Hi 

I am in the process of purchasing a property with a standard OTP from the agent . I have obtained finance , paid the deposit and met all of my obligations to the contract. The seller however has a dispute with the HOA regarding her settlement amount in levies. It will be 5 months without any progress. Despite numerous pleas by the agent and conveyancers to come to a resolution she simply will not pay.

Is she not obligated to settle the HOA and rates acocunts regardless of settlement amount? And can she inevitably cancel the sale by not settling with the HOA

I do not have the time or energy to start again with the property search and finance application. The property was very specific to my needs.

Kind Regards

Clayton
