I am one of two Executors. The property that I reside in is a Deceased Estate. Last Friday, a buyer signed the contract from the real estate agent last week, putting down ten percent deposit last Friday, 9 November 2018 agreeing to a 12 week settlement and a no cooling off period. The property had been passed in at Auction end of August this year and went to Private Treaty. The buyer then left for overseas and is still there. He instructed his solicitor to have withdrawn from our conveyancing contract, the clause that can permit the seller, (vendors), access to the buyer's deposit money if there was a need for the vendor to require a deposit for their own property. Our conveyancer never advised us of this, and I was only informed of this yesterday when I phoned our conveyancer to advise him that I had agreed to the buyer's offer. The settlement is 12 weeks. The buyer then sought through his solicitor who instructed our conveyancer, who contacted me for permission for a DA and Surveyor, to which I said, yes. My concern here is, with the buyer overseas communicating through his solicitor to our conveyancer, is there any possibility that we as vendors may have been swindled. Is the fact that the buyer has requested DA and Surveyor, as well as putting down ten percent deposit signs that the buyer is good for the purchase of our property. This is the only place I have lived for the past twenty years, and have no other income except for a low income support benefit from Centrelink. I cannot obtain a home loan from any bank due to the nature of the benefit I receive, not even a personal loan. The other executor wanted to sell and I was given a right to reside indefinitely, by my now late mother in her Will. I am told that my right to reside here would not stand up in Court should the property have ended up in the Courts for them to appoint a Trustee and the Courts own real estate agent. As I had given up my right to reside at this residence, the other executor declined to consider giving me an actuary amount in lieu of my giving up my right to reside here. He also declined to pay me the difference between the buyer's offer and the upper limit of the price guide for this property as we were asked to reduce the price of this property three times. The originally price guide for this property, I now know, was only given as a "sweetener" to gain the selling rights to the property, which I believe was misleading to begin with. Now in just over eight hours time, I will be signing the contract that will legally bind me into selling this house. I do not know what to do from here or where I will go. Thanks. As I post this thread it is now 0250 am Thursday 15 November 2018.
