Land Sales Act 1984: The time limit for an application for exemption
Dixon, William M. (2004) Land Sales Act 1984: The time limit for an application for exemption. The Queensland Lawyer, 25(3), pp. 120-121.
The decision of Wilson J in Wan and Ors v NPD Property Development Pty Ltd  QSC 232 also concerned the operation of the Land Sales Act 1984 (Qld) (‘the Act’).
As previously noted, s 8(1) of the Act provides that a proposed allotment of freehold land might be sold only in certain circumstances. An agreement made in contravention of s 8(1) is void. Section 19 allows a purchaser (and others) to apply for an exemption from any of the provisions of Pt 2. By s 19(6), notwithstanding s 8, a person may agree to sell a proposed allotment if the instrument that binds a person to purchase the proposed allotment is conditional upon the grant of an exemption. By s 19(7) an application for exemption must be made ‘within 30 days after the event that marks the entry of a purchaser upon the purchase of the proposed allotment.’
