Frequently Asked Questions
About Property Conveyancing
Q: How Long Does Conveyancing Take?
Many first-time homebuyers are surprised how long the process of purchasing a property can actually take. The expected time frame can typically take between 8 and 12 weeks. This from first instructing your conveyancer to actually moving into your new home. Keep in mind time frames will vary.
If the conveyancer’s searches uncover unexpected information, further work may be needed.
Q: What Do Conveyancing Fees Include?
Conveyancing is the legal process that ensures payments are sent and received correctly and the appropriate paperwork is in order with the property.
There’s a great deal of work involved with conveyancing. For example: a large part of the work involves a number of title searches, scrutinizing contracts, working closely with your buyer/seller’s conveyancers or solicitors, and communicating with estate agents.
Here is a detailed list of what a conveyancer does for you.
Q: What Happens When I Ask For A Quote?
After welcoming you, we like to ask a few questions to target exactly which services you require. For example, key questions asked will cover aspects such as: What type of property conveyancing, domestic, rural, farming, industrial, commercial do you need? What are the critical dates, or time frames? Do you need a contract? Are you happy with your contract? Have you experienced the conveyancing process previously? and so on.
We use this information to prepare the best quote possible for your unique situation. Every situation is different, so we listen carefully.
Q: Will The Same Person Take Care Of Me ?
We take your confidence and trust in us seriously. Buying and selling any type of property is one of the most important things in life and we ensure professional and friendly service to warrant a smooth transaction.
You’ll have our professional team working for you including our conveyancing lawyer who’ll be your main contact person throughout. You can rest assured you’re being taken care of.
Q: What And Why Are Searches Important?
Searches are Legal Certificates disclosing all the necessary property legalities you need for the property transaction to go ahead. These cover rates and financial amounts owed. Searches give your professional conveyancer full scope to do their detective work to safely manage any risks to you.
Limited searches means possible issues which may not be discovered. We may recommend optional searches. For example, a Building Approval Search will reveal any Permit issued within the last 10 years – but does not of course disclose any works which may have been carried out without a Building Permit. You don’t want a letter from the Council ordering you to tear it down. These searches are optional as they are an extra cost.
Q: We See Others Offering Cheaper Fees
Some conveyancing lawyers may say their conveyancing fees are less expensive. The risk to you means they may not obtain full detailed information affecting the property. The danger is you may not be protected against the risks associated with purchasing a Property.
At South East Conveyancing we guarantee never to compromise on search quality for your protection. Our Searches maximise your valuable protection.
Remember this will most likely be the largest financial purchase you’ll make in your life. We strongly recommend investing in protection to give you peace of mind and confidence.
Things to Think About When Choosing A Licensed Conveyancer To Represent You
We’ve all heard the horror stories of unprofessional representatives not doing their conveyancing jobs properly. Deciding on a Licensed Conveyancer who will competently help you every step of the way of your sale or purchase is hard. As a first time property buyer or seller, you don’t know what to expect from the maze of legal red tape! This is what we often hear from clients: How do we know which is the best offer/s from either conveyancers or solicitors? How do we know our property transaction will be done correctly? Will fixed price conveyancing cover everything? Do you offer online conveyancing?
