What is a property settlement?

Property settlement refers to the process of transferring a property from a seller to a buyer, when the conditions of the standard contract for the sale are fulfilled. In most instances before a property settlement can occur, both the buyer and the seller must have signed an Offer & Acceptance Contract. In Western Australia, the standard residential sales contract has two sections:

  • Contract for Sale of Land or Strata Title by Offer and Acceptance (Offer and Acceptance); and
  • Joint Form of General Conditions for the Sale of Land (General Conditions).

The signatures of the seller and the buyer on the Offer and Acceptance indicate that the parties agree to the conditions of the contract, including the purchase price.
