We can advise on the conveyancing process and how best to work with your individual circumstances. When buying a property, we help you work through many important questions to ensure you have in place the correct special conditions protecting you in the purchase process, subject to your specific circumstances. You may need to build in some conditions such as:
- finance approval
- building and or pest inspection
- ‘subject to’ the sale of your current residential home or investment property
- sufficient time-frame to obtain money from superannuation funds prior to the settlement date.
The entity the property is to be purchased under, individual as joint tenants or tenants in common, company, trust, superannuation fund, corporate trustee.
You have signed the Contract of Sale and received the Form 1 from the agent!! But what is the Form 1 Vendor’s Statement?
This is the disclosure statement provided on behalf of the vendor to the purchaser and is the start of the cooling off period (48 hours – not including weekends).
This can be a large document and confusing to go through.
By contacting our office as soon as the Form 1 Vendor’s Statement is provided, we can assist you to ascertain if any further enquiries with government departments or third parties is required. This can potentially prevent future issues with the property when going to sell, build or subdivide the land.
When the cooling off period has expired, you are bound to the contract of sale, subject to any other special conditions, such as finance approval or sale of your property.
Choose your Conveyancer prior to selling to ensure you make enquiries relevant to your circumstances.
We can help make this simple. We’ll work through all the possible scenarios to ensure nothing is forgotten when you are preparing to sell. Some key aspects to consider are:
- Do you have a mortgage to be discharged at settlement?
- How long will the bank take to organise the discharge?
- Do you have other parties involved such as the requirement for a withdrawal of caveat?
- Do you have multiple properties secured by one bank, a longer settlement date may be needed to allow for valuations to be obtained?
- Have vendor works been agreed to prior to the settlement date?
- Are you purchasing another property and have a same day settlement for your purchase, will this be possible?
By clarifying all of this upfront, the whole process of selling your property will be more relaxed and you will have more control of the situation.
