Are you ready to jump into the residential property market? Maybe you’ve finally found your first home or maybe you’ve finally found your dream location. Whatever stage you’re at, a professional conveyancer can help you.
There are plenty of confusing elements in the property process and we can take care of all of them for you. Make sure your rights are protected – from the moment you start looking to long after you sign your contract.
The Legal Side of Buying
There’s more to buying a home than simply packing your bags and picking up the keys. The legal side of your purchase involves a wide range of documents, research and taxes. Luckily, you don’t need to navigate this process alone.
Conveyancers are legal property experts, taking care of everything from broad real estate advice to the settlement process. Our team has more than 50 years of combined experience protecting your rights. We’ll represent you throughout the entire process to ensure that the vendor’s interests don’t negatively impact you.
Let us Handle the Paperwork
We recommend you contact our team once you have started looking for your home so that we can make the process easier from the very beginning. We can advise if something like buying off the plan – i.e. buying land that is yet to be developed – is right for you. There are a multitude of things we can assist you with once you’ve found the right home too.
When you find the property that might be ‘the one’, we will conduct thorough research to make sure there are no hidden surprises or easements.
When you’re ready to buy, we will prepare all of your legal documents. From the contract of sale to transfer documents, we can ensure that everything is completed correctly and lodged on time. This means less stress and less costs for you.
Speaking of lower costs, we submit applications for any grants you might be eligible for and can calculate the adjustment of rates and taxes, like stamp duty. This means extra money in your pocket and no surprises when it comes to your costs.
Settling the Property
Once your offer on a property has been accepted, it will be time to settle the deal. This involves conversations with your financial institution and the seller or their agent. A great conveyancing service is critical at this stage.
We can represent your rights and close the deal, making sure that there are no surprises in your contract. We’ll even contact your financial institution to tell them when final payments are being made, so you won’t need to worry about that either.
What are the Costs?
Our service will save you time and money in the long run, by making sure that there are no harmful conditions in your contact and no legal problems with your property. From research to settlement, a typical service will cost around:
- $371.00 for Government and council searches
- $880.00 for conveyancing fees
