Cooling off period

All residential sale contracts in Queensland are subject to a five days cooling off period (except auctions). In this time period, the buyer can still cancel the sale contract.

If the buyer chooses to cancel during the cooling-off period, the seller:

  • may deduct a penalty of up to 0.25% of the purchase price from the deposit
  • will need to refund the rest of the deposit within 24 hours.
