The depths of winter are always a time for reflection on where we live! No doubt, many an interstate move has been inspired by the plunging temperatures of a winter that just went on too long (Can anyone in VIC or TAS hear me?!) Others are induced by the thought of colder temperatures and the experience of all the seasons in the full… Whatever the motivation, recently across our national practice, we have seen an upswing in the number of purchasers buying interstate.
This has raised the concern of a number of practitioners about just how little some potential buyers know when they buy interstate, mainly because they rely on the assumptions that the rules in their home state apply elsewhere. So let’s call that Myth 1.
Honestly, the list of differences near outweighs the similarities, save as to, the result at the end of the process.
