Conveyancing Law

Conveyancing is the transfer of legal title of property from one person to another, or the granting of an encumbrance such as a mortgage or a lien. A typical conveyancing transaction has two major phases often referred to as exchange of contracts and completion.

Buying and selling property can be one the biggest decisions you will make in life – that is why it is so important to receive professional legal advice from informed solicitors before you do so.

Our team of solicitors and conveyancers are highly skilled in residential and commercial property transactions. We will provide you with clear, practical and cost effective advice on your property law matter.

Our objective is to provide you with confidence and peace of mind when you decide to buy or sell property.

Selling a Property

Our conveyancing team endeavour to make the sale of your property a stress free and streamlined process.

It is a legal requirement that a contract for marketing purposes be prepared and made available to potential purchasers prior to your property being advertised for sale. Our team will order the required documents for inclusion in the contract and then prepare the contract to be forwarded to your nominated listing agent. We appreciate that sometimes listing your property can be dependent on life’s time constraints and in view of that we always strive to prepare your contract in accordance with your needs.

Once you find a purchaser for your property we then navigate you through every stage to settlement, including:

    • Assisting with pre-exchange negotiations;
    • Exchanging contracts (this is when the contract becomes legally binding on both parties);
    • Discharge of any mortgage on the property;
    • Attending to adjustments for rates, water and strata levies where applicable;
    • Facilitating settlement and the payment of your proceeds.

Our conveyancing team have the knowledge and experience to ensure your sale is settled as smoothly as possible.
