Every property has a title of ownership. A conveyancer oversees and manages, the actual transaction of this title from one person to another person. This is what people refer to as conveyancing.
Conveyancers are different from a lawyer as they have been trained in just conveyancing. There are lawyers though who specialise in just conveyancing.
The role, and timing, of the conveyancer’s role does differ from state to state, but generally they are involved in preparing and or reviewing the sales contract, mortgage and other related documents when buying or selling a home, land or investment property.
Sellers and buyers both need a conveyancer to complete the sale and transfer. Chose one early in your property journey.
For sellers, they prepare the sales contract as well as organise any other legally required documentation.
For buyers, we advise you appoint one before you sign any legal documentation. They will verify boundaries, easements or planning restrictions which can drastically alter a property’s potential.
In short, they can help prevent you buying a lemon.
You can do the work yourself but it is rather complex and if you get this wrong it can mean years of pain.
