Selling Your Property…. A Conveyancer’s Checklist

When it comes to buying a house there are many things that can become complicated for the property purchaser.

This is a time when you need to have your own property conveyancer to handle the transaction.

What Does My Conveyancer Do for Me When I Am Buying A House?

Things that your property conveyancer will help you with when buying a house include:

  • Ensuring that the conveyancing process is transparent
  • Advising you on the contract terms, including those terms hidden in fine print, which you may not be aware of.
  • Drafting any special conditions that may need to be included in your contract.
  • Liaising with your bank or lender and building/pest/pool inspectors to ensure all contract conditions are met by the due dates.
  • Negotiating extensions or amendments to the purchase contract if issues arise as a result of the contract conditions.
  • Conducting property searches to verify that the warranties given by the seller under the contract are true and correct.
  • Advising you on how to deal with issues that may come out of the property searches.
  • Preparing and certifying all legal documents.
  • Liaising with your bank or lender and the seller’s representatives to ensure that settlement is completed on the agreed settlement date.
  • Calculating settlement adjustments and preparing your settlement statement.
  • Ensuring that at settlement you obtain clear title of the property. 

What Costs Are Involved with a Property Conveyancer?
