    you can just email or write to the estate agent (something you can prove with a date and time) and withdraw your offer.

    provided it hasnt been accepted yet, its fine to withdraw.

    In tas the offer you sign is a legally binding contract and you will have to pay the owner the deposit you put down on the offer.

    Wow! That's full on. In SA all legitimate offers have to be in writing. A deposit isn't paid until a contract is entered into and even then you have a chance as a buyer to change your mind. I'd imagine there would be a lot of regretful buyers in Tasmania, but I guess it protects the seller more than the buyer.

    Put it back on the agent. He or she hasn't been communicating well with you at all, just call and say you're withdrawing it as he/she has made you wait too long.
