Monkey's Guide to How Conveyancing Works
Conveyancing is the process of transferring ownership of land from one person to another, under the terms of a contract for the sale of that land. That's it!
Understanding how conveyancing works means understanding that every Australian State has different law, forms, regulations, fees, time requirements, protections, jargon and government departments as part of the conveyancing process.
But basically each State follows the same steps - just the details changes.
Whether you are buying or selling, there is a Contract that sets out the terms of the sale. The Buyer and Seller have obligations and rights under the Contract. The Conveyancer's job is to make sure you do what you are supposed to do when you are supposed to do it. That is what Monkey does best.
