'Attaching' warning statements by facsimile transmission
Dixon, William M. (2005) 'Attaching' warning statements by facsimile transmission. The Queensland Lawyer, 25(6), pp. 292-293.
Section 366(1) of the Property Agents and Motor Dealers Act 2000 (Qld) (‘PAMD’) provides that a relevant contract must have attached, as its first or top sheet, a statement in the approved form being a warning statement. Failure to comply with this statutory requirement entitles a purchaser to terminate the contract.
The meaning to be attributed to the statutory reference to ‘attached’ will clearly be problematic where documentation is sent by way of facsimile transmission. This was the issue that arose for consideration by Newton DCJ in MNM Developments Pty Ltd v Gerrard  QDC 10.
