Buying a Property
Entering a contract to buy property creates legal obligations, so you need to know exactly what you are getting and understand your position before contracts are binding.
Whether you are buying for the first time, upsizing the family home, or adding to your investment portfolio, buying a property can be an exciting, yet overwhelming experience. In addition to the practical matters that come with moving house or changing locations, you will need to arrange finance, review the terms of the contract, and undertake the necessary due diligence to ensure that your proposed purchase meets your expectations. You also need to know there are no hidden surprises affecting the title of the property. Retaining expert advice is essential to help avoid pitfalls and to ensure the process runs as smoothly as possible.
We help numerous buyers with their conveyancing needs for all types of property – from reviewing and negotiating contract terms, explaining cooling-off rights, liaising with lenders and agents, to finalising settlement.
Unlike many legal matters, a conveyancing transaction typically takes place in a very short timeframe. Particularly in a competitive market, buyers often feel pressured to secure the property of their dreams but cannot risk missing the vital steps involved in carrying out due diligence and understanding exactly what their legal position is. This is where competent conveyancing professionals can be invaluable.
We have many years of experience in conveyancing across the ACT and NSW, and our team of property lawyers can guide you through the complex conveyancing process, explaining each step in plain English and protecting your rights throughout the entire transaction. We can assist with:
