About property purchase with us
Buying a property is a complicated legal process; it’s important to understand each step. Here is an outline of a typical property purchase and what we do to make it go smoothly.
Have the legal work taken care of
You are probably aware that buying a property involves a lot of legal paperwork. Making sure you have the correct documents drawn up at the right time is something you should trust to an experienced lawyer.
Having the documents, understanding them, being able to alter them and signing them correctly are all difficult tasks made easy with the help of a legal professional.
A title search, zoning certificate and sewer diagram will also need to be sourced. It is our job to find these documents, review them and make sure you understand them.
We will also look into any developments planned for the area in which you wish to purchase. This ensures your purchase will still be right for you in years to come.
Another part of your purchase will be negotiating with the vendor. A lot of buyers negotiate on the settlement period and early access to the property. This can be an intimidating process which is why we do this negotiating for you.
A pest and building report are standard parts of any property purchase. There is no law that forces the vendor to disclose damage to buildings on the property, so you will need to have them checked.
This is something we can organise to make sure there are no costly surprises waiting for you after settlement.
No-fuss while we keep everything on track
Even for experienced buyers, unforeseen situations arise. With our professional legal team, you will always know what to do next, even if a problem occurs.
- The exchange of contracts
- Stamp duty and other fees
- The payment of your deposit
- Fund transfers from your bank to the vendor
- The cooling-off period
About property sales with us
These are the key things we look after for you during your property sale:
- Preparing the contract of sale
- Reviewing your agency agreement
- Organising the exchange of contracts
- Making sure you receive the deposit
- Repaying any remaining mortgage you have on the property
Before you can list a property on the market, you will need a contract of sale for the buyer, as well as a signed agency agreement outlining the terms between you and your real estate agent.
