Buying a Property

When buying a property, there are a number of steps required to complete the process. These steps can vary depending on your location, but our team have the experience to look after your buying journey. We ensure that you’re kept in the loop from start to finish, and we’ll take every precaution to protect you from being defrauded or unfairly treated.

  1. Your Check-list to Success

    An initial consultation with the friendly team at Conveyancing Lab will help you get the ball rolling. We’ll discuss what you are buying, any loans, fees and what we offer as part of our professional service. Upon agreeing to utilise our services, we will then create a check-list to ensure you know the entire process, and what you need to do next.

  2. Get Our Professional Advice

    Once you know which property you wish to purchase, we will ask you to have the selling agent forward the contract of sale to our office. We then inspect and advise you if any clauses in the contract may need to be negotiated or deleted.

  3. Help Us Help You

    Following the exchange of contracts between us and the seller, you will need to arrange with your loan provider a time to sign the documentation. You will also arrange building insurance for your new home if required.
    In order for you to organise removalists, mail redirections, utilities or other important matters, we’ll notify you of the settlement date asap. We will then liaise with your loan provider and the vendor’s conveyancer to further organise and confirm the settlement time and date.

  4. Communication is Key

    We now lodge any inquiries to all relevant public entities to ensure there are no plans or hidden easements that may affect the property after the sale. If there are any concerns regarding the property, we will notify you immediately before taking the next step.

  5. Final Steps

    After preparing the settlement figures with your lender, we will attend the settlement on your behalf to ensure that it all goes according to our plan. Once this is complete, we arrange for you to pick up the keys to your new property.
