Conveyancing is a necessary part of buying and selling property. It facilitates the legal transfer of ownership between the buyer and seller. Both the buyer and the seller usually hire their own conveyancers to act on their behalf.
Although you can try and do your conveyancing yourself, it’s best to hire an expert who understands all the legal jargon associated with buying and selling property. They can also help you to understand your rights.
If you’re buying a property, a conveyancer will:
- Represent your interests with the seller, their real estate agent or conveyancer.
- Research the certificate of title on the property, so you can be sure of what you’re buying.
- Prepare and lodge all the necessary legal documentation.
- Put your deposit money in a trust account prior to the property settlement date.
- Settle the property on your behalf, including arranging the transfer of the final payment.
If you’re selling a property, a conveyancer will represent your interests with the buyer or their conveyancer, as well as prepare all your legal documents relating to the sale.
