Conveyancing is the process by which real estate is sold from one party to another. It begins with exchanging signed contracts and the buyer paying the seller a deposit, and ends with “settlement” some time later, where the seller transfers legal ownership of the property to the buyer in return for the balance of the purchase price. If you are buying or selling property in Victoria, we can assist you throughout the entire transaction.
Our conveyancing services include:
preparing or reviewing the Section 32 Vendor Statement and the Contract of Sale of Real Estate;
identifying any issues relating to the legal title of the property;
assist you to negotiate any changes to the legal terms of the contract;
advising you of your legal rights and obligations;
liaising with your real estate agent in both auctions and private sales;
ensuring that the deposit is banked in an appropriate trust account;
undertaking any necessary legal or statutory searches and enquiries;
verifying that the contract is validly signed and exchanged;
lodging caveats and priority notices;
drafting the legal documentation;
calculating the final money payable at settlement;
coordinating any outgoing or incoming mortgages with your lender;
attending to settlement;
stamping the contract with the State Revenue Office;
