Victorian Land Contracts guides practitioners advising those who are involved in property transactions through all stages of the contractual process. Commencing with contractual formation and covering formation, pre-conditions, formal requirements and parties, the work will then move to a discussion of vitiating factors including misrepresentation, misleading or deceptive conduct, unconscionability and mistake etc. A detailed coverage of all the Terms of the standard contract will follow and encompass execution of the contract, warning notices, particulars of sale with an in-depth analysis of the 40 General Conditions. Victorian Land Contracts will conclude with post-completion issues including merger, registration of the transfer and other post settlement matters
