Sale Preparation Checklist

  • Ensure the property is cleaned thoroughly
  • A few hundred dollars spent sprucing up the property will increase the saleability and more than likely increase the sale price.
  • Obtain a building and pest inspection report. This allows you to have necessary repair work done prior to sale. A 100% clear report can be used as a selling feature for buyers.
  • The Contract for Sale should be prepared by your solicitor or conveyancer with all the essential terms and conditions. The law requires that a contract be available for inspection prior to the property being offered for sale.
  • A certificate of compliance should be obtained from the Local Council if you have recently undertaken major building works.
  • If there is a current lease, check the expiry date and termination requirements and advise your solicitor.
  • Make a note of all the inclusions. That is, everything that will be included in the purchase price and remaining at the property after completion.Standard items include light fittings, floor coverings, curtains and blinds. These can also be excluded if you prefer but it should be noted in the contract for sale.
