What is conveyancing?

When you buy, sell or transfer a property there are a number of legal procedures that are required to be followed. This legal process is called conveyancing. 

I am buying or selling a property. Do I need a conveyancer?

Buying or selling a property can be expensive, so it may be tempting to save some money by doing your own conveyancing. However, conveyancing is not always a straightforward legal process and doing your own conveyancing can often be complicated and time consuming. Also, when you do your own conveyancing you are effectively taking responsibility, without the benefit of insurance, for any mistakes you might make.

By using East-West Conveyancing you will receive a professional conveyancing service, save your own time and avoid taking on the personal risk associated with doing your own conveyancing work.

How long does a conveyance take?

This depends on the conditions of each Contract. Most contracts require settlement to take place 6 weeks from exchange but this can vary. 

At what stage can I contact you about acting as my conveyancer?

If you are considering selling a property, we can discuss this with you and then prepare the Contract for Sale. If you have found a property you would like to purchase, you can contact us to review the Contract for you before signing it.
