Wollongong Conveyancers FAQs

Conveyancing is the process of transferring ownership (or title) of a property from one party to another and includes all of the steps involved in the transaction.

Once you have found a property you would like to purchase, you will be asked by the real estate agent to sign the contract for sale and pay an initial deposit of 0.25% of the contract price. This will remove the property from the market and stop the vendor from selling to another party.

When a purchaser enters into a contract for sale they have something called a cooling-off period which is normally the length of five (5) business days. The cooling-off period is in place so that if for any reason the purchaser does not want to go through with the purchase they can rescind (pull out or cancel) the contract. It is important to note that if you choose to pull out during the cooling-off period, you will forfeit the 0.25% deposit paid when signing a contract to the vendor.

However, there is no cooling-off period if you have instructed your lawyer/licensed conveyancer to sign a section 66w certificate which waives your cooling-off right. A cooling-off period does also not apply to a property purchased at auction or a property that is considered non-residential (which includes property over 2.5 hectares). It is important to have your loan formally approved and inspections carried out before attending an auction or before waiving your cooling-off rights.

Settlement is the conclusion of the transaction between the vendor and the purchaser. While settlement normally occurs 6 weeks (42 days) after exchange, the settlement period can be altered to suit the particular transaction or to suit the needs of the parties.

A Licensed Conveyancer is not able to provide legal advice and or act in a dispute for a party in relation to the property. A Licensed Conveyancer may only act on your behalf in relation to a transaction regarding the transfer of title of property. If you have a dispute in relation to a property transaction you will be required to instruct a Lawyer to act on your behalf. This is the benefit of Coutts where we have a team of experienced Licensed Conveyancers and Property Lawyers who understand your rights in a property law transaction or dispute.

It’s recommended to contact one of our Wollongong conveyancers as soon as you decide to buy or sell a property. This will ensure that we can guide you through the process and provide you with the necessary legal advice to make informed decisions throughout the transaction.

When choosing a Wollongong conveyancer, it’s essential to consider their experience, reputation, and qualifications. Look for a conveyancer who is licensed, reputable, reliable, and responsive.
