Frequently Asked Questions
If I sell my house without a real estate agent, do I still need a conveyancer?
Yes. Without an official and written contract for sale, you are unable to list or advertise your Sunbury property. This is because anyone who makes an inquiry or an offer on your property is entitled to ask for a proposed contract for sale. If you cannot provide this, you could be fined.
Entry Conveyancing will help you to prepare a contract for sale. Furthermore, we are happy to help you with any other pre-contract, pre-completion, or post-completion measures. Get started with a free consultation and quote by calling us today on 1800 518 187.
How long does conveyancing take?
Depending on if you are buying, selling, or transferring property and the parties involved, conveyancing times can differ.
Typically, the standard settlement period lasts anywhere between 4 – 6 weeks after the exchange of contracts.
The buyer and the seller can negotiate alternative settlement terms prior to confirming the contract, though. If both parties are willing to settle over a shorter period, then Entry Conveyancing will ensure everything is ready to make this happen.
How does conveyancing work?
The conveyancing process can be divided into three steps:
In this process, we:
- Research properties’ backgrounds and title certificates
- Prepare, clarify, and lodge legal documents
- Make sure any agreed-upon conditions within the contract are satisfied
- Calculate any adjustments arising from rates or taxes
- Ensure payment of land tax, water consumption charges etc.
- Manage the settlement of the property on your behalf
With our skillset and knowledge, we support you in understanding the complicated legal jargon of property transactions. Of course, you could fill out the forms yourself if you wanted to. However, if there are any errors, you run the risk of losing your property, as well as your deposit.
With a conveyancer on your side, there is no more guesswork in buying, selling, and transferring property, and our skills will help you through all aspects of the process.
