What is Property Conveyancing?
Property conveyancing refers to the process of legally transferring property from one owner to another. This administrative process has to be undertaken every time a property sale occurs – whether it’s a residential or commercial property – and a good conveyancing solicitor will explain every step of the process to you in a way that clearly shows you what your obligations, rights and interests are.
What is Conveyancing for Sellers?
If you’re selling a property, it’s your conveyancing solicitor’s job to ensure that you hold a valid title over the property and land that can be passed onto the buyer without any problems after they have paid.
What Sellers Need to Do
- Notifying your bank of sale.
- If you have a mortgage, signing the required Discharge Authority/Authority to Release Mortgage form. If you don’t have a mortgage, you simply need to provide the Title Deed to your solicitor at Conveyancing Home QLD.
- Instructing your bank as to which account the settlement funds should be placed in.
What is Conveyancing for Buyers?
If you’re buying a property, your conveyancing solicitor’s role is mainly to ensure that your pre-settlement rights are protected and that you’re getting a clear and unencumbered title when settlement is finalised.
What Buyers Need to DoThere are some tasks conveyancing solicitors will not be able to do for buyers – although they can tell you exactly what you need to do and advise you when to do it. These tasks include:
- Applying for finance approval, notifying your solicitor of the outcome of your application and returning the loan documents to your bank within the appropriate timeframe.
- Arranging for building and pest inspections of the purchased property no later than the day after the contract is signed and notifying your conveyancing solicitor of the results of these inspections.
- Purchasing insurance on the property you’ve bought the day after you sign your contract.
- Fulfilling any other special conditions of the contract.
What Do Conveyancing Solicitors Do?
Property conveyancing is not a straightforward process, and without a thorough understanding of where to go to find the relevant information, how to lodge documents, and the deadlines that must be met, it can quickly become a very time-consuming and therefore costly service.
That’s why you need solicitors who knows the ins and outs of every task involved, including:
- Helping you obtain and understand your Contract of Sale, and providing advice regarding any special conditions before you sign. Conveyancing solicitors ensure that you are protected during the purchase or sale transaction and that all contract conditions are met.
- Advising you as to any concessions you could be eligible for (first home concession, stamp duty concessions).
- Providing you with a checklist of steps that you’ll need to complete and the key dates they need to be completed by. These steps can include applying for finance, lodging your Discharge Request with your releasing mortgagee and more.
- Undertaking all of the necessary searches and providing you with copies of the searches and a report explaining their findings. Searches that need to be conducted include Certificate of Title searches, government department and local authority searches.
- Attending to the removal of any encumbrances that may be on the title (expired leases, caveats, writs and statutory charges).
- Ensuring the correct notice periods are adhered to where tenanted properties must be vacated prior to settlement.
- Reviewing your building and pest inspection reports and advising you as to any rectifications or price adjustments you’re entitled to seek.
- Preparing, certifying and lodging legal documents such as the Transfer of Land within the required time frame.
- Assisting you with signing bank documents.
- Helping you prepare documents required for lodgement with the Office of State Revenue and calculating any rates and taxes that are applicable.
- Liaising with mortgagors and financiers to confirm the amount being borrowed will be ready for settlement.
- Preparing settlement statements, attending settlement on your behalf and advising you once settlement is completed.
- Advising you of any post-settlement tasks that may need to be taken care of (notifying body corporates of ownership changes, paying overdue rates, water, body corporate or land tax liabilities).
When you’re conducting a commercial property transaction – whether it involves the purchase or lease of a warehouse, office or retail space, or even a piece of vacant land – it’s crucial that you hire solicitors with a thorough understanding of commercial conveyancing law.
Commercial conveyancing involves larger, higher-risk transactions that are underpinned by legal processes that are more complex than those relating to residential house conveyancing.

- Tailored to our client’s specific needs
- Designed to reduce risk
- Carried out in a way that ensures your business has minimal downtime and there aren’t any costly delays
