What is conveyancing?
Conveyancing refers to the legal process of transferring ownership of real estate (property) from one party to another. This legal work is carried out by licensed conveyancers and solicitors to transfer the ownership of property from one person or entity to another.
Why should I choose a licensed conveyancer?
A licensed conveyancer has an in-depth understanding of property law, as their sole focus is on property transactions. They carry professional indemnity insurance and fidelity insurance, meaning that clients are covered in the event of an error. You can safely leave your property transaction in the hands of a licensed conveyancer, as they are experienced and qualified to expertly assist in the process. A licensed conveyancer is a specialist professional in the legal intricacies of buying and selling real estate. They will not be distracted by other types of legal work but know property law inside out.
What does a conveyancer do?
Buying or selling a house can be a time-consuming and complex process, which is affected by case law, legislation and contract conditions. When buying a townhouse or unit, the process can also be complicated by the involvement of a body corporate. A conveyancer will take the mystery out of buying or selling a house, reducing stress and worry for clients and smoothing the path of the transaction. They will take care of transfer documentation, searches, communication and settlement for you.
How long does a conveyance take?
A conveyance can take anywhere from 4 – 6 weeks. The actual time taken will depend on how long it takes to ensure all special conditions of the contract are complied with, as well as the result of searches.
