Selling a Residential Property
For the average person, selling a residential property in Queensland can be a stressful and potentially complicated process.
But as a seller, you are not alone. With considerable experience in conveyancing, our lawyers can provide comprehensive guidance throughout the sale.
Based on your unique circumstances, we will make sure you are fully informed about your legal rights and obligations when selling your home privately, at auction. We’ll also make sure you understand your legal rights and responsibilities concerning home renovations and improvements prior to the sale, and the legal nuances associated with the sale contract and cooling off period. Finally, we’ll make sure you know what to expect on ‘settlement day.’
Here are some of the specific ways in which we help ensure the sale of your residential property goes smoothly.
- Prepare and review the sale contract before you sign it
- Assist with completion of the disclosure documents
- Address concerns associated with or stemming from inspections
- Acting as the liaison with the buyer and/or his or her lawyer
- Handling the financial transaction on settlement day
- Handling the transference of title
Whether you’re buying or selling residential property in Queensland, the financial stakes are massive. According to the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ), the annual median home price on the Gold Coast was $615,000 at the end of 2017. In contrast, the median home price on the Sunshine Coast price was $569,000 and in Noosa it was $650,000 by the end of 2017. Even though it only experienced “modest growth,” the median home price in Brisbane at the end of last year was $665,000.
With so much on the line, it is essential that you retain an experienced conveyancing lawyer to represent you throughout this process.
