How The Conveyancing Process Works

The conveyancing process can be filled with legal jargon. As such, it is important to approach this with understanding and proper support.

The process starts with the draft contract of sale being drawn up. This includes street address and legal property title details, completion period, inclusions and exclusions of sale and any special conditions specific to the particular property.

The purchaser needs to get legal advice, review the contract, arrange inspections and start making loan arrangements before any contracts are signed.

The contract is signed by both parties, and may be immediately binding, depending on the circumstances of the sale. You may however, have a cooling off period available, or be able to withdraw from the contract under certain conditions, so it’s important that you know the exact terms and conditions written into the contract.

Prior to settlement, adjustments to the purchase price are agreed upon between the parties to cover council and water rates as well as other costs which may be allowed for in the contract. There is a set length of time between the contract becoming binding and the contract being settled or completed. In this time the purchaser of the property has a lot to do including conducting various checks on the property, paying transfer duty, organising insurance and getting any loan arrangements in order, and the seller of the property should be making arrangements with their bank to have any mortgage discharged as well as making plans to move.

We’ll ensure everything is in place for a smooth settlement. The purchaser or the incoming mortgagee has to organise the funds, and the seller or outgoing mortgagee has to provide the property title and the document/s needed to release the mortgage.

After settlement the new owner needs to be registered as the owner on the title, and various government bodies need to be informed of the change in ownership.
