Organise your finances

Ensure you have pre-approval in place with your preferred lender. A 10% deposit is normally required or in some instances a Deposit Bond may be utilised to secure your property.


Find your property, make an offer

It is recommended building and pest inspections are undertaken prior to signing a Contract for Sale. If going to auction, these would need to be done prior to the auction day.


Exchange of Contracts

Cornerstone Conveyancing Services will help you with the review and negotiation of all elements of the Contract prior to exchange. The deposit is immediately payable, prior to exchange of Contracts.  Cooling off periods may apply in certain situations.


Property Settlement

Usually around 6 weeks after exchange of Contracts, completion will take place and you will be the registered proprietor.
