Selling a Property
Review the fine print
Before listing your property for sale with a real estate agent there a few things you will want to speak to us about to ensure you have the best outcome during this transaction. Once a buyer has signed a contract to purchase your property and paid a deposit, your agent will deliver the contract to you either by hand, post, fax or email, we recommend that you engage our firm to review the contract.
Before listing your property for sale with a real estate agent, speak to us about:
making sure that any Warning and Disclosure Statements will be satisfactorily completed
the inclusion of fixtures and fittings
any alterations you have made to the property
the date of settlement and, if relevant, the timing of any new home purchase.
any special conditions required
disclosing outstanding liabilities and the implied warranties in the contract when selling a townhouse or unit.
You also need to make sure you have installed a compliant fire alarm and safety switch.
Up to the date of settlement, we will:
diarise dates when all conditions are due (e.g. Finance and Building and Pest Approval) and follow up with buyers solicitors
check that all documents you are required to sign are in order
ensure all outstanding government and council charges such as water rates and land tax have been paid
arrange for the repayment and legal discharge of any mortgage on your property
ensure you are paid in full for the property.
