Frequently Asked Questions

How do Sydney conveyancing services work?

Your typical conveyancing transaction generally consists of three stages in NSW: pre-contract, pre-completion, and post-completion. Your conveyancer Sydney team will work with real estate agents, your mortgage broker, and you to everything necessary to ensure you’re prepared for critical dates during the process.

The conveyancing process involves the following actions:

  • Research property background and conduct title search
  • 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
  • Ensuring payment of land tax, water consumption charges etc.
  • Settle the property on your behalf.

Understanding the complicated legal jargon of property transactions can be challenging without the necessary knowledge. Of course, you could fill out the forms yourself if you wanted to; however, it’s not as easy as it sounds. And if you get it wrong, you run the risk of losing your property, as well as your 10% deposit.

Our conveyancers Sydney team take the guesswork out of buying, selling, and transferring the ownership of property. Our solicitors are skilled across all aspects of the conveyancing work and are experienced in everything from filling out the relevant paperwork necessary for finalisation, to negotiating contract terms, to finalising the deal. We’ve got all of your conveyancing needs covered.

Can I do my own conveyancing?

While it is possible to go through the conveyancing process on your own, it is generally not recommended for commercial and residential property in NSW. Having property solicitors and a licensed conveyancer working on your behalf for the property will ensure that all legal matters are adequately taken care of. If you’re looking for a way to make hiring conveyancers cheaper, you’re only going to run into problems if you attempt to have all documentation, contracts, terms, and legalities completed without professional assistance. In our opinion, the professional fees involved in working with a conveyancing firm outweigh the high risks of potentially getting something wrong while transferring, purchasing, or selling a property. Having a conveyancer on your side means that you can relax knowing that you will have your building report, pest report, strata report, final settlement, and contract reviewed by an expert that specialises in all conveyancing matters.

What is the difference between conveyancers and lawyers?

It’s easy to get confused by the difference between conveyancers and lawyers that operate in property law. While both occupations are qualified to act for you in a conveyancing transaction, what are the differences?

Conveyancers are licensed to operate in only one aspect of property law: conveyancing. As such, it is common that conveyancers possess much more specialised skills, given it’s the only thing they focus on. There’s also less chance of a conveyancer being out of the office or in the courts dealing with other issues. Conveyancers are only responsible for making sure you meet every legal obligation involved in your property transaction.

In contrast to lawyers, conveyancers cannot advise on areas of the law outside of conveyancing. If you need general legal advice, conveyancers will refer you to a qualified lawyer. Lawyers are trained to advise clients on their legal rights and obligations and represent them in Sydney courts across various issues.

Typically, it is best to work with an experienced conveyancer or a property solicitor that specialises in Sydney conveyancing. Here at Entry Conveyancing, we offer just that: Services backed by solicitors, ensuring the conveyancing process is seamless. The Entry Conveyancing Sydney team comprises licensed conveyancers and property solicitors that live and breathe conveyancing – we’re here to offer great advice, and exceptional services, and ultimately, add to our extensive list of happy clients.

If I sell my house without the intervention of a real estate agent, do I still need a conveyancer?

Yes. Property cannot be listed on the market or advertised before a proposed contract for sale has been prepared. Anyone who makes an enquiry or offers a property is entitled to ask for a proposed contract for sale. Failure to do so can result in fines.

To draw up a proposed contract for sale, you’ll need to enlist the services of a conveyancer. At Entry Conveyancing, we make the process of buying, selling, or transferring property as stress-free and straightforward as possible; you won’t have to worry at all about little details or legal jargon. We can deal with real estate agents and help you prepare a contract for sale, as well as delivering advice regarding the other aspects of the process, pre-completion, and post-completion measures.

When should I engage a conveyancer for property transactions?

As soon as you’ve decided to buy, sell, or transfer property, you should contact a New South Whales or Sydney conveyancing team immediately to set up a ‘pre-purchase contract review’ for all types of property. Like anything, the earlier you start, the easier the process will be for you. It’ll also make the conveyancers’ life easier, as they have much more time to work on and prepare any necessary legal documentation.

What is “gazumping”?

Gazumping occurs when a seller accepts a verbal offer on the property from one potential buyer but then reneges and accepts a higher offer from another party.

In Sydney, it is assumed that a purchaser understands that a sale has not taken place until all involved parties have fully executed the contract and that a purchaser who claims to have “been gazumped” has merely failed to understand the law.

To prevent yourself from being gazumped on a property, we recommend formalising a written contract agreement with your offer as soon as possible.

What do conveyancers search for when evaluating property?

Conveyancers conduct searches to assist the buyer in evaluating the property before the final purchase. These searches help identify any legal, property or ownership issues, such as land being on the contaminated land registry, if the building has the relevant approvals, if it has heritage lists or if there are any issues over the title. These searches are also done to make sure any debts in land tax or other rates are present or if they’ll be remediated before settlement.

If you have any special requirements for the property, let our Sydney conveyancing team know so that we can search the property with these issues in mind. Given our experience in the industry and conveyancing expertise, we’ll be able to advise you as to whether or not you should go through with the purchase.

However, to conduct specific searches, special conditions will have to be present in the contract to allow for different types of searches. If these conditions are not present, you may not be able to terminate the agreement based on findings from the investigation.

What happens at settlement?

Property settlement is the legal process necessary for the transfer of ownership from one party to another. Buyers, sellers, solicitors, and banks are all involved at settlement.

The length of the settlement process varies from state to state and property to property; however, as a rough guide, it typically takes anywhere from 30 to 90 days.

On settlement day, the purchasers’ bank will provide the funds needed to purchase the property to the buyers’ agent or solicitor, and in return, receive the Certificate of Title from the seller’s bank. Keys can then be handed over to the purchaser, provided all other agreements listed in the contracts have been met. From here, the buyer’s bank registers the relevant documentation and mortgage, notifying services such as electricity and water of the change.

Should I have the contract and Section 32 checked before I buy?

It is crucial to have your contract and Section 32 checked before you purchase any type of property.

At Entry Conveyancing, our pre-purchase legal advice allows you to navigate the many ups and downs of buying, selling, and transferring property with more confidence. Too many people fail to receive conveyancing or legal advice from a qualified professional before purchase, which can unfortunately lead to substantial financial issues later on in life.

If you’re in the early stages of purchasing, selling, or transferring property ownership, call us on 1800 518 187 for a free consultation and quote. Our fixed fee rates also remove the possibility of being charged. Whether you’re in the Eastern Suburbs, in Western Sydney, in Southern Sydney or the Northern Beaches of Sydney, we’re here to help you navigate the stresses of property ownership, and your Sydney conveyancing matter is our top priority.

What do I need to know about buying at an auction?

Real estate auctions are a risk for everybody involved – however, they can be highly rewarding, especially for the seller. If you know anything about property in Sydney, you know how common it is for a property to go to auction.

At an auction, a vendor will list their property for a reserve price. If the final ‘winning bid’ is below this reserve price, the house is not sold.

Auctions can go very well for sellers if multiple parties are interested in the property and bid against each other.

As a buyer, you should compare the listed reserve price to how much you or an agent believe the property to be worth. It is possible to get a good deal on a home that goes to auction.

What is stamp duty and do I need to pay it?

Stamp duty is a tax imposed by your state government upon the purchase of a property. Whilst both parties are liable, the terms of a standard sale contract place liability on the buyer. The amount of stamp duty payable is determined by the purchase price of the property.

Different states in Australia have differing rates of stamp duty. The payment deadline also varies from state to state. In Sydney, stamp duty is $43,087 plus $5.50 for every $100 over $1,064,000 as of 1 July 2021 – for further information, you can speak to our Sydney conveyancing team directly on 1800 518 187.
