Settlements for Buyers

Settlement Services for Buyers

If you’re buying a property, we will:

  • Examine  the contract, annexures & special conditions
  • Search Landgate (Title) records to ensure that:
    • The property described in the contract is in fact the property you intend to purchase
    • You are aware of any encumbrances which could affect your enjoyment of the property
    • Any encumbrances that should be removed are removed
  • Ensure that all conditions of the contract are completed on time & to your satisfaction
  • Liaise with your lender to ensure that they will be ready to settle on the due date
  • Ensure no outstanding orders have been placed on the property by government departments
  • Prepare the correct documentation for signing by you
  • Ensure that the contract is lodged & stamp duty (if applicable) is paid within the required timeframes
  • Adjust shire & water rates and ensure they are all paid up to date at the time of settlement
  • Attend settlement on your behalf to ensure that documentation is in order & correct funds are paid to the seller
  • Ensure the property is transferred into your name after settlement
