Frequently Asked Questions
How long does this process take?
The length of the conveyancing 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 on our end to make this happen.

What’s involved in the conveyancing process?
The conveyancing process usually involves the following steps:
- Preparing and lodging relevant legal documents
- Clarifying legal terms to clients
- Research the background of the property and title certificate.
- Calculate and inform you of any adjustments arising from rates or taxes.
- Ensuring on-time payment of land tax, water consumption charges and other relevant dues.
- Settle the property on your behalf
- Make sure any agreed-upon conditions within the contract are then satisfied.
The conveyancing process has just one end goal – transferring legal ownership from seller to buyer.
Conveyancing work begins when the contract for sale has been received. In most instances, this is when the seller’s agent has sent a signed copy of the contract to the purchasing party’s conveyancing agent. Once this has been signed by both parties, conveyancing work begins to transfer the ownership of the property to the other party.
