Our Residential Conveyancing Services for Home Buyers

At HomeLegal, we’re experts in property law and conveyancing, and specialise in providing residential conveyancing services and advice for home buyers. Every conveyancing transaction is different and unique, and if you want to avoid serious problems when buying a property, using the collective experience of our HomeLegal team of property lawyers is the best way to put your mind at ease.

How Our Conveyancing Services Compare

Our HomeLegal team is made up of specialist conveyancing lawyers and legal executives. One of our lawyers and one of our legal executives will work together on your purchase from day one. Your lawyer deals with all legal aspects of the transaction, the contract terms, negotiations, and advising you through to the point that the contract becomes unconditional. Your experienced legal executive then looks after everything to do with the management of the file through to settlement. Where documents such as loan contracts and mortgages need to be signed, you will arrange to meet with your lawyer.

Residential Conveyancing Services for Home Buyers

What do our residential conveyancing services cover?
At HomeLegal, our property lawyers take care of all matters related to conveying or transferring ownership between yourself (the purchaser) and the seller (the vendor). We liaise between the vendor and real estate agent (where necessary) to ensure that the offer document is acceptable for signing and covers the matters you need assurance on. We will also help you understand the investigations you need to make and the numerous documents provided by the agent.
