    What are the vendor's legal obligations in this case? I'm all for letting the agents sort things out themselves, but wouldn't want to get ourselves in any sort of legal issues.

    Hi Ross,

    Thank you for the info. From my understanding subdivision tax doesn't apply as this has been our family home for ~6 years, but is under 4500m^2. Will have to think about GST though. Funny...
