There are a lot of ways that a contract can be varied, which is why we place so much importance on understanding your situation and financial goals so we assist with the most successful outcome for you.
The deposit – once a contract has been signed by the buyer and is legally binding, a deposit is usually paid and held in the trust account of the selling agent.
Settlement – this is the day money is exchanged and keys handed over and is scheduled in accordance with the contract, usually 6 weeks after contracts have been signed. Your conveyancer will act as liaison with your bank regarding the release of any mortgage held on the property.
Before settlement, the purchase price is adjusted to reflect the council rates, water rates and any other fees or adjustments based on the Contract for Sale.
