PROPERTY Settlement DOCUMENTS
Below is a list of documents settlement agents need to proceed with successful property settlement in Perth Western Australia. If your travel to get official witnessing of documents is difficult and or expensive, then getting your proof of identity (POI) and offer and acceptance signed and witnessed AT THE SAME time would halve your hassles and travel costs. Depending on whether the property is a going concern or not will depend on what documents are need. See our public disclosure statement (PDS).
AVOID DEATH OF A THOUSAND (PAPER) CUTS
Rather than discovering what conveyancing documents you need one at a time, it's good advice to ask your property settlement agent what are all of the documents required and what is the process of buying or selling property in Perth WA?
- Offer and acceptance contract. Signed by both buyer and seller.
- Sellers proof of identity (POI)
- GST and Withholding tax forms
If the property being sold is strata titled you'll also need these forms:
- Buying and Selling a Strata Titled Lot - Form 29.
- Disclosure Statement - Form 28.
- Strata Plan. Your property management / strata management company might provide this form for free. If not you can search, pay (the cheaper option) from Landgate.wa.gov.au
- Property title deed. If you lost your title deed, you can get a "duplicate title" deed from the Landgate office in Midland or the Landgate office, 200 St Georges Terrace, Perth CBD. Landgate want proof of identity when applying for a "duplicate title deed" but Landgate won't accept your PoID document but instead refer you to the $169 proof of identity service at Australia Post. If the property is owned buy a trust, proof of identity is required for EACH trustee.
