What does a property conveyancer do?
A property conveyancer is qualified to assist in all matters related to the transfer of property. A conveyancer can provide any relevant advice that you need throughout the process, as well as organise any necessary legal documents and inspections. If there are any restrictions or potential legal issues related to your property that you should know about, you conveyancer will let you know. The settlement, transfer of funds and post-settlement proceedings can all be managed by your conveyancer.
As part of their services, your conveyancer will organise any necessary building inspections, prepare and examine your contract of sale, assist you with the payment of your deposit and any other transfer costs, and arrange a land survey if one is required.
Who needs a conveyancer?
Hiring a conveyancer can be very helpful for anyone who is buying or selling property. Qualified conveyancers provide invaluable assistance when it comes to legal documents, processes and possible issues, and can potentially save you a lot of money by helping you to avoid legal complications or fines down the line.
It is also advisable to seek professional help from a conveyancer if you need to update a property title (in the case of a death, for example); in cases where it is necessary to subdivide land; or if you need to register, change or remove a property easement.
How do you choose a conveyancer?
To ensure that you hire a fully qualified and reputable professional, you may choose to check that your chosen conveyancer is registered and licenced with the Australian Institute of Conveyancers (AIC). The AIC is the official body that represents the country’s qualified conveyancers.
When hiring a conveyancer, it is also important that you choose a professional who is committed to guiding you through the entire process. Communication is key and it is helpful to choose a conveyancer who will keep you informed every step of the way. You should be updated every time a milestone is reached so that you are aware of any progress along the way. Chat to your conveyancing team about the processes and systems that they have in place, and feel free to raise any questions or concerns that you might have regarding the sale or purchase of your property.
