Why you should hire a Conveyancer when Selling or Buying a Property

Why use a Conveyancer?

Buying a house is one of the biggest financial investments you’ll ever make, and you want to ensure that your investment is protected.

What may seem like a small oversight, or simply missing one step in the process, can put either party at risk of serious consequences that may leave you out of pocket.

Reasons why engaging a Conveyancer is a wise choice

What may appear to be a simple Conveyancing transaction may be more complicated than it initially appears. Conveyancers deal with contracts and legal documents every day and specialise in negotiating the terms to ensure your interests are protected. Even a “standard” Contract of Sale can have serious implications if misunderstood or misinterpreted.

Common issues and concerns with property transactions

It is essential that you understand the possible restrictions that may apply when entering into a property transaction. Future developments, easements, restrictions regarding the use of the land, environmental issues hindering the property or non-complying structures are all major concerns that may not be discovered without proper investigation. Conveyancers are skilled at understanding these issues and will be able to provide you with the necessary advice so that you have a clear understanding of the property you are purchasing and any potential pitfalls.

Good Conveyancers know their way around the industry

It is not uncommon for various delays to occur during this process. For example, issues with incoming and outgoing lenders, disputes regarding the condition of the property, terms to be included in the contract, delays in receiving property related searches from third parties, issue with current tenants living in the property, and many more. This can be quite frustrating and disheartening however your Conveyancer will be able to guide you through the process in tackling these challenges. With their experience and knowledge, a Conveyancer handle the many administrative roadblocks that can occur along the way.
