Conveyancing; the not-so-simple process

by Judica Swift on July 12, 2015 Comments Off on Conveyancing; the not-so-simple process

Did you know that every conveyancing transaction in Queensland is affected by 20 different State and Federal laws and countless past court cases?

Whilst alot of conveyances go smoothly, many things can go wrong or simply not quite as expected.

There are rights and obligations attached to every party involved and each have a role to play.  There are critical dates that, if missed, can mean you could be in breach of contract and be sued by the other party. Not to mention the emotional turmoil that results.

A conveyancing practitioner deals with every element of the conveyancing process.  They deal with these concerns daily and do so for each client. Conveyancing practitioners are also responsible for reviewing and advising on contract conditions, what happens when things go wrong and drafting and settling all the documents to transfer a property from one person to another. Our Conveyancing Practitioners who practice in this area are experts in dealing with the smooth and not-so-smooth transactions.  At Swift Legal, it is our job to keep it as simple as we can and to guide you through the process by advising you of those rights and obligations and to keep everything on track for you.

If you’re thinking about buying or selling a home, we always recommend you get advice before signing on the dotted line.  If you choose us to look after you with your conveyance, we are happy to review the contract and briefly take you through it before you sign without additional charge.  We can even help with the more detailed negotiation and by drafting special conditions in your contract to make sure the deal suits you and your situation.

If you’re not sure what to do, give us a call and we would be happy to help you.
