Are you in the market to buy a new property, or in the process of selling? We all know how nerve-wracking that can be. Choose D.I.Y conveyancing and from negotiation to settlement your stress levels will skyrocket, and you’ll still need a conveyancer for the specialist legal details. To ease the burden and avoid mistakes, get advice right from the beginning.
A conveyancer will help you meet the legal obligations and ensure your rights are protected during the buying or selling transaction.
What else can a conveyancer do for you?
When buying or selling property, the terms and conditions included in the contract must be clear for both parties. Every sentence has a purpose and every condition stipulated needs to be very clear. So while you might think drafting a contract can’t be that hard, the reality is that many legal battles are won and lost due to badly drawn up contracts. Proper guidance from legal counsel from the beginning helps ensure a fair settlement for both parties.
Legal documents must be prepared and handled by a legal professional.
Buying or selling property is likely to be the biggest purchase or sale you ever make; for your own protection, the documents need to be accurate.
A conveyancer can assist you in preparing the contract, as well as all other documents needed like Land Title, Vendor’s Statement and other necessary papers to complete the real estate transaction.
How to Spot a Good Conveyancer
Nothing beats a personal recommendation from a trusted friend, colleague or family member.
Try to ask questions about that person’s particular experience with a conveyancer though, don’t just rely on, ‘My uncle does that,’ or, ‘I know someone who used this person.’ When your hard earned cash is at stake, you want to know that the person recommending someone has actual experience in using that person for conveyancing.
Have you heard about forum sites? You’ll find reviews, feedback, comments and mentions from different people based on their experience. If you have enough time to search and check, forums could be a good place to start your research. You can also google Conveyancing Solicitors and check the reviews in the responses you get.

Before you hire anyone, make sure they’re licenced. Never assume the person you choose is legally allowed to carry out the work they do. Licensed professionals are committed to being accountable for their actions. If they are not registered choose someone else.
