Residential Property Settlements

Buying or selling houses, units, or flats, among other residential properties, is a common—but complex—settlement transaction. There are many variables to consider and tasks to complete to ensure the transfer of ownership is legally valid, which is made more complex by the fact that no two properties are exactly the same.

With a proven track record as Perth’s oldest (and most trusted) conveyancing agency, our settlement agents provide a seamless experience, looking out for your best interests every step of the way. One of the keys to that success is valuing the role of other organisations in the process. As your appointed agent, we actively liaise with the real estate agent; building inspectors; lenders, and mortgage broker—taking all the communication and admin headaches off your hands. 

If you’re buying or selling a house, get in touch with us to discuss your residential property settlement.

Strata Title Property Settlements

Strata title properties include units, apartments, townhouses, or even houses that have been divided into lots. Dealing with these requires an up-to-date understanding of by-laws and legislation, such as the Strata Titles Act 1985 & the Strata Titles Amendment Act 2018. 

With strata schemes in Perth, WA changing and evolving, the conveyancing process is often more complex than a normal residential property settlement. Strata title property settlements require deep experience and contemporary knowledge—along with close collaboration with strata managers and management groups. Talk to our expert strata conveyancing agents about your settlement today.

Subdivisions & Developments

A growing demand for subdivision and development – whether it be new plans or consolidating existing plans – requires specialists who understand the process. This includes communicating with external parties such as the WA Planning Commission and Project Managers, preparing specific subdivision documents, as well as monitoring the subdivision process itself. To speak with us about your subdivision and development plans, contact us today.

At Peacock Settlements, we recognise that the process of subdividing land or embarking on a development project can be complex. With our experienced and dedicated team by your side, we aim to simplify the process as much as possible, ensuring your subdivision or development project is a success.

Vacant Land Settlements

Whether you’re selling off old land or buying a new piece of land to build, it’s important to understand the location of the property, any restrictions or easements, and how that may affect the conditions and agreed price of the transaction. 

While the land itself is empty, there are many factors that make the settlement more complex than they seem—from planned facilities and amenities to water and electrical services, rights of access, and boundary limits. All of these require legal certainty to ensure the settlement process is above board and there are no issues for the new owner. Speak to us today to find out more about your vacant land settlement.


Commercial & Industrial Property

Regardless of the size of your enterprise, your commercial property is a large (and expensive) ongoing financial commitment. 

Commercial and industrial property settlements can run into the millions and require close attention to detail. For this reason, you need a deep and current understanding of by-laws and legislation required in the process. To make sure your commercial property settlement is as seamless as possible, speak to one of our team members to find out more.


Broadcare Farming Transactions & Pastrol Stations

Transferring ownership of farms and acreage requires specialist knowledge in the field (no pun intended) due to the complexity of the transactions. 

Along with the land, this may include dealing with water licences, stock brands, machinery and equipment for broadacre farming transactions; and engaging with the Minister of Lands, among other general settlement requirements when transferring pastoral stations. Handling these transactions requires a lot of care and specific attention, with Peacock Settlements being one of the few agencies in WA with the expertise and knowledge to handle these types of dealings. You can learn more about your broadacre farming transactions and pastoral stations by speaking to one of our specialist conveyancers.


Private Sales

By-laws and legislation around property sales change over time. Dealing with the intricacies of private sales – without a real estate agent – requires many considerations. Many of the processes usually taken up by your real estate agent will still need to be completed, such as entering a Contract for the Sale of Land or Strata Title by Offer and Acceptance, and reviewing all the details within the contract. Figuring out the desired outcome of your transaction and understanding how to achieve it, and communicating with the party on the other end of the transaction, can be a time-consuming and complex process. Our team is well equipped to deal with and assist you with the process. Enquire today about your private sale.

Embarking on a private sale can be a rewarding venture, providing you with greater control and potentially saving you significant costs. At Peacock Settlements, we offer specialised services to guide you through the private sales process, ensuring a seamless and efficient settlement.


Deceased Estates

Handling deceased estates can be a very complex process, including transferring property shares to beneficiaries and dealing with transmission applications. The intricacies of dividing the property and assets of someone who has passed away can be a stressful experience, especially after losing a loved one. However, our team can provide guidance during this process and ensure a seamless experience while considering the complexities of your situation.


Related Party Transfers

Buying or selling property from a family member, co-owner, or other related parties, requires special care due to the skills required to affect the transfer. Related party transfers can often be complex due to personal reasons, and communicating with the party at the other end of the transaction can be difficult, especially considering other duties such as preparing documentation, liaising with your bank, and other general settlement requirements. At Peacock Settlements, we believe in the importance of tailored approaches and are equipped to accommodate your individual needs. Talk to us today about your related party transfer.

Transferring property between related parties, be it, family members or business associates, can be a tricky process requiring careful navigation. At Peacock Settlements, we bring our expertise to facilitate smooth and efficient related party transfers, ensuring all legal obligations are met.


Landgate Searches & Document Lodgement Services

Conveyancing through paper is no longer accepted, unless special exceptions are made. Electronic processes for searches and document lodgement are now standard practice, but requires specific knowledge of what you’re looking for, and how to look for it. Obtaining certificates of titles, surveys, mortgages, leases, and other documents from the land and property authority is a time-consuming, but important part of conveyancing. Speak to our team today about your search and document lodgement needs.
