Tips for Meeting With a Conveyancer When Buying Property

If you have decided to purchase property, then you might have been advised to hire conveyancing services. After all, as you might have heard when getting advice about making a real estate transaction, a licensed conveyancer can be very helpful when it's time for you to sign contracts and transfer property into your name. If you are preparing to meet with a conveyancer and want to be prepared for your meeting, these tips should be really helpful.

Make Sure They're Licensed

First of all, the whole point of hiring a conveyancer to help you with buying property is to work with someone who is properly licensed and experienced to help you out. Therefore, before meeting with the conveyancer, you should make sure that they are competent and qualified for the job. Licensed conveyancers in Australia have to undergo the appropriate legal training and must work under a licensed lawyer for a certain period of time. They also have to have proper insurance.

Start Making Plans

You can meet with a conveyancer at any point in the process when you are thinking about buying property. However, it's a good idea to make plans about the property that you want to purchase, the timeline that you want to purchase within, how you are going to acquire the necessary funds to purchase the property, and more. If you start making plans now, you will know when to meet with a conveyancer, and you will be able to provide them with the best and most relevant information, too.

Bring Along All Relevant Information 

You will need to bring along some relevant information when you meet with a conveyancer. These are some of the things that you should bring along:

  • Information about the property that you want to purchase, such as a description and legal address for the property
  • Proof of who you are, such as by bringing along your passport or government ID
  • Proof that you have available funds to purchase the property, such as a letter of approval from your bank or a bank statement that proves you have the funds available in the bank
  • Any purchasing contract that the seller might have presented you with
  • Any documents that you might have received due to having land surveys or inspections done on the property that you're thinking about purchasing

If you follow these tips and work alongside the conveyancer, then you should not have to worry about too many problems when purchasing property in Australia.

Human Resources: How to Hire and Fire

Hello, my name is James. I own a medium-sized company. When I first started out, it was just me and my tools. However, as the company became more successful, I had to start hiring other people. At first, most of the people who came to work for me were old friends, so I didn't worry about contracts. We just shook hands and had a beer. This worked fine until I had a dispute over pay with one of my employees. I got in touch with an HR consultant who helped me to put the correct HR procedures in place to protect myself and my business. I decided to start this blog to advise others about how to hire and fire staff.
