Pre-Settlement and Working Order Checks

Settlement is approaching. Seven days before your offer is complete and settlement is finalised, the Real Estate agent will take you through the property for a Pre-Settlement and Working Order inspection.

These are essentially to confirm that the property is more or less in the same condition as it was when you offered to buy it, as well as make sure that everything is working as it should be. Of course there are often exceptions, and these should be noted on your offer and acceptance.

No specialist knowledge is required for these checks, so we usually recommend that you do them yourself if you can. It is always handy to learn the workings and tricks of the house yourself, so do not underestimate the value of this visit.

However, if there is some reason that you can not attend yourself, we can carry out these checks on your behalf.
