What is a settlement?  Simply put, it is the process of transferring a property from one person to another.  Although this may sound simple, the process can be quite involved. Settlement is the important final stage in the sale of a property and mistakes can be costly, time-consuming and stressful.  

As your settlement agent, some of our tasks include:-
  • Searching land titles and checking any restrictions on the use or transfer of the property identified on the title,
  • arranging, where required, for any restrictions on the title to be removed,
  • enquiring with local councils and with government departments about rates, taxes and water consumption to determine details of outstanding amounts, sewer connection and outstanding orders or requisitions,
  • notifying the relevant authorities about the change of ownership,
  • preparing settlement statements, legal documents and forms,
  • following up on performance of conditions on contract of sale,
  • lodgment of contracts and payment of stamp duty with the Office of State Revenue,
  • obtaining payment from clients for all fees, government fees and duty payable,
  • attending settlement to exchange documents and monies to facilitate the legal transfer of property,
  • notifying the relevant authorities when settlement occurs
  • searching Landgate's register to ensure transfer is correctly shown.
