How Do I Market and Sell My House (or unit, land, acreage…), then arrange contracts and legals, AND Not Pay Commission?
First, The Contracts and the Legal Stuff…
To be perfectly honest, this is one of the simplest parts of the sale process – by ensuring you seek and engage legal advice from the get go.
We do offer some general advice, however, we recommend the following…
Before you actually place your property ‘on the market’ we strongly advise that you seek the services of a reputable settlement agent, conveyancer or solicitor to assist in the preparation of a contract and any legal documents (e.g. Title searches, Disclosures, Statement of Information…depending on the State your property is in), so you are ready to go when you come to an agreement with your buyer.
Once you have secured a deal with your buyer, forward all the details to your legal practitioner so they can create and execute a contract of sale, and help you see the sale through to completion (settlement).
It is possible to do your own conveyancing, but it not without risk (see DIY Conveyancing: What can go wrong?)
You can visit our State Resources page which is a guide to property legislation in each State and Territory.
Remember, you are fully within your legal rights to sell your own home and a reputable legal practitioner will guide you through all the legal steps when you accept an offer from a buyer .
