What Is Conveyancing ?
Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring the title and ownership of a property from one person to another. Conveyancing may also include the granting of an encumbrance such as a mortgage. The conveyancing process consists of two parts. These parts are the exchange of contracts and the settlement, including the settlement period and the settlement date.
The settlement period refers to the time elapsed between the exchange of contract and the delivery of the key to the new owner. This period is to allow time to finalise any paperwork, finalise finance, move out of the property, clean, undertake any required repairs. Property settlement day refers to the day the new owner takes possession of the property, after having paid the vendor in full.
As noted above, conveyancing is a legal process and should, therefore, be handled by a professional conveyancer or solicitor. This ensures the protection of the rights of all parties and compliance with all legal obligations. The three basic steps in conveyancing are research, negotiation and documentation. We verify the sales contract and make requests to local councils for updated surveys, building and construction certificates. We request from relevant government departments for any other essential documents. Finally, we attend to the final settlement. When you sign a contract of sale to purchase a house, that's only the very beginning of the legal process.
There are many checks that need to be carried out before a sale is finalised. When a property sale is finalised, this is known as a settlement. When you hand over your hard-earned monies to a conveyancer or solicitor to handle the transaction, they do put it to good use. They are handling a broad range of matters to ensure your rights are protected and that the sale goes smoothly. In broader terms, a solicitor is responsible for making sure you meet all the legal obligations involved in your property transaction. The scope of work that a lawyer covers will vary depending on the complexity of the property transaction. Click below for more information?
