When embarking on the purchase or sale of a property in Victoria, understanding the conveyancing process is crucial. Conveyancing refers to the legal transfer of property from one person to another, and it’s a multistep process involving significant legal documentation and adherence to Victorian property law.

Here’s a streamlined overview of what to expect and consider during conveyancing in Victoria:

Initial Assessment

Before anything else, it’s important to get the lay of the land, quite literally. Reviewing the Contract of Sale and the mandatory Section 32 statement will provide a wealth of information. The Contract of Sale outlines the agreement’s specifics, while the Section 32 statement gives you details on mortgages, easements, zoning, and more. Engaging with a conveyancer or solicitor to review these documents is not just a good idea; it’s a critical step in safeguarding your interests.

Making The Move

Once you’re ready to proceed, you’ll make an offer. If accepted, you’ll pay a deposit, signalling your commitment to the transaction. Remember, the property remains on the market until both parties sign the contract, so time can be of the essence. During this phase, a conveyancer is invaluable in ensuring that the terms and conditions of the contract reflect your understanding and protect your rights.

The Cooling Off Period

After signing the contract, buyers usually have a ‘cooling-off’ period, allowing them to reassess and potentially withdraw from the purchase within a specified timeframe. Note that this doesn’t apply to all sales, such as those at auction, or those where the cooling off period has purposely been waived.

Preparing For Settlement

Leading up to settlement, your conveyancer will handle many technicalities: from arranging the transfer document and ensuring stamp duty is paid to making any final adjustments on taxes and rates. This step also involves a final search to guarantee no last-minute legal hitches.


The settlement marks the completion of the conveyancing process, but it’s not the end of the road. Your conveyancer will assist with the registration of the transfer, marking the legal transfer of property into your/the other party’s name.

Remember, each property transaction is unique, and while this guide gives a broad outline, your conveyancer will provide detailed advice tailored to your specific circumstances. This personalized guidance is key to navigating the complexities of property law in Victoria and ensuring a seamless transition to your new property.
