Frequently Asked Questions
Are your conveyancers in Northcote solicitors?
Yes – at Entry Conveyancing, we operate with solicitors who specialise in property law and conveyancing. Our lawyers are experienced in dealing with all matters regarding property legalities and can provide expert assistance across all types of properties in Northcote.
How long does conveyancing take?
As the top conveyancer Northcote has to offer, the process will be dependent on the parties involved. As a general guide, Entry Conveyancing speculates the standard settlement period lasting anywhere between 4 – 6 weeks following the exchange of contracts. However, alternative settlement terms can be negotiated between the buyer and the seller prior to confirming the contract. If both parties are willing to settle over a shorter period, then Entry Conveyancing will ensure everything is ready to make this happen.
Can’t I do my own conveyancing?
From the outside, conveyancing is the simple transfer of land title from a seller to a buyer. So, why shouldn’t you be able to do it yourself? Simply put, you can do your own conveyancing if you so wish; it is not a legal requirement to have a conveyancer. However, conveyancing is an arduous process, and one false move along the way can see you face hefty fines or even lose your deposit on your Northcote property.
It is always worth paying a solicitor or licensed conveyancer to do the conveyancing on your behalf. The cost you save by doing your own is marginal compared to other fees you have to pay, plus you run the risk of missing vital steps in the process, and you are not insured in case something goes wrong.
When should I engage the services of a conveyancer in Northcote?
If you’re buying a property in Northcote, it’s important to discuss your property purchase with a conveyancer as soon as possible – preferably before signing the contract of sale. The next step is to discuss your intention to purchase with your mortgage broker or lender. From there, your conveyancer can negotiate the contract of sale before you sign – if you have already signed, we may be able to negotiate within the cooling-off period.
If you’re selling your Northcote property, it’s essential to get your contract ready as soon as possible with the help of a conveyancer. As soon as you decide to sell, you should engage the services of an Entry Conveyancer Northcote to prepare your contract and have our team assist your real estate agent in marketing and selling the property. From the moment it goes up for sale to the closing of the deal, we’ll be with you every step of the way.
