If a sole proprietor or a tenant-in-common has passed away, a Transmission Application can transfer the deceased’s share of the property to the beneficiaries.
Our team of friendly and experienced conveyancers can complete a Transmission Application carefully and efficiently. Once you’ve been granted probate or letters of administration, we’ll contact all relevant parties to ensure we understand your unique circumstances. Then, we’ll:
Conduct the relevant title searches
Prepare an application to transfer the property into the name of the Executor or beneficiaries
Prepare a Transfer of Land and other required documentation
Have the Transfer stamped by the Office of State Revenue
Advise government authorities of the change
Lodge the documentation directly with Landgate – or if there’s a mortgage on the property
We’ll attend settlement with the bank
Throughout the process, we’ll keep in close contact with you, your real estate agent, and the seller’s settlement agent. We’ll also liaise with your lending institution – so no detail slips through the cracks.
When you work with Residential Settlements, all initial documentation will be completed within 48 hours. We’ll be ready to complete the transfer as soon as all documentation is signed, and your bank is ready to settle (if applicable).
