Guide to buying a property
Once an offer to purchase a property has been accepted by your seller, ask your agent to send a copy of the draft contract to our office. We will then discuss the contract with you, including possible structural and developmental issues, unfair terms, inclusions and dealings. Once we are comfortable that you understand the contract and your obligations, you can then decide on your method of exchange.
agree on price
You will negotiate with the agent and seller (vendor) to reach an agreed price. Once agreed, email us the contract to review.
TO COOL OFF, OR NOT COOL OFF
Discuss with us the two exchange options below to determine the best option for you.
Exchange contracts with a five or ten day cooling off period. Conduct various inspections needed, and obtain finance approval. Property is taken off the marketing once dated.
Conduct all various inspections and obtain finance approval, then exchange contracts with no cooling off period. Property remains on the market (other purchasers can still offer & exchange) until dated.a
searches, finance & enquiries
Once exchanged, we conduct all necessary searches of government departments, ensure that your bank has processed all documents and prepare draft documents for settlement.
VERIFYING OF IDENTITY (VOI)
Once the contract is binding, we will organise to have you sign the required government forms and VOI.
All finance documents to be prepared and signed.
We will discuss funds and final physical inspections.
PRIOR TO COMPLETION, YOU SHOULD CONSIDER:
Structural, home owners, landlords, title.
Contact the selling agent prior (at least one week) before settlement to book in your final inspection.
Congratulations, you have settled your purchase! We will call you as soon as you are settled.
