Why You Need a Settlement Agent as a Property Buyer
Whether you are buying your first home or you’ve been through the buying process before, a settlement agent is essential for all property buyers. Here are some of the main tasks we will handle for you during your home-buying journey.
Review your offer and acceptance. We will review the contract of sale, the offer and acceptance to verify that the property you are buying is the correct one and that all the necessary documents are in order. We are conveyancing professionals, and we can help you understand the contract and make changes where necessary.
Liaise with your financial lender. We will ensure your lending institution is aware of the settlement date and the due date for payments. In addition, we follow up with them to keep you updated on the progress of your finances throughout the process.
Complete the final transfer documents for you. We will attend settlement on your behalf and compile the final documentation for you to sign. Once the settlement is complete, we legally transfer the property to your name. Our service is only over once you are the legal owner of the property, and it is in your name.
Selling Your Home With a Property Settlement Agent in Perth
Whether you are listing your property with a real estate agent or selling it privately, the legal documents you need to finalise the sale remain the same. Our local team has extensive knowledge of the documentation required in Perth. A settlement agent will guide you through the following processes:
Prepare your documentation. We ensure that you have everything you need for a smooth sale. We can support you with drawing up a contract of sale for you and source any missing documents from your local council. Some of the paperwork we can source is title deeds, building plans and planning certificates.
Collect your payment. We will liaise with the buyer’s agent to ensure the buyer pays you on time. Once you have received your payment, you can give us instructions for distributing fees to various parties.
Council rates. As the property owner, you are responsible for paying the water and shire rates up to and including the settlement day. We help to calculate and adjust the rates accordingly and ensure that everything gets paid on time.
