Moving house can be stressful! And when you consider the average Australian moves 11 times in their life, it's worth a little time and effort to plan it properly and make the move as pain-free as possible.
Start planning six weeks from the big day if possible
If you're using finance to purchase your new home, act swiftly and get organised early, then you can relax until settlement - sometimes delays occur which can be frustrating for you!
Organise building insurance straight away regardless of whether the current owner has the property insured. You will need proof of this insurance for your finance paperwork to be approved.
If you would like to change details on your Contract of Sale (for example to arrange an earlier settlement) you must now liaise your Solicitor, who will in turn liaise with Vendor's Solicitor. We are unable to make any alterations to the Contract of Sale once it has been signed, any changes must be make by your Legal Representatives.
You have the opportunity to perform a final inspection on your new property in the week before settlement. Please contact us in order to make this appointment. It's important to note that by giving us as much notice as possible, you will ensure your inspection can be at a time that suits you best.
On settlement day, we'll need written confirmation (faxed) from the Vendor's Solicitor that the property has settled before we can actually hand you the keys (so it's not a good idea to book your moving truck for 12.15pm if your settlement is scheduled for 12pm. Delays sometimes occur which again can be frustrating and stressful for you!)
