Selling

When selling your property, give yourself the best chance in the market

Many people sell and buy at the same time so coordinating a sale and purchase involves knitting the two transactions together so they complete on the same date. This creates a transaction chain. Flexibility, a considerate attitude and great negotiating skills are what you need to deal with being part of a chain.

At Moonee Valley Conveyancing we are positive that you will be delighted with how we project manage your real estate sale.

The Sale of Land Act requires a vendor of real estate to provide specific information about the property being sold to a prospective purchaser.  This is known as a Section 32 Statement.  Moonee Valley Conveyancing will compile a Section 32 Statement as well as any other documentation that is required for the sale of your property.

We will check and prepare all financial adjustments, attend settlement on your behalf and liaise with all the relevant parties to ensure the transaction runs smoothly.  All we require from you is for you to return a simple Section 32 Questionnaire that we send to you.  Any information that you provide will assist us in getting the job done quickly and efficiently.  We will take care of the following processes for you:

  • Discuss and prepare the section 32 and contract of sale
  • Once sold we contact your bank to arrange discharge of your mortgage
  • Where possible we forward section 27 statement to purchaser’s representative to secure early release of the deposit for you
  • Receive and check transfer of land documentation
  • Ensure all adjustments for rates and charges have been calculated correctly
  • Arrange settlement
  • Attend settlement on your behalf, and arrange for payment of the proceeds of sale in accordance with your directions
  • Preparation of notice of disposition and forward to council and appropriate authorities to advise of change of ownership
  • Provide you with statement of settlement figures for your records

We can take care of all the paperwork and communications associated with refinancing.  This includes liaising with you and your lender, organising documents, helping you meet any requirements set by the lender, lodging forms, and ensuring all is in place for a smooth and successful settlement.
