How to take the hassle out of selling your home – and remove the stress of paperwork, documentation and legal details
- Do you know the names of all the documents that you have to include in a Contract for sale of land? (And where to find them?)
- Do you know what information you are legally required to disclose to prospective buyers?
- How about what items are usually included in a sale?
- How to make amendments to the Contract so that they are legally binding?
- What your responsibilities are at “exchange” and “settlement”?
- Without professional help, not many property owners are able to answer all these questions… Which means they may not be able to ensure that the legal requirements of preparing a Contract are satisfied.
- In fact, most property owners will need a solicitor or professional conveyancer to prepare a Contract for them.
