Start by meeting with us to discuss your needs. We’ll provide an overview of our services and explain fees.
2. Review Contract & Section 32 Vendor's Statement
We review the Contract & Section 32 Vendor’s Statement, prepared by the seller. This document contains vital property information. Our team will recommend any necessary changes to safeguard your interests.
3. Working With Your Broker or Bank
We work with your broker or banker (or you can use our in-house broker if you would like a more seamless process) in order to obtain the relevant information from them regarding your loan and therefore how much money you need to have ready for your upcoming settlement.
4. Documentation To Sign & Verification Of Identity
We prepare a letter for you to read & understand the purchase process & also provide documents for you to sign including our costs disclosure, authority to act etc. Furthermore, we will take necessary steps to verify your identity as required by law to buy a property in Victoria.
5. Property Searches and Financial Preparations
We’ll perform essential property searches, like council, water, and land tax, and also check for owners corporation details if needed. These searches help us prepare the Statement of Adjustments, letting you know how much money you’ll need at settlement. We’ll also make sure the seller clears any owed rates.
6. Final Property Inspection
Before settlement, you’ll go to the property for a final look with the selling agent. This is your chance to spot any changes or issues that may have appeared since you signed the contract.
On the agreed date as per the contract, we conduct an electronic settlement with all parties (the seller’s conveyancer, their bank, your bank) in order to effect the transfer of the property into your name and simultaneously, pay the money owed to the seller.
8. Final Letter & Settlement Statement
We send you a final letter post-settlement showing the breakdown of all payments made for your accounting purposes.
Frequently Asked Questions About Property Conveyancing
We understand that our clients will have an array of questions for our solicitors.
Here are some answers to commonly asked questions about conveyancing services in Melbourne.
Conveyancing is the procedure of transferring a home’s ownership from one party to another. It involves all the legal and administrative work linked to the transfer. The conveyancing process is tedious and begins after an offer made for a property has been accepted. To seek guidance with the complicated procedure, it is best to hire a conveyancer who is a licensed and qualified professional offering advice on selling and purchasing a property and helping in preparing legal documentation for property transfer.
A conveyancer specialises in the conveyancing process of transferring ownership of property from one party to the other. As far as a lawyer is concerned, they offer property law and conveyancing services along with a broader range of legal services. Lawyers have specialised knowledge in the legal field and can be approached for various legal matters other than conveyancing.
The primary role of the conveyancer is the legal transfer of the property from seller to buyer. Our team at Orange Legal Group can help you make this process simpler and easier.
Whether you are buying a property or selling one, you will require a conveyancer to help you carry out the paperwork related to the real estate transfer. In most cases, the buyer and seller hire their conveyancers, who are likely to coordinate with each other on behalf of their clients. This means both parties pay their own conveyancer.
In most cases, conveyancing requires documents like a contract of sale, loan contract, certificate of land title, vendor’s statement, settlement statement, transfer documents, and identity verification. Some additional documents may be required depending on whether you purchase, sell, or transfer the property. Please speak to our experts to find out the exact documents you would need for conveyancing.
(a) Yes, a buyer does need a conveyancer to complete the purchase of the property. The buyer hires a conveyancer and acts as an intermediary with banks and lawyers.
(b) Some buyers may not require the services of a solicitor (lawyer), and someone in this situation might use their lawyer – but in all cases, you will need one or more of these professionals, so who you choose depends on your circumstances. Your needs determine which professional you employ, not vice versa.
It can be the same conveyancer however both parties will need to sign a conflict-of-interest form and if any dispute arises, both parties will need to seek alternate representation.
Conveyancing takes however long the settlement is (if purchasing). If you are selling, it takes 1–2 weeks to prepare the contract and then further work occurs once it is sold and working toward settlement. The potential complexities and difficulties involved with a private property transaction (and other property business) will vary depending on who you instruct and what they do or don’t know about how these transactions work.
