What is Conveyancing?

The essential legal nuts and bolts of any property transaction.

It may surprise you to hear that, after decades of specialising in conveyancing, the most common question our experts get asked at the start is: “So, what exactly is conveyancing?”. Which shows us there are plenty of people out there who don’t quite understand where we fit into a property transaction, so the first thing we like to do is explain exactly how we help you.

Put simply, conveyancing is the process of legally transferring property or land ownership from one party to another, ensuring all the legal nuts and bolts are safely in place and compliant with the law.

A good conveyancer is a true real estate professional who specialises in the legal transfer and dealings of real property. They have the capability of handling multiple functions, including:

  • Residential property transfers
  • Commercial developments and commercial property transactions
  • Land divisions
  • Community title divisions
  • Land acquisitions
  • Settlement of business sale transactions
  • Leases
  • Easements
  • Encumbrances
  • Land tax advice
  • Trust distributions
  • Powers of attorney
  • Caveats
  • Matrimonial transfers
  • Family property transfers
  • Private sales
  • Private mortgages
