Frequently Asked Questions

The answer is yes, you can, however conveyancing can be technical and complex with many pitfalls for inexperienced persons. Before you undertake your own conveyancing you need to be 100% positive that you are able to see your sale or purchase through to settlement. You will need to take on the role of conveyancer, organising all searches, title transfers, lodgement of documents and liaising with the other parties’ conveyancing lawyer, negotiating changes or other conditions which may occur. As a professional conveyancing company we understand the legalities and requirements involved and recommend engaging an experienced conveyancing firm to ensure that no errors are made which can lead to delays, contract termination or unexpected costs.
A cooling off period is an allowable period of time, in business days after the initial signing of the contract for a buyer or seller to retract the contract.
