  • Contact your area specialist within the team at Brookes Partners in order to receive details appurtenant to all new listings and “Buyer Alerts”.
  • Appoint a solicitor or licensed conveyancer to act on your behalf and forward a copy of the Contract for Sale of Land to them for their perusal and comment.
  • Obtain pest and building reports, survey reports, valuation reports, strata searches where and if required.
