation over 60 years ago in 1962, Sale of Land Act Victoria First Edition provided a comprehensive analysis of, and commentary on, all aspects of this significant piece of legislation, by barristers David Lloyd and William Rimmer.

The work covers:

  • Sale and subdivision
  • Off-the-plan contracts
  • Arbitrators
  • Deposits
  • Terms contracts
  • Cooling off
  • Section 32 statements
  • Insurance
  • Public auctions

The Second Edition updates this body of work to include: 

  • Significant amendments to the Act made by the Sale of Land (Amendment) Act 2019 relating to "sunset clauses" under off-the plan contracts, terms contracts, rent-to-buy arrangements, land banking schemes and the new offence of knowingly concealing a material fact concerning land being sold;
  • Plethora of decisions on the legislation handed down since the first edition was published in 2015; and
  • Expanded commentary across many aspects of the book. 

Sale of Land Act Victoria is an invaluable guide to the Act, for legal practitioners involved in property transactions and disputes arising from such transactions and for other professionals such as real estate agents and conveyancers.
