When can I pick up the keys to my new property?

The Joint Form of General Conditions for the Sale of Land in Western Australia provides for keys and associated devices such as remote controls etc to be given to Buyers immediately following Settlement for properties where the Seller is not an owner/occupier.

However, if the Seller is an owner/occupier, the General Conditions give the Seller until 12.00 noon the day following Settlement to move out and deliver the keys to you. Of course, you can negotiate an earlier handover time if all parties agree to do so.
