Get your pen and paper ready because here’s the next lot.

TIP 6: FINE TUNE WORDING
Ensure the wording of Special Conditions are correct. The addition or exclusion of words can mean the difference of a contract proceeding or coming to an end.

TIP 7: INSPECTIONS
Make sure you complete a final inspection in the week leading up to settlement.

TIP 8: EASEMENTS?
Check to see if there are any easements on your land. This could affect your plans for building, developing or landscaping.

TIP 9: KNOW YOUR COSTS
There’s more to selling your home than just agent fees. Find out what typical costs are involved. Ensure you have thought about how much money you will need to sell your property to ensure that you have budgeted accordingly. You don’t want to be left with any hidden shortfall at settlement, including breakout fees, from early payout of mortgages.

TIP 10: PAY UP AND ON TIME
Ensure you pay your deposit on time to avoid any penalty interest.
