Dean Michael Solicitors incorporating South NSW Conveyancing

Helping people on their way to buying a home or new business is one of the most rewarding parts of our job. It’s a big investment, and whether you’re buying, selling or leasing, you’ll want a conveyancing solicitor to look after your interests.

What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the process of transferring ownership of rights from one party to another. This could be for your business, your home or for your lease (either as a tenant or a landlord).

Who is conveyancing for?

If you’re buying, selling or have a rental lease agreement for property or business, it’s important to have a conveyancing lawyer on your side. As your solicitor, we’ll ensure that you’re meeting all legal obligations, and that your rights are protected throughout the transaction.

We can help you with

  • Buying and Selling
  • Contract Preparation for Vendors
  • Contract Advice for Purchasers
  • Commercial lease agreements (including retail leasing), acting for both landlords and tenants.

What we can do for you

We’ll make sure your transaction goes as smoothly possible. A big part of what a conveyancing solicitor does is investigate the title of the property on your behalf. We’ll check anything that might affect the property – like any money or rates owed, development plans, or illegal buildings. Once you’re aware of anything that might affect the contract, we can then review or negotiate contract changes for you.

We’ll also act on your behalf to help you with:

  • Certificate of Title searches
  • Obtaining a Land Tax certificate
  • Obtaining the required documents from the local authorities (s149(2) Certificates, Sewer Diagram)
  • Advice on how local council s149(2) certificate and how it effects the property
  • Advice on the effect of easements and covenants (where you can build, if you can have pets, fire hazards, building materials)
  • Discharging of caveats and security interests
  • Preparation and certification of legal documents
  • Stamping of required documents for payment of stamp duty
  • Calculation of adjustments of rates and taxes
  • Preparation of settlement statements
  • Liaising with mortgagors and financiers to discharge your mortgage or arrange the bank cheques on settlement
  • Attendance at settlement
  • Drafting and negotiating special conditions that are right for your purchase or sale
  • Considering if you need a clause to release or allow the deposit to be used to secure another property in the interim
  • Arranging property, pest and strata reports / inspections.
