A property will be offered for sale, either privately to the buyer, or at auction to the highest bidder. Usually, a potential buyer will obtain a copy of the contract, containing all the necessary documentation and terms from the seller directly or via the real estate agent, beforehand.
This is where your property lawyer steps in and reviews the contract on your behalf, clarifies the terms and conditions and informs and advises you of anything unusual or any potential complications you may face.
At Gavel & Page, we employ a team of highly skilled property lawyers who can assist with all your conveyancing needs throughout Sydney and the surrounding area.
We will negotiate on your behalf with the seller or the seller’s lawyer for a host of items, which may include:
Our property lawyers will ensure that the terms and conditions are in your favour, or, at the very least, that they are fair. Above all, we make sure you understand what you are agreeing to.
We do all the checks with third-party organisations and associations, some of which may be:
Searches such as these are not mandatory, but we strongly recommend them for our clients’ peace of mind. As we say, the purchase of property is likely to be the largest transaction you will ever make. Therefore, it makes sense to be prudent.
Finally, our property lawyers attend to the final settlement of the property on your behalf, liaise with banks, stakeholders and other parties and undertake the necessary due diligence for you to hold the keys in hand. We do this, so you do not have to lift a finger.
It is important for buyers to seek out timely and meaningful advice as to the various terms, risks and pitfalls associated with purchasing off-the-plan. Visit our comprehensive Conveyancing Price Guide For Sydney to find out more information

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.
