Selling a property is not as simple as collecting payment and handing over the keys. On the contrary, the legal side of a property transaction can quickly turn into a nightmare if you don’t know what you are doing, so it pays to have an expert on your side when you are selling a house or property in Sydney or NSW.
When Elmassian Lawyers work with you side by side on a property sale, you can expect a seamless transaction that is done quickly and easily. We take as much work off your hands as possible while ensuring that you get the best deal.
When selling a property, there are several steps that must be completed correctly:
Contract of Sale
Before placing your property on the market, you must have a completed contract of sale which you can present to a potential buyer. This is something that we can help you prepare so that you are able to have this ready before the property is on the market.
Once you have reached an agreement with the buyer and the contract has been amended to reflect the agreement, both parties must sign and exchange the contract. This is usually done by the real estate agent or the conveyancer. We act as your conveyancer to ensure this step goes smoothly and there are no last minute surprises.
Before the new owners move into the property, you must complete the discharge of mortgage and vacate the property. We will work with your bank to successfully organise the discharge of mortgage. We will also put together and organise for you to sign any remaining documents such as the Transfer, so all you have to do is sign the paper.
During the settlement is where you will need to disconnect utilities, and you receive the payment for the property. Our role is this step will be to inform the council of the change of ownership for the utilities, complete the settlement with the buyer (which involves collecting the payment for you) and informing the agent formally so that they can release any deposit they are holding. During all this you get to relax and enjoy while receiving your payment.
As your conveyancer, we work with you every step of the way and do as much as possible so that you can cruise through the transaction without a worry, knowing that everything has been done right.
If you are working with a real estate agent, we are also able to work with them to get this process completed.
