Whether you are a first time home buyer or an experienced property investor, a conveyancer helps you buy or sell property so that the process runs smoothly and successfully. They can do as little and as much as you need and provide key legal advice along the way. Finding a conveyancer that tailors their services to suit your needs will provide peace of mind, and the most important thing–value for money.
The most important things that a conveyancer can do for you include:
For selling property, a conveyancer will draw up the Contract of Sale and ensure that any special conditions or requirements are included in the final contract. They can also prepare the Vendor’s Statement, ensuring you meet all of the obligations in your state or territory.
These are the two most important documents that a conveyancer can prepare for sellers, but they can also prepare further ancillary documents that are part of the settlement process. Preparing all the necessary documents will help to protect you from any potential conflict down the track.
For buying property, they will prepare all of the transfer documents that are required to secure the rightful and legal transfer of property to you. They will also read over the Contact of Sale and other documents supplied by the seller to ensure that there are no hidden surprises or undesirable clauses. Having someone representing your best interests in this process will give you peace of mind that nothing is missed.
Conveyancers will organise everything you need at settlement and be able to represent you when both parties meet to finalise settlement.
For selling property, they will ensure all documents are finalised and everything is prepared for settlement day. They will meet with the buyers representative and ensure everything runs smoothly for you. After settlement, they will make sure everything is lodged and the final details are organised, such as informing your real estate agent so they can hand the keys over to the buyer.
For buying property, they will liaise with the seller’s representative to organise settlement and ensure the transfer happens without problem. They can also talk to your bank to ensure that funds are in place for settlement. After settlement is reached, they will tie up any loose ends and contact the seller’s real estate agent to ensure your new home is ready.
On top of handling the process of buying or selling property, conveyancers also provide legal advice every step of the way. They know the ins and outs of the industry, as well as what is legally required of you in the state you live in. The advice they provide can be invaluable and may help you avoid making costly mistakes.
