Property & Conveyancing

Property & Conveyancing

Conveyancing is the process of transferring ownership of a property from a seller to a buyer.  To ensure that the sale process runs as smoothly as possible it’s wise to engage a solicitor as your conveyancer.  We can prepare and review all documentation required for the sale, including the vendor’s statement and the contract of sale.

Other reasons to engage a specialist property lawyer as your conveyancer may include more complex issues that arise such as:  subdividing land; updating a title and registering, changing or removing an easement.  

Buying and selling real estate and buying and selling property - there are many things for you to consider and our conveyancers and property lawyers have the experience to help you with what could be one of the largest transactions you will ever enter into.

We will keep you informed of the costs, fees and charges associated with buying and selling property.  We can answer your question about whether you should ask a conveyancer or a lawyer to assist you with your particular property purchase or property sale.
