Vendor FAQs

When should I call my Conveyancer?

Millard Conveyancing recommends making an appointment as soon as you’ve decided to sell your property. The sooner we can review the contract the sooner we can advise any amendments or special conditions you should consider. We can also help if you decide to sell without using a real estate agent – this often happens when a vendor already has a buyer in mind – and could be easier than you think.

I’ve called Millard Conveyancing, what happens next?

After you meet your friendly Millard Conveyancer, we’ll talk about your sale plans, then we take care of the hard work!

In summary… we’ll start by making sure that the contract, Form 1 statement and other accompanying documents are correct, obtain and check all relevant government searches. We’ll make sure that all special conditions are complied with on time and that the deposit has been paid to the Real Estate Agent.  We’ll prepare the paperwork including discharge of mortgage authorities (and we’ll liaise with your financier too to make sure the mortgages are discharged at settlement). We’ll check and arrange the execution of the  Memorandum of Transfer and liaise with your bank to ensure we meet the settlement date, advising all relevant parties (SA Water, local council etc) of the change in ownership and the best bit of all… quick access to your funds!
