Legal advice

Advice on real estate contracts

If you are buying or selling real estate, we will assist you to complete your contract by preparing the required conveyancing documents, attending to all necessary searches, adjusting rates and taxes, ensuring that the transfer of land is properly registered at Landgate and dealing with the sale proceeds in accordance with your instructions.

There’s no cooling off period for real estate contracts in Western Australia. Once the contract is signed by both parties it’s usually legally binding.

Difficulties are more likely to arise where parties attempt to amend the standard form contract by adding special conditions. In these circumstances, particularly where the conditions relate to the sale of another property or contemplate a building inspection as a condition of sale it is wise to obtain legal advice before you sign.

It’s better to be safe than sorry. If you need advice, arrange a consultation with one of our property lawyers.

Default notices and enforcement action

Most settlements proceed smoothly. But if there’s a problem it’s good to know that your settlement lawyers have the resources to advise you of your rights and tackle the difficulty on the spot. Flat Rate Settlements with Birman & Ride is a one-stop shop if you need to take legal action to enforce your rights.
