I was attempting to get a contract reviewed at the last minute prior to an auction and to get advice on a rather weird contract situation. Jacqui was the only person who responded from a bunch of companies I contacted willing to help. Jacqui got in contact with me on a Saturday morning and ran through the contract, gave me great advice, and eased my major concern I was having around some wording of terms. Highly recommend and very personable.

Jacqui is the one you need to talk to as soon as you think you're going to purchase a house. She was beyond every expectation I have ever had of a legal representative; professional, personable, clear in her explanations and she took on our concerns as her own. I wouldn't think of having anyone else on my side if I ever purchase again. THANK YOU Jacqui, you made a big difference to us.

Jacqui helped us purchase our first home, and we couldn't have been happier. She was thorough when we excitedly gave her the contract to review, and advised us not to sign anything until the right amendments had been made. She was patient when our bank was delayed, and ensured we had an extremely smooth settlement. Use Jacqui, she's the best.

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?
