Selling a House in Darwin


Jarrett Lawrie Conveyancing

If you have decided to sell your home, either because you are moving to a new area or a different property, Jarrett Lawrie Conveyancing can help you with the process. You may have already spoken with a real estate agent about listing your property on the market. In Australia real estate sales involves a few complicated steps that are best finalised with the assistance of a professional who understands the intricacies of the law.

Our conveyancers can sit down with you to discuss the specifics of the property you are trying to sell to determine how far you are in the process. For instance, some of our clients are only thinking about putting their property up for sale and want to understand the conveyancing process, while others have already found a buyer.

Selling Houses in Australia

When you do reach the stage where you have a buyer for your home, the conveyancing process will begin. In Australia the process involves a few different stages. While there is no legal requirement for you to hire a conveyancer, we believe it's in your best interests to have our representatives guide you through the stages of the process.

Our conveyancers will fill out forms or look over paperwork at your request, we also liaise with other professionals, conduct inspections and take your place at the final settlement. Our services are the safest and most comfortable way to sell your property.
Step 1: The Contract
Contract — Selling a House in Parap, NT
The first stage of the conveyancing process involves agreeing to a contract with the other party. Our conveyancers can put together a contract for you to sell your home and we can also look over a contract provided by the buyer. If we feel any terms do not represent your best interests we will advise you about making amendments.

The Contract for Sale of Land must be agreed on by both parties before we can proceed to the next stage. Once you do agree to the terms there will be a five-working-day cooling off period where both parties have a chance to reassess the circumstances. Before the agreement the buyer may request certain inspections and reports for your home. These are routine inspections that should be of any concern but our conveyancers are happy to liaise with the other party’s representatives so we are informed about how the process is coming along.
Step 2: Deposit and Exchange

When the final agreement is reached the buyer will put down a deposit on the property and you will exchange identical signed copies of the contract for the land sale. Now you are in the cooling off period which lasts five working days. It is possible for the buyer to change their mind in this period but not the seller.
Step 3: Settlement

The final stage of selling your home is the settlement. This is the meeting where the final paperwork is exchanged, along with checks for the full amount of money the buyer is paying to buy your property. We can represent you at the settlement. When all the steps are complete, we inform you of the successful conclusion and hand over the cheque.
