Property sellers can engage our service either before or after appointing a selling agent.

Our service includes preparation of the Contract of Sale and Section 32 Vendors statement and, after the sale we take care of everything to ensure that settlement happens on time.

Did you know that as a seller, at best, you are not likely to receive the deposit for at least 28 days after signing the contract and at worst you may not receive the deposit until settlement?

We have a unique 7 step process that will give you the very best chance of receiving your deposit as quickly as possible so that you can reduce your loan balance and pay less interest.

Do you know what you are buying?

The contract will have a section title GOODS SOLD WITH THE LAND.

This is normally listed as "All fixed floor coverings, window furnishings and electric light fittings".

You should consider whether this covers everything that you think is being sold with the property and if not, have the agent add a list to the contract.

A couple of examples that might help are.....

If the property has a swimming pool you should ask if the pool cleaning equipment is included in the sale.


If there is a wall mounted television you need to ask if the television is included in the sale, if not, ask whether the wall brackets are being removed. If the wall brackets are being removed you should ask who is covering the cost of repairing and painting the wall.

MAKE SURE THAT THE CONTRACT CLEARLY LISTS ANY INCLUSIONS OR EXCLUSIONS not covered by 'all fixed floor coverings, window furnishings and electric light fittings"
