After a rollercoaster of checking and inspections, you finally find your dream property. It’s close to the school your kids attend, comes with a pleasant neighbourhood, and fits within your budget. Now here comes all the bunch of paperwork!
If you are a first-time buyer or property investor, we bet you might not have heard of ‘conveyancing’ before! In fact, ‘unconditional, settlement, and ‘cooling-off period’ are important terms you may not be overly familiar with. Whether you are buying or selling a property, the settlement process for conveyancing is a tedious procedure that includes several financial and administrative duties.
It is not a legal requirement, but for a reasonable cost, you can have a Conveyancing Solicitor act on your behalf, giving you more time to give more attention to moving with your family.
Transferring property to a new owner or entity involves various paperwork, and a conveyancing transaction typically consists of three stages:
A conveyancer looks after the whole settlement process, making sure the clients are prepared for critical timelines during the procedure.
As far as one can tell, conveyancing transactions might appear very straightforward. Still, in most cases, many home buyers and sellers do not fully realise the full amount of technicality, documentation, and work that goes into legally transferring a property to a new owner.
For first-time to seasoned property investors who haven’t had much experience navigating this area of law, it could take weeks (and sometimes months) to find and lodge legal documents, let alone understand them.
Buying a property is a daunting task. The overall transaction can involve a lot of time and money to coordinate, especially when setbacks and challenges emanate along the way.
Conveyancing requires enough effort and time to analyse, review, and finalise all the paperwork involved in the process. It usually incorporates transactions between you and vendors, real estate agents, mortgage brokers, building inspectors, banks, and government agencies.
For the most part, you’ll also be pressured to have a grasp of all the financial and legal documentation revolving around the process.
