It’s important to prepare detailed and thorough Contracts Of Sale and Vendor Statements for Real Estate Agents to confidently promote properties and for Purchasers to make informed buying decisions.

When acting for Vendors we compile details on properties offered to market so potential Purchasers can be fully informed and Real Estate Agents can promote properties with confidence.

A contract can take up to 10 working days to be produced due to the required Certificates; or sooner if a rush fee is paid. So if you know when you’d like to put your property on the market, it’s wise to allow for this stage to be completed.

The files we prepare to sell properties typically include a Contract of Sale, Auction and Contract Conditions and a Vendor Statement that consists of the necessary Certificates required by Section 32 of the 1962 Sale Of Land Act.

Typically we provide Real Estate Agents with a PDF of the Contract and Vendor’s Statement to distribute to potential purchasers and have signed by all parties when a property is sold. This provides Real Estate Agents with the optimum tools to inform potential buyers about properties from a legal perspective so they can promote features and benefits to achieve the best sale price possible.

When a property has been sold we liaise with the Purchaser, Real Estate Agent and Financial Institution to confirm financial adjustments and prepare documentation for Settlement to ensure a smooth Title exchange. After Settlements we notify the required bodies of the change of ownership to stop expenses being incurred beyond the settlement date.


We help clients buy properties with confidence by walking them through the buying process by providing advice and avoiding potential problems. Clients benefit from our experience and quickly become repeat clients as they build property portfolios.

Between the day a contract is signed and settlement date, many things can happen that may put the intention to own a property at risk. When acting for Purchasers we take great care to review the Vendor’s Statement considering the Title, Plans and other Certificates and arrange documentation for settlement while accounting for financial adjustments.

We liaise with Financial Institutions and Real Estate Agents to ensure properties are transferred correctly and smoothly. Post settlement we notify all utilities and bodies of the change of ownership so Purchasers can enjoy their property with confidence.
