Are you buying yourself a house for the first time, or are considering long-term investment? Perhaps you are purchasing a property for your business venture or commercial service. If any of the above, it’s important you ensure you have essential knowledge on the process and concept of conveyancing.
Conveyancing is the transferring of ownership of property from one individual to another. A Conveyancer’s role in this process is to conduct title searches, acquire title deeds, drafting and exchanging relevant contracts, and essentially assist with handling the legal procedures involved with buying or selling a property. Conveyancers help to seal the deal where you are left feeling satisfied with the end result, and have a clear understanding of the conditions of your purchase or sale.

Our conveyancers at Conveyancing Sydney will work with you on a range of steps involved in the conveyancing process. Here’s a basic breakdown of the common set of steps involved in conveyancing:
Title searches are conducted as a protection method for both the buyer and seller of the property. This is to ensure that there are no associated legal obstacles involved with the property in question. After these obstacles have been evaluated is when it may be fine to proceed with the conveyancing process.
Many documents must be prepared, signed and stored during the conveyancing process. Some examples of such documents include requisition documents, mortgage and lease documents and transfer documents. The benefit of having a conveyancer is that they will know exactly when and where this paperwork is required.
Contracts can be a challenging block in the road when an individual attempts the conveyancing process by himself or herself. Our conveyancers have exceptional knowledge on what to look for in initial contracts and agreements for property purchase and selling. Our conveyancers assist you with initial contract signing that is made as an offer, which is given to the seller for their consideration.
Contracts detail the name of your property, the names of the buyer and seller, pricing, deposits, owed balances and any special conditions that can take place.
Cooling Off Period
After the contracts have been signed and exchanged, a cooling-off period is implemented, which lasts 5 days. During this time, the buyer has the flexibility to withdraw from the contract that they have committed to, without facing significant consequences. Our Conveyancers are available to answer queries regarding this timeframe and address concerns regarding your property contract.
Settlement can be considered the end of the conveyancing process. The property and title deed are released to the new owner. Payments are also processed. Our process involves our conveyancing solicitor officially storing the deeds on behalf of the owner and buyer. The deal is sealed and the conveyancing process ends. Your file is stored by us for up to 7 years.
