Document preparation

The Section 32 statement and contract of sale for your property are prepared and reviewed. A caveat can also be lodged (if required).

Our aim is to prepare the section 32 statement as quickly as possible. While timing is important, getting all the details right is more crucial for all parties involved.

Our practice is to prepare the contract of sale at the same time as the section 32 statement. In this way we provide the agent with all of the documents that are necessary to create a legally binding agreement.

Release of deposit

A purchaser will usually pay a 10 per cent deposit at the time the contract is signed. The deposit is usually held by the real estate agent or solicitor until settlement. This deposit can be released prior to settlement but the purchaser is entitled to have full details of any amounts owed in relation to the property.

These details include the amount secured by the mortgage, when the mortgage must be repaid, amount required to discharge the mortgage and interest payable. This will form what is known as a section 27 statement.

If there is no mortgage over the property the vendor is entitled to release the deposit 28 days after the date of contract. Your settlement status can now be tracked through the PEXA SettleMe app until settlement day.

Final inspection

The purchaser is entitled to conduct a final inspection of the property in the week before settlement and the agent will arrange this. The purpose of the inspection is to establish that the property is in the same condition it was on the day of sale.

The vendor is obliged to pay the rates on the property until settlement and the purchaser thereafter. Rates are adjusted by deducting the outstanding rates from the money paid to the vendor at settlement.

A cheque is then forwarded to the rating authority for any amount owing and rates are therefore paid until the end of the rating year.

Settlement and handover

Settlement takes place where the title to the property is held. As most homeowners have a mortgage, their titles are held by their banks. Our office appoints a settlement agent to attend the settlement.

At settlement the purchaser’s representative hands over the money due to the vendor and in exchange the vendor’s representative hands over the relevant documents to enable the purchaser to become registered as the owner of the property.

Keys are then collected by the purchaser from the agent after settlement. The agent should only hand over keys upon written authorisation from our office.

Answers to your questions on buying

What are the costs associated with selling a property?

The costs of selling a property typically include real estate commission and marketing fees, usually varying from 1 per cent to 3 per cent of the total sale price. Other costs involve fees regarding discharge of mortgage and general conveyancing fees.

What is the usual deposit on a property?

Typically, the deposit is 10 per cent of the total sale price though this number can vary.

When should I contact a conveyancer when I'm selling?

We recommend contacting a conveyancer as soon as you decide to sell your property. Getting expert legal guidance from the very beginning ensures the whole conveyancing process runs smoothly. Selling property is one of the biggest assets you will transact in a lifetime Getting something wrong during the process can be very costly.

What is the cost of online conveyancing?

The cost of online conveyancing can vary due to the complex nature of a property transaction. We will advise you at the start if the conveyancing services you require will extend beyond the fixed-fee service.

What's the difference between a solicitor and a conveyancer?

The major differences between a solicitor and conveyancer in Victoria are their qualifications and what they can provide in terms of service.

Solicitors are required to complete a Bachelor of Laws degree followed by a one-year Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice. Conveyancers are only required to complete an advanced diploma of conveyancing and 12 months of work experience.

Conveyancers may charge less than lawyers for their services but they are not qualified to give you legal advice for your property transaction.

If your property transaction does end up in litigation before court, a conveyancer will not be able to assist you. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to represent and assist you the whole way, because they have the right qualifications and training.
