Frequently asked questions…
Conveyancing is the process of transferring legal ownership of property. Conveyancers ensure that the property is
transferred free from unwanted encumbrances, like mortgages or caveats, and that there are no nasty surprises associated with the title of the property. We also arrange for registration of documents needed to effect the transfer of title.
You do not need a lawyer to complete the conveyancing process, but many people find completing the necessary documents and certificate of title searches confusing and stressful. Using a qualified conveyancing agent or solicitor can save you a lot of time and hassle as well as helping to ensure that you do not incur unnecessary fees and charges.
Settlements generally involve the solicitors or conveyancing agents for the purchaser and seller meeting to exchange the necessary documents and funds to effect the transfer of the property. If there is a mortgage associated with the property then an agent from the bank normally attends settlement as well.
No. We will attend settlement on your behalf and let you know when settlement is complete.
Costs for conveyancing vary. To obtain a cost estimate for your matter please call us on (03) 6224 6777.
