Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve taken the time to compile a list of FAQ’s related to Melbourne Conveyancing:

Why do I need a conveyancer in Melbourne?

A conveyancer specialises in property law and is essential for navigating the complexities of buying, selling, or transferring property in Melbourne. They ensure all legal obligations are met, contracts are fair and correctly drafted, and any risks are identified and managed. Conveyancers also liaise with banks, real estate agents, and other parties to facilitate a smooth transaction.

What does the conveyancing process involve?

Conveyancing encompasses several key stages: initial legal advice, preparation or review of the contract of sale, conducting property searches, arranging for the payment of deposits, finalising the settlement documents, and coordinating the settlement process. The conveyancer also ensures that the property is correctly transferred to or from your name in all legal documents.

What transactions do Sargeants Bass Coast’s conveyancers handle?

Our conveyancing services cover legal processes for the purchase and sale of property. We offer:

  • Residential purchases and sales conveyancing.
  • Conveyancing for off-the-plan purchases.
  • Conveyancing for land sales and purchases.
  • Conveyancing for related party and spousal transfer.
  • Deceased estate conveyancing services.
  • Conveyancing for subdivisions
  • Commercial sale and acquisition conveyancing
  • Conveyancing for leases
What do your conveyancing services include?

Sargeants Bass Coast’s services include but certainly aren’t limited to:

  • Title searches.
  • Title transfers.
  • Examining Section 32 Statements to ensure there are no encumbrances and/or restrictions on the property which might affect its value.
  • Ensuring compliance with any contractual conditions, for example building and pest inspection or finance.
  • Ensuring the appropriate party has paid all applicable charges such as land tax, rates and water consumption charges.
  • Organising and facilitating payment of fees and charges.
  • Preparing legal documents for the transaction.

What is a Section 32 Statement and why is it important?

A Section 32 Statement basically details all the ‘fine print’ about the property you are purchasing, including a plan of the land, easements, services connected and any recent building approvals. There are many other important details in a Section 32 and our conveyancers will carefully read this document to ensure you are buying land or property that is worth its price, with minimal restrictions and no encumbrances. You can then decide if you want to proceed with purchasing the land or property. The Section 32 can also help you determine the value of your offer.

How long does conveyancing take?

The timeframe can vary significantly based on the specifics of the transaction and any issues that arise during the process. Generally, a straightforward conveyancing process can take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks from the date the contract is signed. However, complexities such as title issues or financing delays can extend this period.

Can conveyancers provide legal advice?

Yes, conveyancers offer legal advice related to your property transaction. This can include interpreting contract terms, advising on legal rights and obligations, and providing guidance on any potential legal issues that may affect the transaction. Their expertise ensures that you are fully informed and protected throughout the conveyancing process.

Are Sargeants’ conveyancers insured?

Sargeants Bass Coast holds professional indemnity insurance to provide our clients with the highest level of protection.

What are the costs of engaging conveyancers from Sargeants Bass Coast?

No two property transactions are the same and therefore costs for our conveyancing services vary. However, Sargeants Bass Coast’s fees are fixed and all inclusive. There are no hidden costs or surprises. Our fees include all disbursements, GST, title searches and attending settlement on your behalf. There are no hidden costs and our fees are not payable until settlement. Please contact our Cowes-based conveyancers if you have further questions or to discuss your next property transaction. You can also complete a conveyancing quote request via our website.

Are conveyancers lawyers?

Sargeants Bass Coast’s conveyancers are not lawyers but do have our own experienced solicitor who can provide further assistance and advice if necessary.

Do I need a conveyancer if I'm only buying or selling property in Melbourne?

Yes, whether you are buying or selling, a conveyancer’s expertise is invaluable. For buyers, they ensure the property you’re purchasing has no legal encumbrances. For sellers, they help prepare the contract of sale and ensure all legal obligations are met for a smooth transfer.
