Before Unconditional Exchange.

During this stage we will:

  • Review and advise on the Contract for Sale
  • Liaise with the Conveyancer/Solicitor appointed by the Vendor (the Seller) and negotiate any changes to the Contract
  • Organise any requested inspections on the property
  • Communicate with your lender to ensure that your loan is approved

Unconditional Exchange to Settlement.

During this stage we will:

  • Confirm with you that exchange has occurred and let you know the expected settlement date as well as any stamp duty requirements
  • Carry out other property inquiries and due diligence checks relevant to your purchase
  • Continue to liaise with your lender about organising your finance for the expected settlement date
  • Prepare the required documents for settlement and book in a settlement time that suits you with the Vendor’s Conveyancer and your finance lender
  • Prepare and confirm settlement figures with you
  • Attend settlement

After Settlement.

During this stage we will:

  • Confirm with you that settlement has taken place and that you may collect the keys
