Conveyancing – the buying, selling and transferring of property is generally undertaken by a conveyancer or solicitor.
Use this checklist to ensure you have all the necessary and helpful information required about the conveyancing of your property:
✓What services do they provide?
✓Do they offer a review of contracts for properties you are interested in purchasing, or is this an additional cost
✓What is their fee and how do they calculate it – flat fee, sliding scale or time spent.
✓Are disbursements and incidental costs additional or included in the quoted fee.
✓Confirm whether the title of the property influences the cost – Company or Stratum titles are more complex than Strata title, and may cost more for conveyancing services.
✓Do they have the required professional or educational requirements?
✓Do they hold professional indemnity insurance?
✓Do they handle all correspondence and enquiries from the other party (purchaser or vendor)?
I can strongly recommend the following conveyancers for their experience and personal service. You may wish to call them to discuss their services & fees.
