Our privilege of being one of the leading conveyancing companies in South Australia also carries responsibilities.
In fact conveyancers are absolutely integral to facilitating any type of property transaction, yet most people are somewhat in the dark about their role.
Conveyancers are very much the quiet achievers in the property industry but are absolutely integral to facilitating every type of property transaction.
Many people, including some in the property industry, don’t necessarily understand the full extent of what we do. For example, many buyers and sellers aren’t aware that they can choose their own conveyancer in a property transaction.
A good conveyancer can hold a property transaction together – they are an important resource for the buyers and sellers, but also for real estate agents and mortgage brokers.
The role of a conveyancer
Conveyancers are responsible for the legal and statutory processes involved with the transfer of ownership of real estate from one person or entity to another. The preparation, execution, verification and lodgement of numerous legal documents are important elements of conveyancing.
Your conveyancer is very much a key part of your advisory team, in addition to your real estate agent and mortgage broker, and should be involved with the purchase or sale of your property from the outset.
A good conveyancer will assist you in many ways whether selling or buying – this includes reviewing the contract and offering independent advice, advising on the information provided in statutory disclosure statements, searching within government departments and local authorities for matters affecting the property, and preparing the legal documentation.
