Yes. We handle both residential and commercial conveyances in Queensland.
It is not advisable to act for yourself in a conveyance. Contracts for sale of residential land are subject to time limits and deadlines such as obtaining finance, building and pest inspections and settlement of the conveyance itself. Those time limits are subject to a “time of the essence” clause which means that failure to comply strictly with time limits can result in legal rights being affected resulting in termination of your contract, forfeiture of a deposit or breach. Having a professional to handle your conveyance will give you peace of mind and ensure that your legal rights are protected.
A Conveyancer is a highly experienced paralegal backed up by an experienced Solicitor. Conveyancers generally handle your conveyance (after the initial review of the contract) from the day you sign the contract through to completion of your settlement. Only Conveyancers are authorised to act for clients under the supervision of a Solicitor in Queensland unlike other States and Territories in Australia.
