Local Law No. 17 (Maintenance of Works in Waterway Areas) 2013(PDF, 272KB)
Local Law No. 17 requires a seller of a property affected by the local law to include special conditions in the contract of sale specifying certain matters about the operation of the local law.
Section 15(2) of Local Law No.17 states that a buyer has a right to terminate the contract if the seller does not comply with this requirement. This right no longer applies following State Government legislation.
Since 5 June 2017 a buyer no longer has a right to terminate a contract for the seller's failure to comply with this requirement. However, a buyer may still have a right of termination in respect of a pre-5 June 2017 contract.
