Conveyancing is the legal process whereby the ownership of property is transferred from one person or entity to another. The process involves the preparation, execution and lodgement of a number of lengthy legal documents. A quality conveyancer/solicitor can properly advise you in relation to your obligations and rights in relation to these documents, while assisting you to comply with your obligations and ensuring that your rights are not being denied or diminished. A good Solicitor/Conveyancer will always take the time to properly explain to you the effect of each of these documents before you sign them.

Conveyancing also includes investigating the title of the property in order to ensure that it is not adversely affected by certain matters, such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, outstanding rates or any orders for work to be done which have not been complied with. Your conveyancer will consult with you and discuss which searches and inquiries are necessary or desirable in each case.
