How To Choose a Conveyancer

When you’re looking to buy or sell a property, it might be an overwhelming experience if you’ve never gone through it before. At Solicitors Camp Hill, we’re committed to helping you through the entire process. Read on to see our best tips on how to choose a conveyancer that’s right for you!

What is a conveyancer?

A conveyancer is a lawyer that specialises in the specific legal aspects of the purchasing and selling of real estate and property. The act of transferring a legal title of property from one person to another is called conveyancing.

Know Your Requirements

When you’re looking to make a purchase or sell your property, make sure to know as much as you possibly can about what you want to accomplish with the property and the transfer of the title. You don’t need to know everything, as a conveyancer will be able to help you with filling in the gaps, but you can get a good start by laying out your requirements upfront.

Ask Questions

As you meet different conveyancers, it helps to have a set of questions that you can ask them to learn more about them, their firm, their practices and whether or not they will be a good fit for what you want to accomplish. Consider a few of these questions to get started:

  • Are you a part of the Australian Institute of Conveyancers?
  • How can I be kept up to date with the process?
  • How long will it take for the settlement to be completed?
  • How much are the fees and what services are provided as part of those fees?
  • How much will I need to pay in government fees?
  • What additional services are there and how much do they cost?

Ask For Recommendations

You can ask your agent to recommend a conveyancer as they may have seen more positive results with some conveyancers over others. However, always keep in mind that the choice to select a conveyancer is always up to you. The agent cannot make the decision for you, which means you have the flexibility to choose who you would like to work with.

Find a Conveyancer Before You Intend To Buy or Sell Property

Although you might not think about enlisting the aid of a conveyancer before you find a home to buy or decide to sell, it’s important to get started as soon as you’ve made the decision to do so. Taking on a conveyancer early on will mean that you can get the preliminary paperwork out of the way instead of needing to hustle at the last minute and risk losing the sale.
