Conveyancing can be a complex process that leaves many buyers and sellers feeling left in the dark. At Blue Ribbon Conveyancing we pride ourselves on being transparent with our clients and walking them through the process every step of the way.
What does a conveyancer do?
A conveyancer is an experienced professional with specialised knowledge of property dealings and property law who deals with the transfer of real estate. This includes the legal aspects such as drawing up contracts and dealing with payments, as well as completing surveys and title searches to ensure that everything is in order.
How can they help you?
In essence, a conveyancer is there to represent your interests as either the buyer or seller. They draw upon their knowledge and skills to ensure the sale or purchase of your property goes smoothly and conduct research to ensure all the legal requirements are met.
To make things easy, we’ve created a checklist for buyers and sellers outlining how working with Melbourne’s leading property conveyancing can help you:
