What happens on settlement day?

Typically:
  • The lender authorises payment of the loan, and payment is made to the vendor;
  • You (or your solicitor) authorise the vendor to collect the deposit money that has been held by the real estate agent, in trust;
  • You receive a signed transfer of title deed and your solicitor or bank will arrange for the Registrar
  • General to register the transfer and the loan;
  • You pay the stamp duty on the home loan;
  • You are given the keys and the house is yours!
