Here is an overview of how we will work with you during the purchasing process.
Have the paperwork, contracts and certificates explained
When you purchase a property, there are detailed contracts you will need to read and sign. Our lawyers will look over these for you, explain the details and make any adjustments necessary.
You will also need to get a full title search, zoning certificate and sewer diagram of the property. We can locate these for you, review them and speak to you about anything relevant. It’s also a good idea to look into any future development plans in the area that might affect your purchase. We do this for you as well to make sure your purchase will be a good long term fit.
There may be things you would like to negotiate with the vendor, like a shorter settlement period, what exactly comes with the property, rubbish removal, or anything damaged you would like repaired. We do this negotiating for you to make sure you get the best value for your money.
The vendor does not have to disclose any information to you about damage to buildings on the property. For this reason, we will advise you on the inspections and reports you should get done before settlement. These typically include a pest and building report which we can help organise for you through a trusted inspector.
Have everything looked after for you
To make sure everything goes smoothly, we oversee:
- The exchange of contracts
- Stamp duty and all other associated fees
- The payment of your deposit
- Fund transfers from your bank to the vendor
- The cooling-off period
If you are purchasing your first property, you will probably be unsure about the process at first. Our job is to explain precisely what you need to do and when you need to do it. This way, you can relax knowing that everything is under control.
Here is an outline of what we do for you during the selling process.
- Prepare your contract of sale
- Read and advise you on the agency agreement
- Facilitate the exchange of contracts and make sure the deposit is paid to you
- Make sure any mortgage you have on the property is discharged appropriately
Before a property can go on the market, it is a legal requirement to have a contract of sale drawn up for buyers to view. You will need this before your real estate agent can list the property for sale.
You will also need to sign an agency agreement before a real estate agent can put your property on the market. We will look over this and make sure it is fair and meets your needs.
As well as all this, we deal with anything unexpected that comes up.
The Rafton Family Lawyers Parramatta office is located at 2/12 Macquarie St, Parramatta NSW.
