Conveyancing is the transfer of ownership or interest in real property from one person to another.
Conveyancing is usually completed by a licensed conveyancer (us) or a solicitor. You can do it yourself, but the complexity of the Federal, State and Local laws makes it an unwise choice.
The conveyancing process typically takes four to six weeks and includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- Title searches
- Checking for encumbrances and restrictions on the property
- Ensuring any special conditions mentioned in the contract are met
- Making sure rates, land tax and water consumption charges are paid by the appropriate party
- Arranging for the payment of fees and charges
- Preparation of legal documents.
