Conveyancing is a legal term that refers to the action of moving the official ownership of land title on to a new owner. Basically, it is the service that supports the transfer of property. Although it may seem fairly straightforward, potential problems during the process can cost thousands of dollars and a lot of frustration and stress. For this reason, it is highly important to choose a licensed conveyancer who is well equipped to handle the rigours of contractual arrangements.
A conveyancing solicitor helps with the settlement and title transfer to ensure all legal obligations are met and rights are protected during the transaction. A conveyancer drafts and reviews various documentation such as Contracts for Sale and Contracts of the Sale of Land. They ensure critical dates are met and are mindful of time-sensitive deadlines. They also liaise with the other party's representation.
Buyers and sellers engage conveyancers to act on their behalf and in their best interests. It is the conveyancer's job to ensure that the property transaction goes smoothly. Conveyancers are equipped with the legal experience and knowledge needed for a successful property transaction.
During the conveyancing process, searches are undertaken for the purpose of making adjustments to the sale price at the time of settlement. Adjustments will need to be made to items such as water, rates and body corporate fees. Other searches are also undertaken on the property to reveal relevant information that may affect your decision on whether or not you still wish to buy the property. For example, a Flood Search will reveal whether the property has ever flooded and the level of the last property flood.
Yes. Some property searches are non-negotiable. These include:
A title search is crucial and a non-negotiable search. This search will reveal who the registered owner is and any dealings which have been registered on the title, such as the seller's mortgage, easements and any caveats which need to be removed prior to settlement.
Title searches are undertaken twice. The first is when you sign the contract (to ensure the details on the contract are correct) and the second is on the settlement morning (to ensure that there isn't anything registered on the title which may prevent you from settling such as a caveat).
A search of the registered plan will show you the exact boundary of the property lot including the area and where the lot is situated on the street. This is important as you want to ensure that the lot you intend on purchasing is correct before it is transferred to you.
Easements and encumbrances will be revealed when a title search is undertaken. If you have either an easement or an encumbrance, it's important to carry out a search to ascertain further information on how this affects the property. It's an important search as an easement and or encumbrance may prohibit you from doing something to your land or allow another party to access your land. For example, the easement could be for drainage, access, stormwater with a manhole on-site to allow the council to access. This could mean that you would not be permitted to ever build over this site.
A land tax search checks to see whether there are any land taxes owing on the property before you take possession. This tax may be passed on to the buyer if the seller does not make payment of the overdue amount owing at settlement.
It's important to note that if you are purchasing a property off-the-plan or directly from a company (or even an individual with multiple properties), it is likely that you will be liable to pay land tax.
What are some other common searches that are recommended but are not compulsory?
Other common searches include:
This type of search will reveal any current proposals and resumption information for all roads, ports and railway lines. It's useful to know whether the local council are planning to build roads near the property you intend on buying.
An Energex search will show whether the property is connected via normal tariff conditions.
If the property you are purchasing is listed on the Environmental Management Register or Contaminated Land Register, this search will reveal this.
This search will reveal whether the property is in a noise corridor.
All swimming pools on properties must have a current and valid pool safety certificate. A Pool Safety Register search will reveal this as the contract will be subjected to the buyer being satisfied that a pool safety certificate can be issued.
This type of search will provide details of orders issued by QCAT of disputes over trees and dividing fences the seller may be involved in.
This will reveal the amount that is payable for rates on the property and whether the seller has paid their rates up to date or if there is a balance outstanding. If so, this will need to be paid by the seller before settlement.
Special Water Meter Reading:
This search allows a water meter reading so that usage can be accurately adjusted close to settlement between the buyer and seller.
This useful search will reveal whether the property has ever flooded and the level of the last flood.
Building Approval Search and Building Property Notices Search:
This type of search provides details on renovations and additions made to the existing property and includes structures such as decks and carports. If the additions made in the building work has not been approved by council, then you may find yourself being issued with a Show Cause Notice from the council after the sale of purchase.
Yes, there are searches you can do to safeguard your interests against the seller if you have particular concerns. These include:
Every property is different, and some will require certain searches, that others won't. For this reason, our experienced team will be able to advise you on which searches are needed to be undertaken for your specific property. You may also want to have a consultation before signing the contract as we can advise you on anything in particular to look out for, prior to signing it.
