Choosing a Conveyancer | Signs of Good Conveyancing

Signs of a Good Conveyancing Solicitor

When you are choosing comprehensive Brisbane conveyancing services to help you purchase or sell a property, you want to make sure that they’re the right person for the job. When you’re buying or selling a property, there is a lot of information to take in and a lot of paperwork to be done for the smooth transferal of the title.

Choosing the right conveyancing service is going to make the whole process a whole lot easier.

And having the wrong conveyancer on hand is going to make what is potentially a complicated situation even messier!

While the most important thing for you now might be to find the perfect property and to engage in contractual negotiations, know that having the right conveyancer on hand is going to make the whole process a lot smoother.

So to help you out, here are some of the key characteristics of a quality conveyancing service that we think will make a big difference to your next property transaction.


 

You Want a Property Law Expert

When you are looking for a conveyancing solicitor, you need to hire someone with a deep understanding of property law who knows the different rules and regulations of various parts of Australia.

Since the laws do differ from state to state, it helps to speak to your conveyancer first and find out if they can handle your upcoming sale.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking to buy or to sell; to subdivide or to do something else related to your property; you need a conveyancer who can manage the transaction.

After all, you don’t want any further complications added to what is already a very in-depth process.

 

Specialised Knowledge

When you are hiring a conveyancer, it’s ideal to know as much as you can about their background and their key areas of focus.

You need to know that conveyancers are not necessarily lawyers – but make sure you find out whether yours is, and if they’re not, what kind of relevant experience they have had.

Unless you have an in-depth understanding of the terminology and procedures involved in the transaction, you will struggle.

You need to understand whether the conveyancer you’re working with has handled sales or transactions like yours in the past, and how well equipped they are to manage the potential hassles that may come up.

Your conveyancer is going to be:

Tick.

Buying and selling property is a major transaction, and if you consider the money saved versus what could potentially go wrong, it makes a lot of sense to hire a professional.

  • Doing searches for the certificate of title
  • Performing government searches
  • Providing advice on the contract
  • Preparing and certifying legal documents
  • Stamping documents
  • Calculating rates and tax
  • Preparing statement settlements
  • Working with your mortgage provider
  • Attending settlement on your behalf
  • You need to know that they have done plenty of this sort of work before so that your transaction is smooth and hassle-free.

     

    Exceptional Communication

    You need to enlist the services of a conveyancer who is going to keep you informed from start to finish.

    The last thing you want is to be left in the dark during a period of potential stress!

    You need to have someone who you consider part of your team – because they’re going to be providing you with information and documents as and when you need them.

    Make sure you ask how communication is handled, and what to expect. You need to know how best to communicate with them – for example, if you can call them directly, or if email is preferred. Knowing this at the start will prevent headaches down the line.

     

    Plain-Speaking

    If your conveyancer says that property law is too technical to explain to you – then don’t use them for your transaction!

    After all, it’s your property and money at stake, and you want to be well-informed throughout.

    Your conveyancer’s role is that of a middleman, acting as the translator for complex jargon and making it easy for you to understand.

    A professional conveyancer is going to have the right kind of analogies already thought out to explain things to you.


     

    Reliability

    The final thing that we consider to be highly important at Conveyancing Home is to have a conveyancer who does what they say they are going to do.

    If they say they’ll have a document or contract available for you on a date or at a time, then they need to!

    You want a conveyancer on hand who is going to respect the agreement that you are entering and who respects the fact that they have been hired by you to do this transaction.
