Buying property at auction in Queensland

Buying property at auction in Queensland differs from other states. Find out what you should consider doing before attending an auction in Queensland.

Buying property at auction in Queensland differs from other countries and even states. In Queensland, there is no cooling off period for buying at auction so it’s important you consider a number of things before bidding on a property at auction.

In Queensland, if you are the successful bidder at an auction you must go through with the contract even if:

  • You change your mind
  • The house does not pass inspections such as building or pest
  • You cannot afford the property.

In other words, the terms of sale will generally mean you are bidding on an unconditional basis.
