Section 173 Agreement Removal
Dear Guest, Thanks for your informative article re: Section 173 Accords. I have a question you may not know. I`m in the process of buying a student apartment (one bedroom) in Hawthorn, which has an S173 in place. My wife is a real estate manager, and we thought we could do it ourselves as long as we only rented it to students. Existing property managers (Student Housing Australia) say we can`t do that because we don`t have a student management plan with the council and we should actually use it. Do you know if it`s good or are you trying to scare us, to use them? This means that if you do not agree with the terms of the agreement, you must apply to the Council. Different councils may have different procedures for amending section 173 of the agreement. It can be difficult if there are a lot of people who are part of the agreement. This can happen when the country has been divided.
Everyone must either accept the amendment or a landowner can ask VCAT for the proposed amendment to be evaluated. If it is VCAT, the Council must support the amendment. If the Commission does not support it, it cannot be heard by the VCAT. The amendment must also be tendered. If VCAT accepts the amendment, the agreement may end. An agreement is like any other contract. It must be negotiated and agreed upon by all parties involved. Sometimes an agreement under Section 173 may be required through a planning scheme or authorization. If this is the case, it must be completed before beginning an evolution. But everyone still has the right to negotiate the agreement. It is a good idea to have a lawyer represented in these negotiations.
Section 173 Agreements may seem complicated, but they can give you some certainty about what you can do with your property. To make sure they don`t hinder your development, it`s important to get good advice before entering one. In the section 173 agreement, it may end. Typically, it`s when something happens or on a given date. If it does not say when it will end, it can only be lifted if anyone party to the Agreement agrees to amend it. More than 3,000 properties in the Shire of Nillumbik have a Section 173 agreement listed on the title. It is therefore important for landowners (and their representatives) to know whether or not a Section 173 agreement affects their property and, if so, understand their obligations under the agreement. Independent legal advice may be required to gain a full understanding of the Section 173 agreement.
If the country is divided, parts of the country can be sold or transferred. If that happens, the agreement will remain intact, but anyone who buys part of the divided country will also be part of the agreement. Rose Lawyer and Conveyancers are experts in all types of real estate business. Whether you need a Section 173 agreement or want to change the agreement for a property you`ve purchased, Rose Lawyers can help. Some Section 173 agreements allow landowners to obtain Council approval to amend certain requirements of the agreement. This possibility is generally provided for in the agreement by the use of the term “unless the Council agrees in advance.” It may be necessary to seek independent legal advice to confirm that this possibility applies to the section 173 agreement that concerns your country. If your agreement offers this opportunity, landowners will have the opportunity to apply for approval, which the Commission calls “different consents.” This fact sheet is accompanied by a consent application form.
