The Conveyancing Process for Buyers

Free Initial Contract Review

So, you’ve discovered your perfect property and want to make an offer. What’s next? A contract review.

Providing us with a copy of the proposed Contract of Sale ensures that you understand exactly what you are getting into. We will undertake a thorough evaluation of the contract, carefully analysing any special conditions, property reports, and informing you of any restrictions associated with the property, such as easements.

We execute this process fast, taking into account the highly competitive nature of the property market, and it can be done in as little as 24 hours.

Pre-Settlement

As part of the pre-settlement process, our Brisbane conveyancers will do a title search to check that the vendor’s name matches the name recorded on the property title, as well as to determine whether any current restrictions apply.

We will also request other papers that will provide you with information on zoning and planning, Queensland Roads proposals, land and water levies, and previously issued building licences.

Contract of Sale

Whether you’re a buyer or seller, the contract of sale is the most significant document in the conveyancing procedure. It outlines the terms and conditions agreed upon by the vendor and you.

Once your offer is approved and you have signed the contract, we will begin the conveyancing process.

Adjustments

This relates to any rates, taxes, current leases, or outgoings that must be changed so that you are only liable for costs beginning with the settlement date. Adjustments are then subtracted or added to the total amount owing.

Bank

If you are getting financing to buy your property, we will work with your bank or credit union to organise settlement and supply them with any necessary documentation to ensure that your mortgage documents are prepared in a timely way prior to settlement.

Final Inspection

You have the right to do a final inspection of the property within the seven days preceding settlement, however it is recommended that you do it as close to settlement as feasible.

We strongly advise all of our clients to make time to attend a final inspection of the property, which must be arranged with the selling agent.

Settlement

The date of settlement is specified in the contract. It is usually only attended by both parties’ financial and legal representatives and is now performed electronically via the electronic conveyancing network PEXA.

Your Brisbane conveyancer will notify you as soon as they obtain confirmation that the settlement has been concluded.

The Conveyancing Process for Sellers

Our step-by step guide to selling your Brisbane property will provide information so you can better understand the conveyancing process. The general process for selling a property, is outlined below.

Pre-Contract

You must draft a Contract of Sale before you can put your house up for sale. A number of important documents will need to be sourced in order to compile these documents, including;

  • an inspection report if you made renovations to your property within the six and a half years prior to the sale. This will help the buyer be aware of any faults.
  • copies of the water notifications and tariffs that your local Brisbane City council has sent you. It is crucial that the contract fully discloses to prospective buyers all relevant information about the property, including outgoings costs.

Our conveyancers will conduct property searches to gather more precise property information after you have submitted all of the above documents.

Some of these additional searches may include:

  • Title search. 
  • Copy of plans which will include precise measurements to the borders of the land as well as a description of any easements or restrictions that may apply.
  • Property reports include information on heritage limitations, whether your property is in a region at risk of flooding or bushfires, and whether the state road authority has any plans for the area around your property.

Contract of Sale

The contract of sale is the most important document in the conveyancing process since it details the terms and conditions agreed upon by the buyer and you. It must be in written and signed by all parties concerned with the purchaser signing first.

When you list your property on the market, your real estate agent will be given a blank marketing contract to distribute to potential buyers.

Once a purchaser makes an offer and you accept it, the terms and conditions of the offer, such as the purchase price and any special circumstances, will be added to the contract. When signing the form, the purchaser will often fill in details such as the sale price and settlement date.

The purchaser may request that the contract include special conditions such as ‘subject to finance’ or ‘subject to a building and inspection‘. This signifies that the sale will only proceed if the conditions are met. For example, if the buyer’s financing has not been unconditionally authorised, a ‘subject to finance’ clause allows them to terminate the contract without penalty if their loan application is denied. These unique restrictions are extremely frequent, and you, as the seller, must agree to them as part of the terms of the sale.
