Frequently Asked Questions

What is Conveyancing?

‘Conveyancing’ is legal work carried out by Licensed Conveyancers and Solicitors to transfer property ownership from one person or entity to another.

When do you contact your Licensed Conveyancer/Solicitor?

The earlier you contact your legal representative the better.
If you’re selling your home, your contract will need to be prepared before the agent can market your property. If you’re buying, get in touch with your Licensed Conveyancer/Solicitor well before you go looking for your property so you can become acquainted with the buying process and also factor in the legal costs to your budget. The more knowledge you have the more confident and faster you can move to buy that property.

How long does conveyancing take?

A typical contract for sale can be prepared within 5 business days. The standard settlement period is 6 weeks after contracts have been exchanged. “Settlement” means the day when the property is legally transferred and when the keys are handed over. Settlement terms can be negotiated before signing the contract.

Why choose a Licensed Conveyancer?

A great Licensed Conveyancer will speak your language. Watch out for legal jargon. Plain English means no confusion, no intimidation and a clearer understanding of your legal rights in the contract.
