How can Essence Conveyancing help?

Essence Conveyancing is a service-focused Western Australian company with experience in all aspects of property settlement from residential to commercial, strata-titled to subdivisions, green titles to family transfers, buying, selling, or investing.

In short, we take care of everything to do with your settlement so you don’t need to worry about a thing.

I have a mortgage registered over my property. Can you liaise with my bank to have them ready for settlement?

Yes, we liaise with your bank leading up to settlement to make sure they are on track and they have received all documentation they need to prepare for settlement. However, we as settlement agents can’t fill out the discharge of mortgage forms that your bank require to action your request to release the mortgage. This needs to be signed by you.

When do I need to handover my keys at settlement?

If the property is your principle place of residence as a seller you don’t have to handover your keys until 12pm the day following settlement. If the property isn’t your principle place of residence you are required to handover your keys immediately following settlement.

Do I need to attend settlement?

No, you don’t need to attend settlement, we attend on your behalf. You can sit back and relax and we will notify you once it’s settled!

Do I need to notify the water corporation, council, gas and electricity companies of the change of ownership?

We will notify the Local Council, Water Corporation and if applicable the strata company of the change of ownership on your behalf as part of the settlement process. Gas, electricity, phone and internet accounts will need to be contacted direct by you, they won’t allow us to change details on your behalf.

Can I change the name of the purchaser now that my offer has been accepted?

Depending on what the change is in some cases this is possible without any stamp duty implications. In other cases double stamp duty could apply to any changes made. Contact us prior to undertaking any changes to the purchasing entity on your contract.
