If you’re buying or selling a property, you want the transaction to go smoothly. In an ideal setting, all parties cooperate so issues are sorted quickly and settlement is reached without drama. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Difficult settlements do happen and they can become a larger problem without the help of a trusted conveyancer. If you want to spare yourself the headache of a complicated settlement, avoid these mistakes:
Not picking the right Conveyancer.
A Conveyancer will ensure that your sale or purchase goes exactly as planned. Hiring a good Conveyancer working in a reputable law firm is a worthy investment that pays off later. They will take care of all the paperwork and stress of dealing with complicated legal matters, saving you time and effort. Before picking a Conveyancer, make sure to do your research or ask people for recommendations.
Signing a contract without the guidance of a Conveyancer.
Contracts are legally binding so don’t sign anything until you’ve consulted a Conveyancer. A Conveyancer can review a contract and explain its ins and outs for you. The earlier you hire a Conveyancer, the more likely you are to avoid pitfalls.
Not knowing if you need a longer settlement period.
While a 30-day settlement is the standard, it may not be enough time for you. It is important to determine if you will need a longer contract if the situation calls for it. Talk to a Conveyancer to discuss the appropriate settlement period for you.
Overlooking something could be the difference between an easy settlement and a difficult one. Make sure to prepare all the necessary documents and paperwork and to communicate openly with your conveyancer. That said, plan ahead of time to ensure a hassle-free settlement.
