Property condition at settlement

Moving in and out of a property can be a tedious task. So what condition does it need to be left in to ensure compliance with the contract?

The terms of the contract provide that the property must be at a ‘reasonable’ standard at settlement. Whilst this does not necessarily mean that the property should be professionally cleaned, it should definitely be given a once over to avoid issues arising on the settlement day. All belongings should be removed and it is best to plan ahead to ensure that the move out process runs smoothly. 

In terms of damage and maintenance, remember, the property should be handed over to the buyer in the same condition as it was when the contract was signed so be careful when moving furniture to not cause any damage to the property.
