Things to Consider Before Making An Offer
House hunting can seem both daunting and exciting at the same time. However, it's important to keep in mind your specific requirements for the property. Some of these considerations may include:
- Your lifestyle
- Functionality of the property
- Style & design of the property
- Property age
- Potential structural problems
- Plumbing & electrical fittings
Exchanging Contracts & Deposits
Once you have found your desired property, we will examine and review the contract of sale for you.
GK Mobile Conveyancing will work quickly to make sure you don't miss the opportunity to purchase the property.
If you wish to make any changes to the contract, our team will liaise with the vendors representative to ensure the contracts provisions fully set out the correct agreement between the parties.
After making enquires and meeting your financial arrangements, contracts can be signed and exchanged between you and the vendor.
We will travel to you in the Newcastle, Hunter Valley, Lake Macquarie and Port Stephens regions to oversee the exchange of contracts.
During this process, you will also be required to pay a deposit. The vendor usually requests a deposit of 10%. However, a different amount can be discussed and recorded on the contract.
There are a number of other costs to take into consideration when purchasing a property, such as:
- Stamp duty
- Inspection reports
- Title fees
- Loan fees
Your financial interests remain at the forefront during our management of your property transaction. That's why we offer our conveyancing work for a flat fee.
As a purchaser, you are given statutory rights in relation to a cooling-off period. We will fully explain these provisions to you, together with details of the advantages and disadvantages of waiving same.
Congratulations! You are now the legal owner of your new property. Approximately 5-6 weeks after the contract exchange, GK Mobile Conveyancing will meet with the vendor's solicitor or conveyancer, their bank representative and your bank representative on settlement day.
The rest of the sale price is then paid, with the necessary cheques and title documents exchanged. Our Maitland, New South Wales conveyancing team will do everything to assist in making this a smooth transition to suit your arrangements and needs.
Off The Plan
There are some properties that are advertised for sale before they have been built. This is known as 'buying off the plan'. On your behalf, GK Mobile Conveyancing will review the contract to fully understand liabilities, make enquiries and arrange an expression of interest.
At GK Mobile Conveyancing, we will cut out the complexities when explaining the process of buying an apartment or unit in a strata scheme.
GK Mobile Conveayncing will determine exactly what is being sold to you in your rural property transaction. We will check if a 'clearing sale' has being organised by the owner during the selling of their property. Any outstanding expenses relating to the property will also be identified before the date of settlement.
Entering into a retail or commercial lease is a huge commitment. Leasing contract between a landlord and a tenant can often span between 5 to 25 years.
We will help you identify extra costs listed in the contract, as well as negotiating carefully, ensuring all parties involved are looked after.
No matter whether you are the retail or commercial tenant, or the landlord, our conveyancingexperts will assist you in understanding all guidelines and rules before signing.
