Our Services

After choosing a Settlement Agent, the settlement process is only as smooth as the experience and professionalism that is presented to you. At WA Settlement Services, we aim to deliver a professional service that takes the stress out of buying and selling a property.

During the Settlement process, there are many people that need to be coordinated in order for a successful Settlement to take place. Banks, solicitors and agents all need to come together at the same place at the same time in order for a smooth transaction to occur. We offer a range of settlement services to meet all of your settlement needs.

Lost Titles

In unfortunate circumstances, you may lose important documents to do with your property. There is a lot of paperwork to deal with when you are buying real estate. If the problem occurs that you have lost your original property Title, we can take the issue into our own hands and organise a replacement Title for you! That means you are not having to deal with Landgate by yourself.

Court Order Transfers

Have you been issued a court ordered transfer? The court process can be stressful enough without the added headache of the property related paperwork. We can help transfer a shared property into one person’s name with nominal stamp duty.

Change of Name

As if planning a wedding isn't stressful enough, you are also faced with all of the paperwork that comes after it. Let us take some of that stress away from you by handling your property title paperwork. We can update your name on a property title if you decide to get married or change your name for any other reason.

Deceased Estates

Property ownership can often be the last thing on your mind when dealing with the death of a significant other, but it is often one of the most important issues you need to get right. Many people don’t know what needs to be done when it comes to transferring a property into the surviving owner’s name. Let us take the stress out of this situation for you and let our experts help you with this process
