What is conveyancing, and why is it important in a property transaction?
Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring the ownership of a property from one person to another. It involves a series of complex legal tasks that need to be correctly completed to ensure that the buyer becomes the legal owner of the property, free from any potential claims or disputes. These tasks include conducting necessary searches, preparing legal documents, handling the settlement process, and more.
Conveyancing is crucial in a property transaction because it ensures that your legal rights are protected and that all legal obligations are met. It gives you peace of mind knowing that the property you are buying or selling is legally yours to sell or becomes legally yours to own.
What does "settlement" mean?
The word “settlement” and “completion” mean the same thing in conveyancing – all funds have been received, the title of the property has been transfered and the matter is complete.
Should I opt for a "cooling off period"?
A cooling off period allows the purchaser time to obtain inspections, gain final loan approval and complete minor negotiations and they can end the contract at any time before the end of the cooling off period (although they will lose their 0.25% holding deposit). A seller is bound to the contract, and cannot end the contract during “the cool off”, but it does give their purchaser confidence to proceed inspections, etc.
However, every transaction is different so please contact us to discuss what suits you best in any circumstance.
What additional fees are there for selling a property?
Some of the fees to consider include:
- The Pexa Platform Fee. This is the fee now charged to “settle” (or complete) your matter electronically. NSW settlements are all moving to this platform and it will become compulsory to pay this fee.
- Additional legal fees. If your matter is not “standard” (for example, the other party delays, or you need to re-book your dates, etc), then an additional legal fee applies. We will always discuss this with you before it is charged.
- Trust Account Administration Fees. The use of our trust account incurs an administration fee.
All of these fees are broken down clearly and provided to you in our formal cost agreement. We recommend you read this document carefully.
What is stamp duty?
This is a tax you pay on the purchase of your property. First home buyers may be exempt or partially exempt, please call us to discuss what your tax obligations will be.
