Solomon Brothers have a highly experienced team of property settlement lawyers in our Perth office, who are qualified and capable of providing full property settlement services at highly competitive prices. The department is run by a licensed settlement agent and handles all types of property settlement matters (including acting for developers on settlements of subdivision projects).

The Settlements department is backed by a strong support team and prides itself on being able to provide a smooth settlement experience. The partner responsible for the settlements department has over 35 years’ experience and has specialised in property and commercial matters, both in conveyancing and in dispute resolution.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please see below for some of our most frequently asked questions. We’ve provided some clarity around the role of settlement agents and the extent of their legal services, as well as fees and settlement agent costs, with an overview of how our team of property settlement lawyers in Perth provide ongoing support to our valued clients.

What is a settlement agent?

A settlement agent is a professional who manages the exchange of real estate after a sale, as well as other dealings in real estate. In some states, a settlement agent is referred to as a conveyancer.

What is the role of settlement agents?

The role of settlement agents is to assist in the process of the transfer of ownership of property from a seller to a buyer. Settlement agents have the necessary qualifications and licences to ensure that all legal requirements for the transfer of the title to the property are complied with for the title to be registered in the name of the new owner. The settlement process can be complex and it is prudent to use a qualified professional to guide you through the process to the completion of the settlement.

In addition to this, settlement agents can also attend to survivorship applications, change of name applications and subdivisions of land applications.

Are there any services that settlement agents are legally unable to process?

Yes – while a settlement agent can register mortgages and caveats, they are legally unable to prepare them. However, our experienced legal team of property settlement lawyers at Solomon Brothers are able to both prepare and register mortgages and caveats with a full-service provision beyond the service levels of most settlement agents.

What is an independent settlement agent?

An independent settlement agent is not affiliated with a real estate agent or a developer, whereas most other settlement agents have some affiliation.

Why choose an independent settlement agent?

It is worth considering an independent settlement agent as they act only in your interest. Whilst there are sometimes differences in the settlement agent cost structure, the main benefit here is that there are no competing considerations about whether the sale or purchase can go through, and if there is a problem, the independent settlement agent can inform and assist you accordingly.

Why choose a settlement agent in a law firm?

As things don’t always go smoothly when real estate changes hands, we recommend choosing Solomon Brothers to act on your settlement. Any serious problems can be immediately looked at by one of our property settlement lawyers in Perth, giving you peace of mind and assurance of where you stand. Thanks to our competitive fees and experienced team, we are able to ensure our clients are well looked after whilst benefiting from an affordable settlement agent cost and dedicated team.

Is it more expensive to choose a settlement agent in a law firm?

No – when it comes to settlement agent costs, the Solomon Brothers Settlements Team are available at highly competitive rates to support you through your settlement. If legal advice is required, our competitive legal fees will be fully communicated ahead of any work being carried out, and our experienced team of property settlement lawyers can assist you with any legal representation as needed.
