Buying and selling residential property is, arguably, the most significant legal transactions of your life. As such, it is important that you receive concise and straightforward advice on how best to deal with the legal issues that affect your transaction.
A standard conveyancing transaction will include:
Title searches – this establishes who the owners of the property are in terms of who is listed on the deed. The Title Deed also includes the official description of the property, which is important for the transfer of documents and establishing exactly what property is being bought or sold.
A check on encumbrances and restrictions on the property – such as heritage listings, easements and other items that may restrict the buyer’s potential use of the property.
Fulfillment of any Special Conditions. Special Conditions in a Contract should be considered and implemented before you sign.
Ensuring the appropriate party pays Council rates, water charges, and land tax and that the property has access to such services.
Arranging for timely payment of fees and charges.
The preparation of all relevant legal documents.
