During any property sale, at Kingsley Lawson Lawyers, we believe that the role of a great conveyancing expert is two-fold.

In Australia, there is no legal requirement to hire a professional property conveyancer, whether you’re buying or selling. However, going down the route of attempting to carry out your own conveyancing is risky and therefore not recommended. Unless you happen to be an Australian property lawyer, it’s advisable to seek out the services of a specialist in property conveyancing.
Failure to understand and satisfy complicated Australian property laws can be very costly and may lead to future losses. Problems due to incompetent conveyancing which come to light after a transaction is completed can at best, amount to substantial sums. In the worst cases, mistakes can result in the loss of property. Most organisations recommend that buyers and sellers of property enlist the help of a professional conveyancer. Where your home, business, or financial future is concerned, it makes sense to make sure you have qualified people on your team.
The time to engage one of our qualified conveyancing lawyers arrives as soon as you develop an interest in buying or selling a property. Successful property transactions involve sound planning, so discuss your goals and strategy with a professional conveyancer before you make an offer on a property you intend to purchase. It’s also wise to consult with one of our professional property law specialists before you respond to any offers on a property you wish to sell.
As a potential property purchaser, even if you pay a deposit, the vendor isn’t obliged to sell to you. As a seller, similarly, nothing is set in stone until a contract has been drawn up and its terms agreed by all parties. That’s why it’s a great idea to have expert help from the outset. We’ll conduct relevant property title and planning searches, respond to queries and requests from the other party on your behalf and keep you informed about the process and legal aspects of the documentation. At Kingsley Lawson Lawyers, we look after your best interests from day one of a deal.
Once contracts have been drawn up and exchanged, there is much to do in order to ensure a smooth transaction. That’s where our expert assistance truly comes into its own, and our property conveyancing service offers so much more beyond drawing up documents and the contract. We’ll help you to make sure that all payments and financial arrangements – such as stamp duty and mortgage agreements – are in place ahead of time. We will deal with the time-consuming elements of the settlement, such as calculating your liability for rates, land tax, and any issues connected with common areas in strata purchases.
When the time arrives for settlement, our conveyancing specialist will represent your interests by attending on your behalf. We’ll meet with the representatives of the other party and take care of all the legal documentation required to complete the property transfer process.
Australian property conveyancing is a complicated business, and while settlement may be a relief, it’s not necessarily the end of the process. You still run the risk of incurring extra costs if you’re not familiar with the process, and our professional property conveyancer will make sure that all of the necessary transfer paperwork gets registered with the Land Titles Office in your state. Beyond the settlement, our specialist property law team will assist you with tasks such as notifying any relevant property manager of your ownership and tying up any loose ends.
