Conveyancing is the act of transferring a property title from one person or entity to another. In Queensland, conveyancing is affected by more than twenty different pieces of State and Federal legislation, Contract conditions, extensive case law and practice guidelines. It is a complex process to say the least.
Whilst all conveyancers in Queensland are supervised by a legal practitioner, there are no formal training or education requirements for conveyancers. Engaging an inexperienced conveyancer can result in your conveyancing experience being far more stressful than it needs to be. An experienced conveyancer should be able to offer:
Peace of mind
Assuming you’ve done your research and settle on an experienced, well regarded conveyancer, they should provide you with peace of mind. Your conveyancer should have your best interests in mind and offer appropriate due diligence so
as you know exactly what you’re about to commit to.
Conveyancers specialise in property transfers, so they really know their stuff. They should be highly knowledgeable in their field and be able to ‘hold your hand’ throughout the entire process, should you need it.
Communication and reliable delivery
Your conveyancer should be able to deliver on dates that they set out or if they are unable to, communicate this with you. You want a conveyancer who is experienced and organised enough that they have a sound understanding of the timeline of the process.
