What Is The Role Of A Conveyancer?

Conveyancing is a necessary process in both buying or selling property. A professional conveyancer or conveyancing solicitor helps with the settlement and title transfer process by ensuring that their client is meeting all legal obligations and that their client’s rights are protected during this transaction. Both buyers and sellers will need to use the services of a conveyancing professional, because both sides will have certain obligations that they must fulfill in a Contract of Sale.

Conveyancing is in a nutshell the process of transferring the ownership of property from one person to another. Licensed conveyancers and conveyancing solicitors are specialists in property law and are required to have specific qualifications. This ensures that they are aware of the legal responsibilities and obligations associated with the transfer of property.

The paperwork and processes involved in selling a property are extremely complex and it is strongly recommended that you engage the services of a properly qualified conveyancing solicitor or licensed conveyancer to undertake your conveyancing work following execution of a contract of sale.

A conveyancing solicitor will typically perform the following tasks:

  • A Conveyancing Solicitor will undertake a good portion of the legal leg work needed to help you make the right decisions and navigate this process successfully.
  • Submit all relevant documentation to the relevant government department.
  • Check the certificate of title
  • Search government departments and local authorities for anything that may affect the property such as encumbrances or caveats
  • Make necessary enquiries about zoning, titles and rates (council and water)
  • Adjust rates and taxes accordingly
  • Liaise with the purchaser’s or vendors conveyancer regarding settlement
  • Make sure that all special conditions in your contracts are met before settling.
  • Liaise with financial institutions regarding funds required to proceed to settlement
  • Arrange settlement
  • Prepare the settlement statement
  • Attend settlement on your behalf
