Conveyancing is the process by which ownership of a property is transferred from a seller to a buyer. 

We provide conveyancing services for matters ranging from residential properties to business and commercial  properties. Documents relating to conveyancing must contain correct and complete information. Our lawyers can  assist you in the preparation of or review of all the documentation required for a property sale or purchase.  

We offer advice and can assist you with matters such as: 
  • First Home Owner Grant (FHOG) for new builds
  • Stamp Duty related matters
  • Principal Place of Residence (PPR) concession
The Section 32 statement contains important information about the title of the property, including:
  • Mortgages
  • Covenants
  • Easements
  • Zoning
  • outgoings (for example, rates)
  • Declaration if located in a bushfire-prone area.
As a Section 32 statement is a legal document, it is imperative that it is factually accurate and complete. A buyer may be able to withdraw from the sale or take legal action against you if it contains incorrect or insufficient information. The contract of sale contains:
  • Details of the property
  • Your name and the buyer’s name(s)
  • Name of your estate agent (if anyone)
  • Details of legal practitioners or conveyances that you and the buyer have engaged.
  • Purchase price.
  • The deposit paid.
  • The balance owing at settlement.
  • Any special circumstances, such as a ‘subject to finance’ section.
In the contract of sale, it must be stated whether the purchase price includes or excludes the goods and services tax (GST) and if it is included, how the amount is calculated.
