  • DUE DILIGENCE AND COOLING-OFF PERIOD

    It is important to complete your due diligence regarding the property well in time. This includes property inspections, contract review, amendments to be made in the said contract, and approval of finance. We can help you get the required finance if you do not have a mortgage broker. The due diligence needs to be completed well before the cooling off period ends. Cooling off period refers to the time between the exchanges of the contracts. Some buyers prefer to complete the due diligence and negotiation of the contract prior to signing it, especially if there is no cooling off period.

    We advise our clients to be prepared in advance for this phase so that all parties involved are done with due diligence within the mandated cooling off period and are ready to sign the contract. This becomes even more important if there is no cooling off period, like in the case of properties that have been auctioned. In this case, you will have to be ready on a short notice and keep yourself available for completing paperwork related to mortgage, property, building, pest, and strata inspections.

  • FINALISING AND SIGNING THE CONTRACT
    lastly, we will go through the contract and after your approval of the potential changes; we will liaise with the vendor’s conveyancer/ solicitor and deal with their queries promptly. Once all the parties have arrived at a consensus on the contract, sign it and complete the remaining formalities before taking possession of the property.

Complete Guide for First Home Buyer in Sydney

Buying a house in Sydney can be an expensive affair. But there are many who purchase their first property by carefully planning out their finances and research. With SD Conveyancing, you too can make that happen. All you need to do is to keep a few points in mind:

  • SET THE BUDGET
    Before you set out to check houses, you need to have a fair understanding of the amount of money you can deposit and how much you can borrow. The best way is to approach a lending institution like a mortgage company or a bank to know the interest rates for the money you will borrow. Having a substantial amount of money to pay as your deposit will help keep your interest payments low.
  • GRANTS AND INCENTIVES
    There are many incentives available for a first-time home buyer to help make it easier to buy their first home.
    Certain requirements need to be fulfilled to receive these grants, like the buyer will have to live in the property for at least 12 months and the maximum price threshold set. The features of these schemes can change from time to time, but they still favour the buyer in many ways. For example, in Sydney and across NSW, the buyer is not required to pay any stamp duty. They can also be eligible for a discounted stamp duty on certain properties.
  • SECURING A HOME LOAN
    This could be a tricky situation for a first-time home buyer as there are many variables attached to securing a loan. You can get a loan from a mortgage broker or bank. A bank will offer you stability and a wide range of service, but a mortgage broker will be more personal in their dealings. Then, you will have to choose the type of loan that you need and be aware of the kind of rates that you will be charged for repayment.
  • FIND THE RIGHT PROPERTY
    Think carefully before zeroing in on the place you choose as your home. First-time home buyers usually do not have a lot of money with them and prefer to buy a small space with a plan to upgrade later. Many choose an apartment for this purpose. Apartments have a lot of benefits but buying a house has greater benefits in the form of independence and privacy. Another major factor that needs to be considered is the suburb that you choose. A suburb closer to the Sydney CBD will offer properties at higher rates.

Buying Property Through Real Estate Agent

As per the laws that govern the sale and purchase of property in NSW, it is mandatory for a contract of sale to be ready and be provided to potential purchasers.

So, whenever you plan to purchase a property, ask the Real Estate Agent for a copy of the Contract of Sale. When you get it, forward to us for review and feedback. We will advise you while negotiating the terms and conditions of the contract according to your wishes.

When the review is in process, you will have to organise the final loan approval. The finances must be ready as you will have to pay 0.25% of the property rate as a non-refundable deposit at the time of signing the contract. There is a 5-day cooling off period after which a 10% deposit must be paid, unless negotiated otherwise. This cooling off period can be extended or even waived off.

You will also have to complete your due diligence, which includes property inspections, finance approval, and contract review and amendments before the cooling off period ends. We suggest that you be prepared in advance so that you can keep yourself available for property inspection and other associated modalities.

Meanwhile, we will liaise with the vendor’s conveyancer/solicitor, or Real Estate Agent to get the contract ready for the final signature.

Buying Property Without Estate Agent

At SD Conveyancing, we assist our clients in buying property without involving an Estate Agent. Since the purchase is being done directly from the vendor, you need to inform us about the details regarding the property at the earliest. This is required as some responsibilities involved will become yours, ours, and the vendor’s.

When you have decided to purchase a property, ensure you get a contract of sale from the vendor or their conveyancer/solicitor. We will work with you to get the contract reviewed at the earliest so that you have an idea about your responsibilities that would otherwise be that of the Real Estate Agent.

Once you are clear about your role, you should complete your due diligence checks, like property inspections and unconditional finance approval, before the cooling off period expires and, if possible, before signing the contract. Some purchasers prefer to complete property inspections prior to signing the contract. You will need to spend a lot of time overseeing these inspections as there will be no Real Estate Agent to look after them.

After the required is done, we liaise with the vendor’s conveyancer/solicitor. Once the enquires and details are ironed out, you can sign the contract to be in possession of the property.

When you are working with SD Conveyancing, purchasing a property becomes easy. Here are a few points that will help make the whole process simpler:
