Buying and Selling Property during the G20
Anyone buying or selling a property or a business with a settlement that they expect to take place in the next few months, and also Real Estate Agents involved in arranging such transactions, might want to think about whether it would be wise to avoid any settlement dates in the run up to and just after the G20 Conference that is taking place in Brisbane.
The extent of any disruption to normal working practices and the availability of normal facilities is of course unknown during that time.
There is already a public holiday for the G20 summit on Friday the 14 November. Anyone involved in buying or selling a property or a business might also want to avoid any settlement dates on the 12th and 13th of November and also perhaps on the 17th of November just to be on the safe side.
Time remains of the essence in these Contracts in Queensland and with so much riding on the outcome of those transactions it would perhaps be better to be safe than sorry and avoid those dates for settlement.
