Things to do when selling
We cannot make arrangements to discontinue power, gas or telephone services to the property and you should therefore make your own arrangements in that regard. Please try and call these service providers approx one week prior to settlement to ensure that they have sufficient time to arrange final meter readings on the date you require them. We will notify the Local Council and the Water Corporation of the change of ownership and will arrange for the water meter to be read as close as possible to settlement date
The property continues to be at your risk, as far as insurance is concerned, until the date of settlement or the date of possession (i.e., the date on which the Buyer takes the keys and commences occupation of the property), whichever is the earlier date. We cannot make arrangements to transfer or cancel any insurance policies either on building or contents and you should contact your insurer to make necessary arrangements. If you pay a proportion of an insurance premium on a strata titled property which is not included in a regular strata levy contribution, could you please forward details of the insurance and the amount paid by you to us so that we may attend to any necessary adjustment of the premium between you and the Buyer.
Remember to notify anyone with whom you are in regular contact of your new address and contact details.
It is advisable to make arrangements with Australia Post for re-direction of your mail, if your address is changing after settlement.
You may wish to obtain quotes and book a removalist prior to the settlement date. Make sure that you are regularly in touch with us so that we can inform you if there is likely to be any delay in settlement.
Either you or the buyer may delay settlement for up to three business days after the due date, so, unfortunately, the contracted date is not assured.
If you have any queries or concerns in relation to any aspect of your transaction, please contact us without delay.
