Our Services

Settlement Agents attend to the legal transfer of Title from the Seller to the Buyer as well as other property related transactions such as preparing new Titles for subdivided property and transferring property according to family court matters.

With over 16 years experience in the industry, Neo Settlements can assist you with the following:
 

  • Settlements – Residential, commercial and vacant land
  • Applications – Subdivisions, Survivorship, Change Of Name on the Title
  • Transfers – Pursuant to Family Court Orders (if divorcing or separating) or private agreements between related parties

 

Buying

Our aim is to make the settlement process as smooth and stress free as possible. We do this by carefully checking over your contract and ensuring all special conditions have been followed up - such as your termite & building reports. We also liaise closely with your broker and bank so that they have everything they need to be ready for settlement by the due date. We also confirm settlement with all the local government authorities on yor behalf.

Selling

When acting for the seller our main responsibility is to ensure your bank is ready with the discharge of the mortgage and that you you have completed your Verification of Identity as required by recent Landgate legislation. From our perspective the key to a successful sale settlement is to not only ensure we are ready to settle along with your bank, but also to ensure that the buyer's settlement agent has been contacted early on in the settlement process to ensure they and their bank are working to the same time frames.

Subdividing

Neo Settlements should be an important part of your subdivision development team alongside your surveyor and your bank. We can look after your subdivision whether you are selling off part of your family block, amalgamating blocks or developing land. Neo Settlements will organise your bank to make the Parent Title available at Landgate and liaise with your surveyor to ensure the Strata Plan or Deposited Plan is in Order for Dealing at Landgate. We will also ensure that any outstanding conditions of lodgement are met - including the lodgement of Notifications and Easements.

 

Separating or Divorcing

Neo Settlements can help with the stress you are already dealing with when separating or divorcing your partner. Whether you have gone through the Family Court system or not, we can help you transfer your property according to your wishes. Be mindful however, that without a Family Court Order the transfer between you and your ex-partner must be lodged at the Office of State Revenue for assessment (which takes approximately 4 weeks) and then you will be liable for stamp duty. A Transfer of Land prepared pursuant to a Family Court Order is exempt from stamp duty.We recommend that you speak to your solicitor regarding obtaining a Family Court Order in order to potentially save thousands of dollars in stamp duty as well as saving time.

 

Re-Financing

If you need to add or remove people from your Title as part of your bank requirements let Neo Settlements help you.  We will liaise with your bank to ensure this transfer is effected quickly and efficiently. In certain cases when adding a spouse to the Title you may be exempt from Stamp Duty and Neo Settlements can assist you with this.
