The REAA has developed two important guides to ensure buyers and sellers of residential property are provided with essential and accurate information about the buying and selling process:

Residential Property Agency Agreement Guide
Residential Property Sale and Purchase Agreement Guide

These guides, are available from the REAA website and are printed in a number of languages: English, Chinese, Hindi,Korean, Maori, Samoan and Tongan.

Salespeople must give sellers a copy of the Residential Property Agency Agreement Guide before the seller signs an agency agreement. The salesperson must also receive the sellers signed acknowledgement that they have received the guide.

Salespeople must also provide a copy of the Residential Property Sale and Purchase Agreement Guide to both buyers and sellers before they sign a sale and purchase agreement for a residential property. The salesperson must also receive their signed acknowledgement that they have received the guide.

We also recommend another useful buyers and sellers guide provided by the REAA – Get Smart Before Buying and Selling Propertywhich is also available from the REAA website.
