Conveyancing is the process of transferring ownership of a legal title of property to the new owner, whether it is from a person or entity. Conveyancing is a complex series of tasks that requires knowledge and skill. It is a misconception that conveyancing is a simple process that takes little time.

A regular conveyancing transaction generally consists of three stages:

  • Pre-contract;
  • Pre-completion; and
  • Post-completion.

  • Examining the contract for sale;
  • Arranging property and pest inspections;
  • Exchanging the contract of sale;
  • Paying the initial deposit;
  • Arranging payment of stamp duties; and
  • Analysing if there are outstanding arrears.
