We help you all the way to settlement

When buying a property the most often asked questions are "where do I start?" "what should I do now I have found a property?"

Once you have found your property and negotated a price the first thing you should do is obtain a copy of the contract and bring it to us to look over.

If everything is OK with the contract and you have done your pest and building inspections or strata inspection if strata and you have unconditional finance then you will be in a position to exchange.

Before exchange you must have completed all your negotiations and had any amendments noted on the contract as once you have exchanged contracts you are locked into a binding contract.

Once exchange has become binding we will do property enquiries and liase with the bank or financial institution and assist with the formalities of signing and returning mortgage documents.
Karen Lambert Conveyancing will then liaise with you all the way through to settlement.
