Selling a house is very different from buying one. While most first-home sellers will want to focus on maximising sale profit, sorting out the legal paperwork is just as important – if not more so – to ensure you don’t get caught out by legal complications down the line.
When it comes to selling a house, you’ll want to ensure that you have your best foot forward. This process includes choosing the right real estate agent, staging your home, getting any necessary repairs done, taking beautiful photos, and more. Just as important, however, is getting your sale contract correctly worded.
At HomeLegal our property lawyers sort out all the legal contract concerns for you making the conveyancing process go smoothly. Here’s a list of fundamental paperwork you can leave in our capable hands if you’re thinking of selling a house:
- Reviewing the listing agreement
- Obtaining a Land Information Memorandum (LIM) Report should you wish to provide one as part of your marketing
- Unit title disclosure;
- The Sale agreement
- Advice on Conditions
- Settlement with the Purchaser
- Discharging your mortgage and repaying any loans;
- Transferring the Title in Land Information New Zealand (LINZ)
Negotiating the Sale Agreement
It’s crucial that you consult your property lawyer before you sign anything, especially the Sale Agreement. You will need advice on the appropriate clauses to be included. Our team are available throughout to ensure that every step of the way the right choices are made and the right advice is given.

Our Fixed Conveyancing Fees
The legal costs of buying or selling your home are generally split into two parts: the legal fees a solicitor charges for doing conveyancing work, and the disbursements and associated costs your solicitor needs to pay to third parties.
When it comes to costs, you may think that budgeting is out of the question because all lawyers are expensive and charge by the minute. Well, not at HomeLegal.
Although disbursements are unavoidable, as professional property solicitors we understand the importance to you of knowing the cost of your proposed conveyancing transaction before you engage a lawyer to assist. You don’t want unexpected surprises late in the piece. To help you budget, at HomeLegal we offer FIXED PRICE conveyancing with no surprises.
