Selling a home

To help ensure everything is legal and above board, it’s recommended you enlist in the help of a conveyancing lawyer when selling your house.

Given that there are a lot of documents and back and forth with representatives to consider, a conveyancing lawyer can save you the trouble by handling all communication and legal documents for you.

Conveyancing Lawyer FAQs

What is a conveyancer?

A conveyancing lawyer is a professional who deals in property transfers. As an expert in real estate law, a conveyancing solicitor can offer you guidance and advice, help you with documentation, and step you through the settlement process. In Queensland, a conveyancing solicitor is needed when you accept an offer on a house.

Generally, a conveyancing lawyer will handle the following:

  • Calculate contract key term dates
  • Arrange title searches
  • Prepare and certify documents
  • Calculate rates, taxes and conduct land surveys
  • Advise you on your legal obligations
  • Liaise with the other side’s solicitor
  • Prepare settlement documents and attend settlement on your behalf

It’s advised you use a conveyancing lawyer if you plan on buying or selling a property or subdividing land.

Conveyancing may seem as simple as transferring a name on a title certificate but, the process is a little more complicated than that. Property solicitors act on your behalf to organise a deed title transfer and to check through the mortgage documents to ensure there’s no claim ‘encumbrance’ on the property. An encumbrance can restrict a person’s ability to transfer a deed or lessen a property’s value, so it’s important to find out before the sale goes through. A conveyancer will also prepare all legal documents, calculate taxes and conduct land surveys.

Conveyancer versus lawyer – what’s the difference?

Typically, a conveyancing solicitor is licenced to handle deed transfers but is not a lawyer. In Queensland and the ACT, deed transfers must be conducted by lawyers as conveyancers cannot operate on their own. At MAP lawyers, our team are qualified lawyers who specialise in property conveyancing.
