    When signing a contract for sale, what's the cooling off period as I would like to change some of the dollar values as sales commission and put in an asking price as not listed only example?

    Are you selling or buying?

    Generally, sellers in Victoria do not have the benefit of exercising a cooling off period. Once the seller has signed the sale contract, they generally cannot withdraw from the sale.

    If you want to make amendments to the contract for sale, make the amendments ASAP with your conveyancer and before the contract has been provided to potential purchasers.

    I'm afraid I don't quite understand what this means, and what it is you are proposing to do.
