Conveyancing is one of the most important steps involved in buying or selling a property, but it can be confusing and potentially risky if done incorrectly. Conveyancing is simply a term used to describe the transfer of legal title from one person or entity to another. It usually involves entering into a property agreement, or Contract of Sale.
Conveyancing can be done by an individual, a licensed conveyancer or a solicitor. Whilst there may be perceived short term cost advantages in conducting a conveyance yourself, there are a number of advantages in using an experienced profession for this task to avoid pitfalls.
If you are looking to purchase a property, our conveyancing team can assist with perusal of the Contract of Sale and Section 32 Vendors Statement, preparing and lodging a caveat, conducting relevant searches, preparing the Transfer of Land and preparing for settlement and notifying authorities. We also undertake conveyancing for retirement village units, which can be complex with a lengthy sale time.
If you are looking to sell your property, our conveyancing team can assist with the preparation of the Section 32 Vendors Statement, preparation of Auction Contract (if applicable), perusing the contract, answering requisitions on title, organising the discharge of mortgage (if applicable), preparing the release of deposit, preparing for settlement and notifying authorities.
Our costs are competitive and we believe it is worth the extra effort to engage a solicitor to ensure this important decision is made with a minimum of fuss and with utmost confidence.
