The sale of land will entail a contract with a number of set components, known as standard conditions. In some cases, the contract may also include special conditions, which override the standard terms in the event of any inconsistency. Conditions can be many and are unique to each property, buyer and seller.
Obtaining advice from an experienced property lawyer can help ensure your contract is tailored to the land you wish to sell and protect your interests until the sale is complete. Our Sydney-based team of highly skilled property lawyers can meet all your conveyancing needs, such as drafting a variety of contract conditions.
Conditions may vary for a host of reasons, including:
Let’s say, for instance, that you have granted your neighbour a right of footway over your property, which hasn’t been registered. Unless you disclose it, the purchaser has no means to actually know about it.
Before a property can legally be offered for sale, the contract must be drafted and a number of documents must be attached. Without these, the vendor or agent cannot show the property.
At Gavel & Page, our property lawyers will schedule a brief meeting or conversation with you to ensure we have all your necessary details and instructions. Thereafter, we get to work and prepare the documents for you. This is a very detail-heavy but not a time-consuming process. We carry out your instructions and include all the compliance measures. Once you have approved the documentation, we can act on your behalf with the real estate agent, potential purchasers and the eventual purchaser, or their solicitor.
After the property is sold, we manage every step of the final settlement to ensure that each party pays the required amount and that the property is sold with a clean title.
With Gavel & Page property lawyers, you can rest assured that every detail will be taken care of – from liaising with the seller’s and purchaser’s banks and ensuring that council rates and other relevant charges are up-to-date, to dealing with any caveats on title and ensuring mortgages are paid out, right down to handing over the keys. You can be confident the sale is legal and complete – giving you peace of mind.
I was a little cautious about lawyers generally, even more so since I was embarking on my very first development. A referral to Gavel & Page Lawyers let me put my previous concerns behind me. Open. Direct. Clear communication. Detailed and productive advice. Competitive fees. Down to earth and contactable. Not sure what else you need.
You guys were a pleasure to deal with! No nonsense, straight to the matter at hand and kept me calm the whole time… awesome!
Thank you for your service, much appreciated – we’ve moved in and very happy here.Joseph and Merlyn thank you both for our sell and buy transactions and everything in between – you always made time for us during the process. We really appreciate that you accommodated us with the 66W on the Saturday when we made the offer – it was crucial to our success in securing the property – we had been looking for a new home for over 15 months.
I engaged Gavel & Page lawyers to undertake some property conveyancing work for me and was extremely pleased with their service. During my search for a property they were very informative and made sure I understood my legal obligations under the ownership structure before I purchased so that I was set-up correctly from the beginning.After we purchased our property I was very impressed with their diligence, thoroughness and pro-active approach through the whole settlement process, completing all the necessary tasks in an efficient and timely manner. I would not hesitate in using their services again in the future and would highly recommend them. Many thanks for your help.
