Clearing and collecting payments from buyers/sellers are the first stages in the Melbourne conveyancing process. The second stage is related to legal issues, contract interpretation and preparation of all the required documents. The third stage involves the preparation all bills and accounts to be ready for the closing phase.

If you are a seller, then you need to prepare all the necessary papers before you start the conveyancing. These papers include the deed for trust agreement, contract to sell, statutory declaration, contract for the exchange or registration of deeds. This is not a requirement for every seller. However, many sellers do it as it is an important part of the legal process. You should prepare these papers at the least one year before you plan on selling your property to make a good impression.

Buying a house

Before buying a house, you need to be aware of the property chain issues. A property chain describes the sequence of transactions between the parties involved in the purchase of a house. The first transaction occurs when you transfer the deed to ownership to the buyer. The next step is to register the property as his owner. He becomes the second purchaser and the lien holder on the property. And now the third party, the buyer, is the one who is going to purchase the property.

Some property owners aren’t sure how to proceed. These questions should be answered. First, you should understand the difference between a short chain and a long chain. A short chain is a shorter chain that is less than one year long and has no delays. Contrarily, a long chain can have delays and must be completed at least 12 weeks after you have transferred the deed to ownership to the buyer.

There are many issues that can arise and they all have to do with the short chain. One of these is the legal process. There are two possible ways to handle the legal process. One involves a lawyer, and one does not. Experts recommend that you choose the latter. A lawyer will be able to handle all the technicalities of the legal process so that you do not have to worry about anything else. An expert can help you complete all the steps within the timeframe that you have set.


Cost of conveyancing

Conveyancing can also incur costs. The first is the fee for the conveyancer. This fee is non-refundable and is paid to the estate agent only after you have conveyed the deed of ownership. Then there are other legal fees like conveyancing attorney or the conveyancing lender etc. These fees can vary depending upon the type of deal.


After all this has been done, the next stage of the conveyancing process sees you getting draft contracts signed. This is known as the “signing” stage and can take up to two weeks. When the documents are signed by both the parties, the process is over and you can proceed to accept the offered property.

You have two options: you can hire a solicitor, or you can do it all yourself. If you want to arrange for a solicitor, you can look up solicitors online. Some of them are even offering to do the entire process for free. All you need to do is provide them with all the required information. Once they have completed the process, your property will be transferred to you.
