What is a valid contract for purchase and sale of real property in Fiji ?
A valid contract for the purchase and sale of real property in Fiji must be in writing. Fiji is a common law country and in most instances, the law of contracts is similar to that of England and the U.S. Real estate agents may prepare contracts for the sale and purchase of land. Contracts for the sale of real property do not need to be notarized and may be prepared by real estate agents in Fiji. Denarau Real Estate will prepare your Sales and Purchase Agreement and have it checked by your attorney prior to signing. There are certain requirements for non-residents however, in relation to Minister of Lands Consent that need to be fulfilled prior to a contract becoming valid and our office will work through these requirements with both parties attorney’s to ensure that all is in order prior to your contract becoming unconditional.
