Strata Tip #69: Settlement – Settlement is like making sausages

You should stay away from settlement; avoid watching the process and simply enjoy the outcome! Whether it’s settlements being rescheduled, buyers losing their transfer documents, settlement agents getting held up in traffic or any number of other normal events, some settlements will be delayed, others will fall through and none of that should be witnessed by you first hand. Instead go to your office, or the local coffee shop with your laptop & phone and catch up on some reading. When your lawyer needs you to make a decision you’ll be on hand to receive a (pithy) summary, instead of seeing the whole production.
