Conveyancing FAQs

We know that you may have lots of questions in mind about conveyancer Sydney services, especially if you haven’t had a chance to work with a property lawyer before. Here are a few questions that we think will clear most of your doubts.

Can you discuss the matter over the phone, or do you want to meet in person?

We advise you on the terms and conditions contained in the contract, settlement periods, deposits, cooling-off periods, and a few other factors. They help us get an idea about the legal status of the property and the vendor.

Do I need to be present during the settlement?

No. The process is completely online which we think is super quick and efficient.Once the process starts, it is usually complete within half an hour.

What's the chance of the settlement date getting delayed?

While we don’t plan for it and always aim to be ready several days in advance, unexpected delays may arise due to other parties including the bank not being ready. We can assure you that that won’t happen from our end.

When do I collect my property's keys?

We know that you feel excited about getting your hands on the keys to your dream house. You can collect them on the day of the settlement after the agent is notified by both parties.
