The Tasmanian real estate contract defect limit can be confusing. Prior to May 2017 it was 1% on all contracts. Now it can be either a number or percentages. It's best to keep it low as when there is say 5% of the purchase figure on a $500,000 house.

That’s a $25000 defect limit and it can become more difficult to get out of the contract if the defects are greater than the $25000 when it's high as you'll need to get quotes from trades and at the moment it's hard to get any trade to look at repairs because of how busy the construction industry is in Tasmania.

My advice is to try to keep the defect limit to 1% or no greater than $10,000.
