Sunshine Coast Conveyancing Lawyers FAQs
What is a conveyancer?
A conveyancing lawyer is a professional who deals with property matters such as buying, selling, or transferring property interests from one party to another. They offer advice by reviewing property contracts, provide guidance on the legal processes leading to settlement, and act as their client’s agent throughout the conveyancing process.
When it comes to making major financial decisions such as buying or selling your home or an investment property, it is important not to cut corners. Would you hop into a plane with a pilot that does not have a pilots license? We believe the same should be considered when engaging a Sunshine Coast conveyancer, you need to ensure that they are capable and qualified. There are several conveyancers in Queensland that are offering fixed priced conveyancing, however their files are not managed by qualified staff and the so-called fixed fees end up being anything but fixed.
Do not go with a cheap conveyancer to only find out that they will cost you significantly more in the long run both in terms of fees and legal risk. At MAP Lawyers we pride ourselves in offering a true all-inclusive fixed fee and our files are managed by qualified staff.
A professional Sunshine Coast conveyancing lawyer acts on your behalf and will help:
- Reviewing the contract
- Advising you on all relevant government and contractual obligations
- Monitoring all contracts and ensure obligations are met from all parties
- Preparing all legal documents with required certifications
- Calculating your rates and taxes
- Preparing you for settlement
- Attending settlements
Sunshine Coast Conveyancer vs lawyer – what’s the difference?
In a lot of Australian States, a conveyancer does not need to be a lawyer, however in Queensland, a deed transfer must be performed by a qualified lawyer or overseen by one. At MAP lawyers, our team of conveyancers are experts and are all qualified and specialise in property law.
Why should I hire a conveyancer?
When it comes to buying or selling your home, conveyancing may seem as straight forward as signing a contract and transferring a deed. However, aside from managing the transfer process between solicitors, a Sunshine Coast conveyancing lawyer can take a comprehensive look through a contract to make sure everything is correct and your interests are protected.
This includes making sure there is no claim or ‘encumbrance’ on the property that may impact its value. A conveyancer can then handle and prepare all legal documents on your behalf, calculate rates and taxes, and make adjustments to the final calculation if needed to ensure that the settlement of your property goes ahead smoothly without any potential costly mistake.
