What does my Conveyancer do for me?

As your Conveyancer, we will: –

  • Protect your interests;
  • Be your advocate;

  • Ensure you can exercise your rights and meet your responsibilities

We simplify the complex so you understand the process in full.

 

When should I talk to a Conveyancer?

The earlier the better! You don’t need to wait until you are ready to sign a contract. It makes sense to select your Conveyancer as soon as you decide to buy or sell and never sign anything before seeking your Conveyancer’s advice. It is always better to be safe than sorry!

 

How much does a Conveyancer cost?

The cost of a conveyance depends on many factors that might be involved in the transaction.

Things like are you selling or buying, type of property, whether you are buying or selling privately or through a Real Estate Agent and interests recorded on the title (like a mortgage).

I wish to subdivide my property. Who do I need to contact to get started?

The two people you should contact are a Surveyor and a Conveyancer. The Surveyor prepares the plan of division and submits for approval with the Development Assessment Commission. The Conveyancer prepares the Land Titles Office application and arranges consent from any Bank or other interest registered on the title and the Lands Tittles office.

However, contact Deed & Divide in the first instance as we can run through your requirements and  move forward together.

 

I’m selling my house privately, do I need a Conveyancer?

Yes, you need the services of a Conveyancer to prepare the contract of sale, a statutory disclosure statement (often referred to as ‘Form 1’) and the other documentation required by law for the sale to proceed.

Contact our office before you advertise your house for sale to ensure you fulfil your legal obligations.

 

Do Conveyancers have indemnity insurance?

Yes, as a member of the Australian Institute of Conveyancers we are required to be protected by professional indemnity insurance. This is to protect you, the consumer, in the unlikely event that something does go wrong.
