What is Conveyancing?
What is Conveyancing, and do I need it?
Conveyancing is the process of transferring the ownership of a property from one party to another. A conveyancer is the one whose job it is to provide the advice and information about the sale of a property. It is also their job to prepare the documentation and carry out the settlement process.
Why engage a Conveyancer
Not sure if you need conveyancing? Well, are you buying or selling a property? Perhaps you need to subdivide a piece of land, or update a title? You may also be looking at registering, changing or removing an easement from your block of land. If you need any of these things sorted, then you need a conveyancer.
Once the search for your dream home has come to an end and you have found ‘the one,’ there’s still more work to be done. The legal part of the process now comes into play. It is wise for both the buyer and seller to appoint a conveyancer to navigate this process on their behalf. A conveyancer knows the ins and outs of property agreements that can be very hard for you to work out on your own. If buying or selling, you will be asked by the real estate agent to provide your conveyancer details. These details are used for the sales and purchase agreement.
A conveyancer does many things for both the buyer and the seller. For the buyer, the conveyancer takes care of such things as: lodge legal documents, research the property, settle the property and put the deposit money in a trust account. For the seller, the conveyancer takes care of such things as: complete and make sure that all of the legal documents are sorted, and represent you and respond to any requests from the buyer.
