Residential Purchase

The Role of a Conveyancer

During the conveyancing process, we liaise with various parties involved in the transaction, such as real estate agents, lenders, and government authorities. We ensure that all necessary documents are prepared, signed, and lodged with the relevant authorities, which includes the transfer of ownership documents, mortgage documents, and any other legal requirements specific to the jurisdiction.

And most importantly, we are here to coordinate the settlement process. This process involves arranging the exchange of funds between the buyer, seller, and their respective lenders. It’s our role as your conveyancers to ensure that all financial obligations are met, including the payment of stamp duty, registration fees, and any outstanding rates or taxes.

Our conveyancing team is the largest in the area, with over 20 years of experience working with clients purchasing property. Our team is here to ensure the conveyancing process is straightforward & stress-free for our clients, and to provide them with expertise throughout their matter to ensure they feel at ease & supported.
