Residential Conveyancing

The purchase or sale of a house, home, unit or vacant land is likely to be one of the most important financial transactions you will make. The process of moving ownership of real estate from one person's name to another is called conveyancing. Although the conveyancing process can appear relatively straight forward, it is frequently fraught with complications and differences which arise often enough to justify engaging professionals. Whether you are buying or selling, it is an important investment decision and the terms and conditions attached to that decision have to be right the first time.

If you are about to involve yourself in conveyancing, contact us first and you will find yourself talking to a real person and not someone's voice mail.

 At Delaney & Delaney Solicitors, our residential conveyancing lawyers conduct the following steps:

  1. Checking the contract, noting all of the important terms and conditions, particularly important dates such as Finance Approval Date or Building/Pest Inspection Date and Settlement dates and confirming with you that you fully understand and are happy with those conditions;

  2. Liaising with the Real Estate Agent involved confirming deposit amount;

  3. Performing searches in for the property being purchased. These include Title Search, Plan, Rates, Land Tax and can involve numerous other Government Authorities including Main Roads, Contaminated Land Registry, Queensland Electricity Commission, Energex, Powerlink, Queensland Railways, the Supreme Court for any proceedings against the seller, bankruptcy listings and  ASIC (to make searches about a company and any charges thereof);

  4. Liaising with financiers in order to have the right funds available at settlement;

  5. Preparation and signing of Transfer documents and financial documents;

  6. Attending at settlement to ensure that a proper transfer between owners is exchanged for the appropriate balance of money due.

Commercial Conveyancing costs involve many of the same steps, but often on a much larger scale and involve additional issues such as ensuring compliance with additional legislation: for example, an asbestos audit.

 When you make a call to our office in relation to conveyancing,  please ask for Mrs Fiona Kennedy our principal, Mr Bill Delaney our consultant, Ms Anna Delaney and Ms Julia Marler our Solictors or Mrs Teresa Gageler our conveyancing manager.
