Frequently Asked Questions


In an effort to help with some of the simpler more general questions you may have, the following may prove helpful in getting a better understanding of the processes you may face.

A settlement agent is a licensed professional that facilitates the transfer of ownership during a real estate transaction, ensuring that all legal documentation and financial obligations are met prior to settlement of the property. Your conveyancer will liaise with the real estate agent, broker, local authorities, and financial institutions to conduct the smooth transition of your property settlement.
The settlement process involves several steps, beginning with contract review, document preparation, co-ordinating with all parties within the contract, and final completion of transferring ownership.
Our settlement fees depend on the price of the property and circumstances associated with your contract. Additional fees and disbursement such as a mortgage registration, lease information enquiries, and/or strata titled properties may result in additional costs as the settlement progresses.
Your settlement date will be stated within your offer and acceptance contract. A typical settlement can take between 4-6 weeks. However, factors such as issues obtaining finance, unexpected delays, or matter complications may impact the time it takes to complete settlement.
No - your settlement agent will attend your settlement for you, either in-person or electronically via PEXA (Property Exchange of Australia).
That is up to you! You can inform our office if you would like to sign your documents in-person with your conveyancer, or we can send all documentation to you via email.
If the property you are purchasing is vacant, a Buyer may be able to take possession on the day of Settlement. However, if the Seller is occupying the property, then they are entitled to remain in occupation of the property until 12 noon the day after Settlement.
