  1. The value of the Mater prize home quoted is based on an independent property valuation obtained by Mater Foundation within 3 months of the start of the marketing campaign for the lottery.  The first prize value includes the value of the land and structure, furniture, additions and any further items which form part of the first prize (for example, visa debit cards, gold, vehicles etc).
  2. The winner acknowledges that the property may be encumbered by easements; restrictive covenants or have ongoing development covenants that may affect the property or its ongoing use.  The winner agrees to accept the property subject to any such covenant or restriction and will sign any document required in order to give effect to any ongoing responsibilities or covenants.
  3. Where the prize is land in Australia, foreign (as defined by the Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Act 1975) winners may require approval at the winner’s own cost from the Australian Treasurer to receive the prize on offer. Mater Foundation may assist in this process. If the application is not approved or not approved within a reasonable period of time, the winner forfeits the prize, and Mater Foundation will draw a new winner. Mater Foundation is not responsible for payment of any application fees, taxes or levies imposed as a consequence of acquisition of land by a foreign person.
  4. Winners agree to provide all necessary information and reasonable assistance to Mater Foundation and/or its legal representatives to enable the legal transfer of the prize home to the winner.
  5. Winners accept prize homes in their “as is where is” state as at the date that the winner takes possession of the property. 
  6. Mater Foundation will arrange and pay for costs associated with the transfer of title to the property into the winner’s name.  Mater Foundation will pay transfer duty, registration fees and legal costs to prepare transfer documentation.  Winners acknowledge that, while Mater Foundation will give possession of the property to the winner shortly after the draw, transfer of title to the property is in line with timeframes of the relevant state land titles offices.  The property is at the risk of the winner from the date that possession is provided, even if title has not been legally transferred. On taking possession of the property, all costs, taxes and levies imposed on the property from that point in time are the sole responsibility of the winner.
  7. Winners will be notified by mail and results will be published in the public notices section of The Australian in the week following the draw and at on the day of the draw.
