Deborah Low

WA Head Lawyer
“Clients can expect absolute honesty from me, and what I don’t know, I will find out for you”
During my years of experience, I have developed an efficient, human approach. My aim in every settlement is to get a win-win outcome for both parties: this isn’t court and we are working toward the same goal. To achieve this, transparency is essential, as is a friendly and honest communication with my clients and with the other file owner.
Outside of settlements: I usually cook up a storm in the kitchen.

Jasmine Lim

File Owner
“My calm personality puts the clients at ease.”

Buying a house, especially for first home buyers, can be quite a daunting process. For this reason, my aim is to give the client a warm customer service by being calm, collected and empathetic. I will always encourage my clients to keep the conversation flowing and to be upfront with their needs, questions, desires and expectations. Listening is, to me, crucial.

Outside of settlements: I teach Zumba classes.

Outside of settlements: I often travel or go to the movie theatre
Think Settlement Agent Perth Difference

Cheap And Cheerful
Settlement Agency
May not be a Law Firm

Settlement Agency

To remain the “cheapest” in the market, key services are excluded and SOLD later as optional Extras (Beware of the fine print).


Administration

Often times, the most important aspect of the process – ADVICE – is excluded and incorrectly only provided at additional cost. This reduces the value of the service and the protections it affords a customer enormously and often results in unnecessary risk to you.


Experience

Settling is one thing, getting there without pulling your hair out through the process is another.


Qualification

File Owners in WA operate under something known as a limited Legal Mandate. A File Owner and a Lawyer are not equal in terms of the services they can render and their are occasions where a File Owner is required to refer work to Lawyer. This could cost you Thousands if you are not under a fixed fee retainer with a Lawyer.


Service

Not all settlements are equal. When it comes to the days leading up to settlement you need to know that your File Owner is there for you. The risk with a low-cost alternative is that you can’t get ahold of who you need when you need resulting in UNFORSEEN costs.

General Practice Law Firm
Family, Criminal,
International and Property

Charges Per Hour

This premium offer, often charged on an hourly basis, is generally performed by junior staff under the supervision of a lawyer who is a generalist only.


Advice

It could fairly be expected that the advice provided by these offices meets with the minimum requirement. A lack of frequent exposure in day to day practice, may result in a failure to anticipate.


Experience

Your experience should be AMAZING. After all, a good comparison is your buying a BENTLEY when in reality, you likely only need a Holden!


General Qualification

Despite the expense of this alternative, the lack of repeated experience with the settlement process on a day to day basis generally means less familiarity with the overarching process. Given the rapid changes in the category, this can often lead to delays due to a lack of foresight born out of a generalist approach to law.


Service

Service at this end of the market is to be expected, after all, your paying a premium for it.

What To Expect With Our Service
Click on the tab below that best describes you
  • I AM A BUYER
  • I AM A SELLER
  • You Want To Buy Property
  • You Need A Contract Review
  •  Negotiate & Safely Sign
  • Your Conveyancing Starts
  • Your Conveyancing Starts
  • Settlement Attendance
  • Congratulations On Your Purchase!
Step 1: Congratulations!
You’ve found the perfect property. But did you know:
  • Contracts are often-one sided in favour of the Seller. That means less protection for you, particularly if something goes wrong;
  • The contract may be only a few pages but every contract is governed by the Joint Form of General Conditions which is about 21 pages long;
  • And that legal jargon often means something totally different (for you).
The first steps in gaining confidence is to call our team. They will help you understand exactly what it is you need to do.
Step 2: Consider A Contract Review
If you’re uncertain about the Contract, you can ask our Lawyer to:

  • Review the Contract line-by-line and call you to have a brief chat about your concerns and highlight risks, issues and red-flags;
  • Suggest favourable amendments that mitigates risk and email you a report with tailored special conditions;
Step 3: Negotiate & Sign Contract

Your lawyer can explain the impact of the special conditions noted in the Contract to you and propose amendments if required, to better protect you as the Buyer.
Now that you’re armed with the suggestions provided in the review, if needed, you will know what is fair to negotiate and the special conditions you should ask to be included.
Step 4: Your Conveyancing Starts
FRIENDLY, RESPONSIVE, START TO SETTLEMENT CARE
Once you’ve signed, we’ll take care of the details so you don’t have to
Your File Owner will:
  • Hold your hand throughout the conveyancing process;
  • Organise, anticipate and make sure you meet all statutory requirements;
  • Double confirm and get sign-off from the Lawyer before settlement;
  • Should anything go wrong, work hand in hand with the Lawyer;
  • Set the groundwork for you to reach an on-time settlement.
Step 5: Avoid Inheriting Debt
Should unpaid bills not be discovered during the conveyancing process by error, outstanding debts will be transferred to you, the Buyer.
Significant debts could include: Unpaid Land Tax, Accrued Council Rates, Water Bills to make the garden pretty for sale, Outstanding Body Corporate.
This is where your File Owner will add value and security to your transaction. We run adjustments to make sure this doesn’t happen to you.
Step 6: Electronic Settlement
THE FINAL STEP TO MAKE IT OFFICIAL

The final step is Settlement and that’s the day you assume legal ownership of your property. Settlement is completed electronically on the PEXA platform. In the days leading up to Settlement, your File Owner will be checking documents on PEXA and making sure that the paperwork submitted by all the parties involved are in order. Everything is checked and signed off by our Lawyer on the day of Settlement.
Settlement will only happen when your Lawyer, the Seller’s lawyer and both banks (incoming and outgoing mortgagee, if applicable) have digitally signed off on the transaction.
Once Settlement is complete, your File Owner will notify the Real Estate Agent so that you can collect the keys.
Step 7: Congratulations On Your Purchase!
GET THE KEYS FROM THE AGENT
Call the Agent, take ownership
After briefly basking in the glory of a job well done, it’s right back to work for your File Owner. Your File Owner will notify the rating authorities that you are the new owner and also keep an eye on the the Certificate of Title so that they can let you know when the property has been registered in your name (this may take up to a month depending on the Land Titles Office).
Meanwhile, your Agent will give you a call to let you know when to pick up the keys. Now all you need to do is let your family know that you’re a proud new property owner. Congratulations!

AND IT’S TIME TO NOMINATE A SETTLEMENT AGENT
  • You will need to have a Contract drafted;
  • And you need a Lawyer to do this for you;
  • You will also benefit from someone guiding you.
Play it safe and give us a call.
Contract Of Sale Drafted
YOU NEED THIS FOR A SAFE AND SUCCESSFUL SALE
Speak to a Lawyer for Advice….
Having a Lawyer review or draft your Contract is the most value-added step of the entire transaction. This is where you will benefit from legal advice that will further bind the Buyer to their purchase.
Wait For A Serious Buyer
Great, your property is on the market! But when a serious Buyer comes along, they will often negotiate for items like:
  • Inclusions; e.g The potted plants, chandelier, the BBQ?
  • Exclusions; e.g Removal or change of a condition?
  • Terms; e.g Payment Conditions, Settlement Dates?
While it will be up to you to agree or not, you’ll have the benefit of our experience on what is fair and what is not. Should you agree to their requests, let us know. We’ll update the Contract.
Next step: Have the fully signed Contract sent to us so we can begin the conveyance.
Conveyancing Starts
Conveyancing is the legal process of changing the ownership of property from one party to another. And the moment the Contract is signed is the moment your team gets into heavy gear!
As part of our sophisticated process, your Lawyer will brief and direct your Settlement Agent. As an added measure of protection, the Lawyer will always be required to sign off on the all Settlement Agents work.
Your Settlement Agent will:
  • Hold your hands throughout the conveyancing process;
  • Organise, anticipate and make sure you meet all statutory requirements;
  • Double confirm and get sign-off from the Lawyer;
  • Should anything go wrong, work hand in hand with the Lawyer;
  • Set the groundwork for you to reach an on-time settlement.
Next step: Sit tight as we talk to all the 3rd parties.
Make Adjustments
CHECK THE BUYERS REQUESTS FOR YOU TO PAY BILLS
So you don’t pay more than you need to
UNPAID BILLS – The Buyer’s Settlement Agent will be working hard to find out if you have any outstanding bills on the property. This may include Land Tax, Water Bills, Council Rates, etc.
The Buyer’s Settlement Agent will contact us, and if there is anything outstanding, will request for amounts owed to be paid before settlement. This process is called making the adjustments.
We don’t want you to pay more than you need to, so this is where we step in and double check their claims.
Next step: Wait until settlement day.
Settlement Attendance
The final step is Settlement. And that’s the day you assume legal ownership of your property.
Settlement is completed electronically on the PEXA platform. In the days leading up to Settlement, your Settlement Agent will be checking documents on PEXA and making sure that the paperwork submitted by all the parties involved are in order. Everything is checked and signed off by our Lawyer on the day of Settlement.
Settlement will only happen when your Lawyer, the Buyer’s lawyer and both banks (incoming and outgoing mortgagee, if applicable) have digitally signed off on the transaction.
What you get: A team dedicated to successful Settlement. Your Settlement Agent will prepare the paperwork and processes required and these will always be checked off by your Lawyer. Your Lawyer will also be on the PEXA Platform on the day of Settlement to check and sign off on the transaction, as well as watching the transaction as it happens electronically. That means that if anything goes wrong, your Lawyer will know immediately and be able to take charge.


Next step: Your money released to your account.
Congratulations On The Sale!
THE MONEY IS RELEASED TO YOUR ACCOUNT
Once Settlement is complete, the funds are released to your bank account within 24 hours. No more waiting 2-3 days for bank cheques to clear (as is the case with paper Settlements)!
After briefly basking in the glory of a job well done, it’s right back to work for your Settlement Agent. Your Settlement Agent will do the final paperwork for your file e.g. notifying the Real Estate Agent and rating authorities, and will send an email with all the details.
Meanwhile, your Real Estate Agent will give you a call to let you know that the property was SOLD. Now all you need to do is tell your family about your successful sale! Congratulations!
