Buying or selling?
Buying or selling a residential property will be one of the most important financial transactions you make. To be confident in your decision and to make sure that the decision does not become a nightmare with unexpected costs or problems, seek the advice of Harmony Lawyers before you sign any contract.
What is Conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the term used to describe the process of transferring the ownership of property from seller to buyer. That is, transferring the title of a property from one party to another, from the time a decision is made to sell the property through to the registration of the change in ownership with the Titles Office.
Seems simple? Don’t be fooled!
What can go wrong? Many Things!
But to list a few:
Incorrect names on the contract or title;
- Incorrect property or boundaries;
- Pest or termite damage;
- Failure to obtain finance;
- Other side does not register documents;
- One party defaults; and
- Overdue rates, water, body corporate or land tax.
Our team can help you wade through the overwhelming amount of paperwork and searches to ensure your transaction runs smoothly and with little stress.
