There is no doubt we work for the vendor, they have hired us to do a job for them, they are paying us to negotiate the best possible price and contract conditions for their property.
However, it is in our best interest to look after the purchaser too, to give them high quality service, because they are potentially vendors in the future and we want their business. We want the purchaser’s experience with us to be memorable, in a good way of course, so they think of us if or when they come to selling their asset.
Here are a few pointers we can give to purchasers:
Always ask for a copy of the Vendor’s Statement (Section 32). This will give you more in depth knowledge of the property you are looking to purchase.
Always have a Solicitor or Conveyancer look over the Vendor’s Statement to see if it’s correct. They may point out things that you’ve missed. Also get them to look over the Contract ofSale before you sign this legally binding document.
Undertake Due Diligence – such as physically measuring the property boundaries to check against the Vendor’s Statement.
Recommend you organise a Building and Pest Inspection.
To ask us to negotiate with the vendor anything you want to stay at the property (fixtures and fitting) and to detail these items in the Contact of Sale.
Recommend you conduct a Final Inspection (up to 7 days before Settlement) to check the property is delivered in the same condition it was in on the day of sale.
The good experience you have with us as a purchaser hopefully ensures you engage us when you are ready to sell your property in the future.
We pride ourselves on being communication specialists, service orientated and tough negotiators.
We look forward to the opportunity of dealing with you again on the vendor side of the negotiating table!
