To enable a real estate agent to market a residential house in NSW, you will first need instruct a lawyer or conveyancer to prepare a contract for sale of land. A contract for sale of land must contain what are known as "prescribed documents". These are documents that must, by law, form part of any contract. An example of a prescribed document is a planning certificate from the local council.


Once prepared, a contract will (normally) comprise of the following: eCos front pages, eCos standard contract conditions, special contract conditions, title search, plan, dealings, planning certificate, sewer service diagram, service location print and land tax certificate.
