Let us make the experience stress-free for you.

Buying or selling a property is an exciting time, yet it can also be a stressful experience.

We guide you through each step of the process, and provide certainty regarding fees.

If you are buying, we:

  • prepare all documents and ensure compliance with contract terms and time limits
  • check the title and plan for easements, encumbrances and caveats, and conduct necessary searches
  • ensure there are no outstanding charges and levies
  • advise you on transfer duty payable and explain any concessions available to you
  • liaise with your financier to ensure its requirements are satisfied
  • attend to settlement on your behalf
  • ensure the property is transferred into your name and relevant authorities are notified

If you are selling, we:

  • prepare all documents and ensure compliance with contract terms and time limits
  • ensure the buyer complies with the terms of the contract
  • check all documents you are required to sign are in order
  • ensure charges and levies you have paid in advance are adjusted in your favour
  • keep you fully informed throughout the process
  • liaise with you and your bank to arrange for the discharge of any mortgage
  • attend to settlement on your behalf
