What can I expect from a conveyancing service?
A conveyancing service should provde the basic service of assisting you to purchase your house. This involves a lot of steps and can be very complicated depending on the time of property which you are buying, whether it is strata title or not and if you are buying it as a home or an investment property. You may have to consider any number of issues in relation to stamp duty, strata reports, builing reports, the reports which detail council rates and water rates and the payment of strata levies, land tax and you need to look at the environmental impact study related reports as well. One of the most important aspects of a conveyance is the advice and negotiation in relation to the contract for the sale of the land. When you look at a contract there can be some terms of it which are problematic for you or perhaps the bank that is financing you to purchase the property and these terms may need to be renegotiated before it is actually safe to sign the contract for you and not get trapped into something which you did not anticipate.
What are the advantages of a conveyancing solicitor?
A conveyancing solicitor has professional indemnity insurance which a conveyancer does not. They can actually provide formal legal advice in relation to the contract which cannot be provided by a conveyancer. This also means that if they make a very large mistake in relation to conveyancing, there is the possibility of redress through the professional indemnity insurer. Also, solicitors are university trained which means that they are often much better trained with a level of professionalism which is not available in the conveyancing market.
