Buying or selling a property can be the largest single transaction that many people embark upon. It has the potential to be complex and stressful. Not all transactions run smoothly, which is why it’s important to engage the services of experienced solicitors to guide you through the process.
When looking to purchase a property, you should firstly have the Contract for Sale reviewed by a lawyer. This is particularly important if the property is being sold by auction, so that any required contract amendments can be negotiated before you attend the auction.
When selling a property, your agent must have a complete Contract for Sale before advertising your property for sale. We’ll work with your real estate agent to prepare a contract as quickly as possible so that your marketing campaign can begin.
We offer a fixed fee for your conveyance, which we will advise at the start of the conveyancing process. Fees will also apply for any disbursements that are relevant to your conveyance (being fees charged by third parties) such as statutory searches and document lodgement fees. Based upon your individual circumstances, we’ll give you an up-front estimate for these additional costs.
Following settlement of your sale or purchase, we recommend that you review and update your will to reflect your changed circumstances.
