This elective CPD session tracks a typical residential sale from Offer and Acceptance to final settlement. We will examine the possible paths that a written contract can take, why they commonly fail and how proper preparation in the stages leading up to the offer can be critical to a successful conclusion. Topics covered include avoiding pitfalls in pre-settlement inspections and the proper process in the final handover. Find out what really happens at a settlement and about the role of the settlement agent in bringing the sale to a happy conclusion. We’ll also touch on the most common ways property scams happen and how your attention to detail helps defeat these criminals. Each year real estate practitioners registered or licensed in WA must complete 7 elective CPD points in addition to their 3 point Mandatory session. On successfully completing this module you will earn 1.5 CPD points toward your elective requirement. Approval Code: WCPT155.
