Legal and Conveyancing
Wisewould Mahony is a Melbourne based law firm that has a team of experienced practitioners in the field of property law who are qualified to represent purchasers and vendors in real estate conveyancing transactions.
While some conveyancing firms may claim to offer lower fees for comparable services, they can never provide the same level of services and legal representation that buyers and sellers of real estate will receive when represented by a law firm such as Wisewould Mahony.
In terms of our service, our client’s can expect the following:
- Full review of the contract of sale and the vendor’s statement, together with written advice explaining the terms and conditions and the purchaser’s obligations under the contract up to the settlement date;
- Preparation and lodgement of a caveat on the certificate of title to the property, which will protect the purchaser’s interest as purchaser pending settlement and completion of the contract;
- All correspondence and communications between our office and the vendor’s solicitor;
- All correspondence and communications between our office and the purchaser’s financier (if applicable);
- Advice in respect of the purchaser’s loan documentation (we will quote separately on this service dependant on the circumstances);
- Ordering and perusing relevant property certificates and conducting search enquiries relating to the property and providing the purchaser with advice in respect to same; and
- Preparation of transfer documentation, attending settlement and notifying the rating authorities of the change in ownership of the property after settlement.
- Preparation of sale documentation (including contract of sale, vendor’s statement and deposit release statement);
- All correspondence and communications between our office and the purchaser’s solicitors;
- All correspondence and communications between our office and the real estate agent;
- All correspondence and communications between our office and the vendor’s mortgagee to arrange the discharge of the mortgage on title (if applicable); and
- Notifying rating authorities (e.g. Council, Water Authority, State Revenue Office and Owners Corporation Manager (if applicable)) of the change in ownership of the property once settlement is complete.
Please note that whilst we are very competitive in our conveyancing fees for members the actual amount charged will include disbursements. Disbursements will vary depending on the circumstances of the transaction including whether or not the property sold is part of an owners corporation. We do not charge a premium on disbursements nor do we charge photocopying or facsimile costs.
