HOW WILL THE INCREASE OF THE VAT RATE EFFECT FIXED PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS?


~~The rate of VAT for Commercial property transactions will be the rate applicable on the date of registration of transfer of the property in the Deeds Registry or the date that any payment of the purchase price is made to the seller, whichever occurs first.

If a deposit is paid and held in trust by the transferring attorney this payment will not trigger the time of supply as it is not regarded as payment of the purchase price at that point in time and under normal circumstances remains in trust until date of transfer.

 

 

 


MUST A RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL (PRE EMPTIVE RIGHT) IN RESPECT OF LAND REALLY BE IN WRITING?

~~In the case of Mokone vs Tassos Properties CC and Another.
Mrs Mokone (Mokone) entered into a written lease agreement with Tassos Properties CC (Tassos), from which premises Mokone conducted a liquor store.  Clause 6 of the lease agreement gave Mokone a right of first refusal / pre-emption).
 

DOES THE ABSENCE OF APPROVED BUILDING PLANS AND AN OCCUPATIONAL CERTIFICATE RENDER A LEASE INVALID?

~~In the case Wierda Road West Properties Pty Ltd (Wierda) vs SizweNtsalubaGobodoinc  (SNG)
Wierda owned a property that was leased by SNG.  Wierda undertook as part of the rental agreement to refurbish the rental premises.  During the course of the refurbishment it was discovered that there were not building plans in respect of a new wing added to the property by the previous owner, nor was there any occupational certificate for such portion.
