What we can do for Purchasers
Undertaking a conveyance (attending to the transfer of a property) may seem a simple process that takes little time. Nothing is further from the truth! Conveyancing is a complex series of tasks that require knowledge and skill – which is the reason that conveyancers must hold special qualifications and be licensed.
Below is a list of tasks required to fulfil a conveyancer’s legal obligations to you where a mortgage is to be registered. Because this task list reflects the commonly accepted legal requirements for a conveyance, all fee estimates must be benchmarked against this list.
Occasionally a transaction involves more work than usual. Time may also be required to advise a purchaser (e.g. in relation to documentation or rights or liaising with your lender) or a transaction may involve extra tasks (e.g. liaising with a GST expert or dealing with an encumbrance or contractual breach). In such cases, your conveyancer is entitled to charge an additional fee unless the work has been allowed for in any fee estimate.
