Nadine is detail oriented, practical and direct.

Engaging with her is easy, productive and produces clear results.

Nadine was on time for our meeting which is really important to me.  She was able to explain a variety of options regarding my situation and now I have a clear direction moving forward.  I highly recommend Nadine.

Always available and extremely knowledgeable…not sure how this messy transaction would have gone through without you!  Very lucky to have been referred to you by the Agent! Cheers!

Selling your home...

The Contract

Once you’ve made the decision to sell your property, one of the first tasks is to have the Contract for Sale of Land drawn up.

The contract will include not only the legal terms and conditions of sale, but will also specify what items are included or excluded from the sale, and any other special requirements you might have like a longer or shorter settlement than usual, or perhaps that the contract be conditional upon another contract for you to buy your next property. There are a lot of ways that a contract can be varied, so it’s important to discuss your situation in detail with The Real Estate Lawyer.

You also need to know your disclosure responsibilities, as failing to disclose certain things can lead you into a lot of trouble.

The Deposit

Once a purchaser has been found and the contract has been signed and is legally binding, then a deposit is usually paid by the purchaser and is usually held in the trust account of the selling agent.

Settlement

Settlement (the day that the money is exchanged for the property and keys handed over) is scheduled in accordance with the contract, and is usually 6 weeks after signing contracts. During the wait for settlement your lawyer/conveyancer will liaise with your bank in relation to releasing any mortgage held on the property. In this time you should arrange disconnection of electricity and other services.

Before settlement the purchase price will be adjusted to reflect the council rates, water rates and strata fees that need to be shared between the parties. There may be other adjustments, based on the Contract for Sale.

Once settlement takes place, the real estate agent will be be authorised to release the deposit to you, less their fees.
