Real Estate Forms

If you are looking to represent yourself in the buying, selling or renting a home or commercial property in Western Australia, the life certainly becomes a whole lot easier once you have the real estate forms designed for it. So please allow me to point you in the right direction, as to your options and if at any stage you would like to consider utilising the full services of a Mandurah Real Estate Agency then Halls Head Real Estate are here to help you.

Residential Home Sales and Property Management Forms

There are five different sources from which you can obtain or purchase these forms from.

Firstly and obviously there are real estate agents and while they are have all the paperwork, you can expect them to be reluctant to sell or supply them to you, but not for the reasons you would expect. You see their paperwork is commonly pre-printed with the name of their firm on it and as such they may reluctant to rely on a third party to remove their firm’s name from the paperwork before using it. Also add to that, that there are copyright and misrepresentation issues with regard to a non Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA) member using paperwork designed and created for the use of their members.

As a second choice would be to contact the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA) directly. As they are the direct supplier of real estate forms to real estate agents they may not be as concerned about non REIWA members using their forms, as their members are of breaching their copyright of REIWA.

Your third choice would be to obtain or purchase your forms from a Settlement agency or Law firm. It is unlikely that their forms would have been printed by REIWA and such this removes many of the issues associated with a non REIWA member using a REIWA form. Both a settlement agency and a law firm can also advise on the common pitfalls of representing yourself and can offer you some guidance in that area and are more likely to have sales paperwork and very unlikely to have residential property management forms.

Your fourth choice is a traditional one, in that historically people have been able to gain residential home sale and property management forms from their local news agency or stationery store and in some cases this it still true. If you happened to live in Mandurah, Western Australia for example, I know you could walk in to Woodleys News Agency and purchase most of the residential real estate forms that you would require. I do however expect that both news agencies and stationery stores will phase out the selling of such forms, as more and more people are choosing to download their forms from the website of the Department of Commerce. As there is no charge to gain forms from them and being able to download them from your own home is very convenient.

Commercial Sales and Leasing Forms

As this field is more specialised than home sales and rentals there are fewer options and it is likely you will only find three different sources from which to gain your commercial forms from.

Firstly as with home sales and renting, real estate agents have commercial sales and leasing forms, however as agencies have them pre printed and REIWA has the forms stamped with “For Use of REIWA Members” supplying them to third parties opens a legal liability for the agency. In that there are copyright and misrepresentation issues with regard to a non Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA) member using paperwork designed and created for the use of its members.

As a second choice would be to contact the Real Estate Institute of Western Australia (REIWA) directly. As they are the direct supplier of real estate forms to real estate agents they may not be as concerned about non REIWA members using their forms, as their members are of breaching the copyright or REIWA.

Your third choice would be to obtain or purchase your forms or a templated version of them from a Law firm.

Alternatively you could contact the Department of Commerce and ask them whether they have any Commercial Sales and Leasing forms, however I suspect they limit this supply service to the more commonly requested home sales and rental paperwork.
