What does a conveyancer do?

Consulting with a conveyancer

If you’re new to buying a house, you may not know what a conveyancer does. You’re likely to have been asked to provide the details of your conveyancing agent to your real estate agent, and maybe you’ve looked blank—why do we need one of them, why can’t I do this myself?

Unless you are a legal expert, you will need the services of a professional conveyancer. Our team of PEXA certified conveyancing professionals at can help you buy or sell your property.

Do You Really Need a Conveyancer?

Both buyers and sellers have legal duties under the contract of sale. They should use a professional conveyancing services. You can always try to save yourself some money and do it yourself, however, are the risks worth it when you consider the cost of hiring a professional?

As a buyer, you will usually be required to pay a deposit, which you may lose if there is a mistake in the conveyancing process, and as a vendor, a legal issue which is overlooked can cost you a sale. We will ensure all necessary reports are carried out.

What Searches Does a Conveyancer Do?

An example of the search a conveyor can undertake on your behalf would be the title search, to make sure the property belongs to the owner. This can also confirm whether there are any debts on the property, other liabilities, or if the property is subject to liens.

Other searches can include: local authority and planning searches, structural searches, pest reports, strata for apartments to check if the building is running at loss, etc.

Mandatory searches must be attached to contracts of sale by vendors. Other searches may be carried out by buyers’ conveyancers. When buying, you don’t necessarily need to do all the searches yourself. You can ask your conveyancer to organise which ones you need. They will then carry them out.
