- I will consult with your chosen agent as to the best details to include in your contract to help with the marketing process.
- Your contract will be prepared, and attachments requested, as close to your first marketing date as possible to ensure the contract is ‘fresh’ to prospective purchasers, thus further increasing your sale prospects.
- Upon preparation of your contract and submission to your agent, you will receive written advice of all procedures that will ensue from that time.
- I will contact you to discuss all enquiries from potential purchasers.
- I prepare and send you discharge documentation for your existing mortgagee when preparing your contract to avoid any procedural delays at the time of locating a purchaser.

- You are always welcome to contact me.
- I will always act in your best interest.
Please advise the following points when instructing me to prepare your contract:-
- Do you have any documents relating to the property you may have obtained when purchasing the
property. If you purchased through Concept Conveyancing you would have been given a Sale
Contract Documents package clearly labelled with the address of your property, containing all
relevant documents for sale of your property.
- Renovations to the property within the past 10 years. If so, do you have the local council approval?
Occupation Certificate? And, Home Owner’s Warranty insurance certificate? If you renovated your
property within the past seven years, to a value exceeding $12,000 (now increased to $20,000), a
certificate for Home Owner’s Insurance is a legislative requirement to provide in your contract.
- Do you have a swimming pool and does it comply with the Swimming Pools Act. Basic items of
compliance are:- whether the fence is of required height and unclimbable, whether there is garden
furniture which would enable a child to climb the fence, does the gate close automatically, does the
property have other access to the pool, i.e. direct house access, and is there a resuscitation poster
erected within the pool enclosure.
- Does the property have smoke alarms installed?
- Strata Manager contact details (Strata title only).
- Letting agent (tenant occupied only). Copy of Residential Tenancy Agreement if the property is to
be sold with the tenant in occupation.
- Current mortgagee. Discharge documentation to initiate the discharge process will be provided
to you upon preparation of your contract and submission to your agent. When you return this
document completed and signed in the envelope provided to you, I will hold it on file until you
exchange with a buyer. It will then be submitted to your mortgagee requesting their cooperation for
- If you don’t have a mortgage, I will ask you for the location of the Certificate of Title. It is a good
idea to locate the Certificate of Title well before settlement to ensure it is handy when it is required.
- Inclusions to be left with the property after sale?
- Exclusions to be taken with you which could be misconstrued as fixtures?
- Is it an Investment property? Consider which financial year you would like the proceeds to be
recorded in. In this case, you should consider Land Tax, GST and Capital Gains considerations. It
is advisable that you seek advice from your Accountant in this case.
