What is Conveyancing? A Simplified Guide for Homebuyers

If you are considering buying a property, selling, or transferring ownership of a property you will need conveyancing services.

Why it is essential?

Australians buy many types of property every day without requiring legal assistance, from groceries to clothing. As you buy more regulated items such as SIM cards, cars, motorhomes you start to encounter mandatory forms and government registration.

When it comes to ‘real’ property (often referred to as ‘real estate’) such as land, houses, units, and apartments there is a significant amount of legal paperwork and laws to comply with both at the state and federal level.

A purchaser that fails to meet their legal obligations during a conveyancing transaction can face serious financial consequences. You will need the services of an experienced conveyancer or property lawyer to complete the change of ownership on your behalf.
