SELLING REAL ESTATE IN NEW SOUTH WALES
Before you commence to market your residential property in New South Wales, it is compulsory under the current legislation to have a complete contract for sale and prescribed documents available with the selling Agent. Whilst this is not the case for commercial property we recommend that the same approach be taken, as a complete contract will aide the better marketing of your property.
At The Norton Law Group we will ensure that your contact complies with the stringent requirements of the law. We will guide you through the various “optional” attachments to a contract which may be of assistance in better marketing your property. Finally we do not just use standard forms of contract but adapt and vary the “standard form of contract” so as to be specific to your property and your circumstances.
Once an exchange of contracts has taken place we will take your sale to completion, including dealing with any requisitions the purchasers may make in relation to the title of the property, and liaising with your discharging financial institution (if any).
On the day of settlement we would attend on your behalf, ensuring that all relevant documentation is handed to the purchaser and bank cheques are received on your behalf as per your instructions.
If the contract calls for vacant possession you must vacate the property on or before settlement (unless other arrangements have been negotiated with the purchaser). Vacant possession includes leaving no rubbish and belonging in or about the property.
Following settlement of your sale we recommend you review and update your will to ensure it meets with your current circumstances. Wills, Powers of Attorney & Deceased Estates
