CONVEYANCING SERVICES

Buying or selling property may be the biggest transaction you ever undertake... do it right with TasConveyancing

To assist in your sale we:

  • prepare the contract of sale (if required);
  • review and provide advice prior to you signing your sale contract to ensure you are fully informed and covered legally – we recommend that even if a contract has been prepared for you by a Real Estate Agent or other party that you seek advice as to whether it meets your specific needs before signing;
  • monitor conditions of the contract to ensure purchasers meet their obligations within the time allowed for doing so and handle extension requests if they arise;
  • undertake the required searches on the property;
  • prepare a Discharge of Mortgage Authority and provide it to your bank. We also liaise with your bank on other matters to ensure that they can meet the settlement date;
  • arrange execution of the Transfer document and assist you in answering Requisitions of Title from the purchaser;
  • draft documentation to prepare for settlement;
  • book, manage and attend your property settlement, ensuring that the settlement date coincides if you are also purchasing a property;
  • pay out any outstanding rates, land tax and body corporate amounts due from settlement moneys;
  • complete required tasks for the Australian Tax Office regarding payment of GST if required in your transaction; and
  • liaise with TasWater regarding change of ownership post settlement.

 

To assist in your purchase we:

  • draft or review contracts and advise you prior to signing on any legal implications;
  • guide you to meet and monitor your conditions of the contract within the specified timeframes for doing so and, when required, seek extensions of contract clauses;
  • undertake the required legal searches to ensure your new property is fit for transfer without hidden surprises after settlement, review search results and provide you with a copy;
  • prepare transfer documentation and lodge a Priority Notice over the title to protect your interest in the property;
  • liaise with your bank to co-ordinate the provision of finance if applicable;
  • draft appropriate documentation regarding the State Revenue Office and Australian Tax Office (where applicable);
  • book, manage and attend settlement, ensuring that the settlement date coincides if you are also selling a property;
  • attend to stamping of the transfer and title registration (where no bank is involved); and
  • liaise with TasWater regarding change of ownership post settlement.
