Pre-settlement property inspection

19 Mar 2019 | Simon Phillips

You are entitled to inspect the property at any reasonable time during the week before settlement. Contact the real estate agent to arrange this inspection.

Pre-settlement property inspection

The contract of sale requires the seller to hand over the property in the same condition as when it was sold. If, during the final pre-settlement inspection, you find that something is damaged or not working as it was on the day the property was sold, you can request a repair. Check all the items listed in the contract are there and in the right condition.
