For many of us the most expensive asset we have is our house. Whether buying or selling it can be daunting to be faced with a complex set of steps that will impact on your future happiness and financial well being. It is reassuring to have a trusted advisor to guide you through the process.

We can advise on the wording of terms in the agreement before you sign to ensure that you have the best possible chance of getting an agreement that meets your requirements.

We can explain the rules that apply to the various methods of buying and selling a property and when the contract will be fully binding on both the buyer and the seller and what you need to know before you sign a contract for:

• Sale or purchase by auction

• Negotiated sales and purchase agreements involving a real estate agent

• Tenders

• Private sales when the owner of the property handles the sale process themselves without a real estate agent being involved

• Mortgagee sales.

Our firm has an experienced conveyancing team who can help you through each step in the sale and purchase process.
