Sargeants Dandenong & Casey
can help you with your conveyancing in purchasing.
Vacant land, new or established Residential Housing, Units or Flats,
'Off the Plan' properties,-
(Units, Townhouses or Houses) or Commercial Freehold Shops, Factories
We ensure your purchase transaction runs smoothly and with as little
stress as possible.
The first step in purchasing a property is signing
a Contract of Sale. We recommend that before you
sign the Contract, a copy including the Section 32 be forwarded
to us by you or your Estate Agent
for review. We do not charge a fee to review your Contract, and
it is in your best interests that the
Contract be reviewed before you sign any documents.
Once you have signed the Contract, the conveyancing process begins.
We will review the Contract and Section 32 Statement for you (if
not already perused prior to you signing) and will ensure our conveyancing
system has all relevant dates noted including dates of when special
conditions are due to be satisfied. This includes the date
that your finance is due to be approved (if applicable).
Buyers are sometimes mislead by lenders in believing that they have
been given formal approval for their loan application where in actual
fact they have only been given pre-approval. Lenders can change
their policies overnight and therefore being given pre-approval
does not necessarily mean you will automatically receive formal
approval. This is where your finance approval date is paramount.
We will liaise with you and your broker/banker to ensure this condition
is satisfied by the due date or endeavour to seek an extension on
the date for you. Should your contract be subject to any other conditions,
i.e building inspection or pest inspection etc, please advise our
office as soon as the conditions have been completed and/or satisfied.
When your contract becomes unconditional, we will obtain a search
of the Title including obtaining any necessary encumbrance certificates
in relation to your transaction.
Should you be obtaining finance to complete the transaction, we
will liaise with your financier to arrange the funding for the settlement
and provide all necessary paperwork and documentation to them as
In some cases, purchasers will be required to contribute some monies
(or all if it is a cash purchase) to the final settlement.
If this is the case in your transaction, we will advise you of the
cheque payee and amounts in due course. This will usually
take place approximately 2-5 days prior to settlement. Please
ensure you have this money available to you at this time as you
will be required to draw bank cheques for settlement. If you
are required to sell shares, close term deposits etc; please ensure
you allow yourself enough time to have the money cleared to complete
this transaction at settlement.
