Your Lender (known as a “Mortgagee”), such as a Bank or Credit Union.

What is vacant possession? 2018-03-21T16:44:48+00:00

At settlement the vendor must completely move out of the property he is selling together with all of his furniture, rubbish and stored goods.

A purchaser will usually conduct a final inspection of the property on the morning of settlement to ensure that the property will be left vacant by settlement time.

All goods and/or rubbish stored under the house, in the garage or in the roof, should be removed prior to settlement.

What is an “off the plan” purchase? 2018-03-21T16:44:07+00:00

A Contract for the purchase of a block of land in a larger parcel of land that is yet to be subdivided or an apartment in a building yet to be built or is in the course of construction.

The Contract is conditional upon registration of the plan of subdivision or strata plan.

It is very important you are able to identify the block of land or the apartment in the proposed plan to ensure you purchase the correct property.

“Off the Plan” transactions usually span a long period of time, from the date of exchange of the Contract to the date of settlement.

Who notifies the authorities that I have purchased a property? 2018-03-21T16:43:18+00:00

The Department of Lands requires us to provide information in order the local Council, water authority and the Valuer General are advised of the purchase. In addition, we also advise these organisations that you have purchased the property. We advise the strata manager if you have purchased a strata property.

Do I have to attend the settlement of my sale/purchase? 2018-03-21T16:42:44+00:00

What is a “Torrens” Title? 2018-03-21T16:41:57+00:00
The “Torrens Title” system is a system of registration of title, designed in the 1850s by Robert Richard Torrens for the South Australian land title registry.  The NSW Department of Lands has been using the “Torrens” system since 1863.

A single register is created for each land holding. All details and interests affecting the land such as easements and covenants are then recorded on the register.

Each property in NSW is given a unique computerised reference number – a Folio Identifier consisting of the lot number in either a Deposited Plan or Strata Plan.

Contrary to a popular belief a “strata title” is a Torrens Title.

Do you have Professional Indemnity Insurance? 2018-03-21T16:41:12+00:00

Yes.  Professional Indemnity Insurance is compulsory for all solicitors in NSW.
