Buying a Property

At Key Conveyancing Ltd we are property conveyancers specializing in residential property transactions.  Prior to signing a purchase contract,  we recommend that you contact us so that we can look over the agreement and ensure that the conditions are suitable to your requirements.

As our fees are fixed, we do not charge you for any time spent looking over your agreement and the precontractual advice that we provide.

We manage all aspects of the buying process, which usually includes;

♦ Pre-contractual information and advice

♦ Searching and checking title, and providing you with full information and explanations of any matters that affect the property’s title

♦ Follow up of conditions in the Agreement for Sale and Purchase

♦ Preparing necessary documentation for you to sign, as well as mortgagee documentation if applicable

♦ Checking settlement statement received from the sellers conveyancer or lawyer, and ensuring rates and other apportionments have been calculated correctly

♦ Receipt of your contribution and mortgage funds (if applicable)  to our Trust Account upon settlement, and payment of funds to the sellers conveyancer or lawyers trust account

♦ Completing electronic registration of the transfer of ownership to you as new owner, and registration of mortgage (if applicable)

♦ Final reporting to you and mortgagee, including copy of updated Certificate of Title.

Because settlements are conducted electronically, we may act as your conveyancer regardless of where you are located (although certain documentation will need to be signed under witness).

If you are in the early stages of seeking a property to purchase, then please contact us for valuable buyer information relevant to your circumstances (provided at no cost to you).  To appoint us as your conveyancer, simply insert our details to the final page of the Agreement for Sale and Purchase, and ensure that we are provided with a copy of the agreement as soon as possible. We then contact you to confirm all details and commence the process.

If you are purchasing a property privately, and require a Sale and Purchase Agreement to be prepared, then contact us with the details, as we can draft the contract for you.  Usually we can provide you with the contract for signing within one to two business days.
