What are 3 tips to help me in the real estate settlement process?

3 great tips to help you navigate through the home settlement process

1. During the settlement period, purchasers are entitled to ask for accompanied access to the property for “reasonable” purposes. Remember though, the property still belongs to the owner and they are not obliged to grant access.

2. Stay in close contact with your legal representative when planning removal van booking times. It’s crucial that your belongings will be delivered to your new home at a time that fits tightly with the legal process.

3. Your agent cannot hand over the keys to your new home until instructed in writing to do so by the vendor’s solicitor (in writing). You must be prepared for possible legal or banking delays when moving out of your current residence.
