So it is time to buy your first or next piece of real estate…

You have found your ideal home or investment property and your real estate agent is engaged. What next? Do you need to use the Settlement Agent that they recommend or is it better to engage your own?

Do your due diligence by researching settlement agents and ensure you engage a conveyancer who has your best interests at heart, is up-front about fees (which is another rule in play) and cares about your individual situation and not just.

At Supreme Settlements, we assign you your Settlement Agent, who works with you directly, therefore they get to know your personal circumstances, so you are never treated like a number. We act for one party in the transaction, to help them navigate the sales process, decode the jargon and manage any risks.

What is the role of a Settlement Agent?

Conveyancing is the process of transferring ownership of a legal title of land (property) from one person or entity to another.

A conveyancer is a licensed, qualified professional who provides information about the sale of a property, prepares the documentation and conducts the settlement process.

We are commonly engaged when you are;

  1. Buying a property
  2. Selling a property
  3. Subdividing land
  4. Updating a title (i.e. registering a death, or name change)

Who does a Settlement Agent represent?

We work with the buyer or seller, but never both.

For the buyer – a Conveyancer will:

  • Prepare, clarify and lodge legal documents – e.g. contract of sale or transfer of land
  • Research the property and its certificate of title
  • Put the deposit money in a trust account
  • Calculate the adjustment of rates and taxes
  • Settle the property – including communication between all parties such as real estate agents, seller’s settlement agent, banks or financial institutions

For the seller – a Conveyancer will:

  • Complete the legal documents
  • Represent you and communication with all parties

What to look for in a Conveyancer?

Do your homework whether you are engaging us or comparing other settlements agents.
Here are some things to look for;

  1. Are they a member of the Australian Institute of Conveyancers?
  2. Do they offer one contact person for the transaction?
  3. How much experience does the agent have? (Check their website, bio and LinkedIn profile)
  4. Do they have recommendations and testimonials?
  5. Do they have a good reputation (Google them)?
  6. Do they specialise in particular types of properties?
  7. What are your fees and charges?
  8. Are there any hidden costs?
  9. How will they communicate with you and how often?
  10. What are the time frames for your settlement?
  11. How do they make you feel?
  12. Do your homework, but most importantly, trust your instincts.

Supreme Settlements aim to make the property transaction process as stress-free and straightforward as possible, through open communication, personalised services and truly caring about our clients. Our role is more than making sure the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed.

Do you enjoy deciphering the fine print on legal documents, or would you rather be doing other things? We take care of the details to give our clients more time and energy, and less stress.
