Why You Need a Property Lawyer for Conveyancing

Law Blog

Conveyancing is the process of transferring property from one owner to another. This is something you may find yourself doing when you want to split up property between children or as part of an end-of-life planning process. The initial reaction many people have to this process is to try and handle it on their own. However, there are several reasons you should use a property lawyer to help you with this important task.


One of the key tasks a property lawyer will handle for your conveyancing is legal agreements. These agreements deal directly with the real estate and the change from the property owner, which is you, to the new property owner. This paperwork must be filled out properly and include information that may be difficult for you to obtain on your own. For example, the agreements will have the exact property information including measurements and any items that may need appraising. 

Settlement Representation

There may be issues after your death that require property settlement. This could be due to someone suing your estate or to liens on the estate that may be present. If this is the case, your property lawyer will represent you in the settlements as they pertain to the conveyancing agreements the lawyer handles for you. This representation will be based on agreements you and your attorney agreed upon and signed. These agreements will come up in discussion during the legal paperwork related to the conveyancing. This is to ensure that any issue that comes up will be handled legally and to your stipulations. 

Mediator Between You and Businesses 

There are several steps to the conveyancing process that include discussions with banks and with zoning offices. If you handle this on your own, you will need to deal with each of these offices. You may not know who to call, who to speak to or what paperwork they need. Fortunately, your property lawyer can act as the mediator between you and these businesses to ensure that all fees, permits and legal agreements are handled properly and completely. 

If you are planning on conveyancing property, contact your property lawyer. They will schedule a consultation to discuss your needs and plans. They can then take your plans and begin drawing up the legal paperwork you will need to have filed for the conveyancing. They can also discuss filing paperwork and any questions you have regarding the process. Contact a property lawyer to learn more.

Dealing With Divorce

Hello, my name is Sandra. I live with my two children in Eastern Australia. I have recently come through a very difficult divorce. My ex-partner used to drink too much and he wasn't a very good husband or father. The final straw was when I discovered he was having an affair. I filed for divorce the same day. I knew that getting divorced would be difficult but I didn't realise just how difficult. My husband did all he could to make it hard for me and the kids. Thankfully, I found a fantastic family lawyer who helped me through the entire process. I won custody of the kids and my husband has been asked to pay child support. I decided to start this blog to help others who are going through a divorce.
