What are the responsibilities of a conveyancer?

A conveyancer is a qualified professional who specialises in property transactions and is responsible for overseeing the legal aspects of buying or selling a property.

The responsibilities of a conveyancer include:

Reviewing and preparing the legally binding contract of sale: A conveyancer will review the contract of sale to ensure that it is legally binding and that it accurately reflects the terms of the sale as agreed upon by both parties.

Carrying out necessary checks and searches: A conveyancer will carry out various checks and searches to ensure that there are no issues with the property, such as outstanding mortgages or planning permission.

Advising on the transfer of ownership: A conveyancer will advise on the transfer of ownership and ensure that all necessary paperwork is completed and filed with the relevant authorities.

Advising on stamp duty and land tax: A conveyancer will advise on the stamp duty and land tax that is payable on the transfer of ownership and ensure that it is paid on time.

Preparing and lodging any necessary documents: A conveyancer will prepare and lodge any necessary documents, such as the transfer of land, mortgage and discharge of mortgage.

Coordinating the settlement: A conveyancer will coordinate the settlement process, including arranging for the transfer of funds and transfer of ownership

Representing the client in court: If any legal issues arise during the conveyancing process, the conveyancer will represent the client in court and ensure their interest are protected.

Communicating with the client: A conveyancer will keep the client informed throughout the process and provide regular updates on the progress of the transaction.

It's important to work with a qualified and experienced conveyancer to ensure that the process runs smoothly and to identify any potential issues early on.
