Link Conveyancing offers a full range of conveyancing services and can assist you with any transaction in Victoria.

 

 


 

 

Buying

Link Conveyancing can represent you for any purchase transaction in Victoria. Our experienced staff have expert knowledge in a range of transactions including:

  • Residential Homes and Units
  • Vacant Land
  • Off the Plan
  • Commercial Property
  • Separate Car Park spaces

 

How We Assist You With Your Purchase

  • We offer contract advice on request prior to signing, and alert you to any “buyer beware” dangers.
  • We then prepare the Transfer of Land and any documents that can reduce your Stamp Duty where applicable. E.g. Principal Place of Residence Concession, First Home Owners Grant and Pensioner Exemption/Concession.
  • On your instructions, we can lodge a caveat to protect your interest under the Contract of Sale, between the date you sign the Contract and the date a transfer into your name is registered at the Titles Office. Without such an endorsement, there can be a dispute between you and subsequent interested parties (such as a 2nd purchaser) as to who is entitled to the land.
  • We aid your broker or banker by providing all legal documents required to obtain finance approval.
  • We will request finance extensions, if necessary, should you experience any bank delay with unconditional finance approvals required by a set date.
  • Should your bank not grant you unconditional approval of finance, we also help you to withdraw from the Contract.
  • We order all required certificates (State Revenue Office, Council and Water Rates) so that we may provide a Statement of Adjustments required for settlement.
  • We arrange a settlement time suitable with both your bank and the vendor’s conveyancer/solicitor.
  • We inform you of any remaining funds that are required in order for settlement to occur (shortfall amount).
  • We notify the vendor’s Real Estate Agent of the date of settlement.
  • We inform the relevant water, council and any Owners Corporation bodies, if relevant, of your new ownership of the property.

If you require the Title to be in an alternative name, Link Conveyancing can also assist you with the change and will arrange any concessions in Stamp Duty, if applicable.

The following are examples of various circumstances whereby you may require a Transfer and how Link Conveyancing can assist you:

  • A spouse or partner may be added to the title (Love & Affection)
  • A change of ownership between family members (Gift)
