Frequently Asked Questions

Conveyancing is the process of attending to all legal requirements for transferring ownership of a property from a seller to a buyer. It includes the preparation of documentation, liaising with banks and Government agencies, exchange of title documentation and settlement funds, and notifying the relevant authorities of the transfer.

We advise our clients to always engage a conveyancer, preferably a lawyer, to attend to the legal requirements of a conveyancing transaction, in addition to administrative and practical tasks which must be considered and completed in a sale or purchase transaction.

If the purchaser is unable to pay on the day of settlement, they will be at risk of breaching their obligations and being in default of the sale agreement. Consequently, they may forfeit their deposit.

The deposit paid by the purchaser is either held by the estate agent or solicitor in a trust account until settlement, or until the purchaser releases the deposit pursuant to Section 27 of the Sale of Land Act 1962.

An easement is a proprietary interest in someone else’s land. It is a right held by a person to use land owned by another person, most commonly rights of way, or for services, such as water, electricity, and sewerage.

A covenant is an agreement between property owners restricting how a property may be used. A covenant may prohibit the construction of more than one dwelling, the further subdivision of the land, or the use of certain building materials, and is enforceable against the property owner by the person who takes the benefit of the obligations outlined in the caveat.

A caveat is a document that can be lodged by a person at the Titles Office (Land Victoria). Once the caveat is registered, a notice appears on the title, thereby providing a written warning that the person claims an interest over the property, such as a purchaser or creditor.

There is no cooling-off period in a sale by auction.

In contrast, there is typically a cooling-off period in private sale transactions.

In a property subdivision, the property having one single title is split into multiple titles, which will allow you to sell parts of your property.
