When buying and selling property anywhere within Western Australia, it is crucial to ensure all legal aspects of your sale or purchase are responsibly managed. It is your legal right to nominate an independent Settlement agent of your own choosing, one you feel you can trust with your property Transfers and one who will help you to move forward as efficiently as possible.
Here at Synergy Settlements we feel it is important to point out the significant potential for conflicts of interest to arise should your Real Estate Agent and Settlement agent have a financial or business affiliation. Of course the better Real Estate agents would generally recommend an independent Conveyancer based purely on expertise, efficiency and reliability.
Legally you may complete the requisite Settlement procedures yourself, but we should make you aware there are potential pitfalls in completing this complex process yourself, in addition to the time involved, penalties for non-performance & non-compliance etc. It's also a help if you have access to relevant industry resources, Govt databases & Govt agencies + the possession of a thorough knowledge of all aspects involved in the Conveyancing process.
