Buying and selling a home is one of the most important contracts you will be involved in during your lifetime. Some people will only ever do this once, some will buy and sell multiple times. Regardless of how experience you might be with these types of transactions, the importance of getting them right and protecting your own interests remains paramount. The importance of sound legal advice when you buy or sell cannot be underestimated.
House, Unit and Land purchase and sales
Commonly referred to as a conveyance, these types of transactions normally involve a person nominating a solicitor on a pre-prepared contract of sale, usually provided by the seller or the seller's agent. If you sign a contract without having first sought legal advice, you should do so immediately upon signing to ensure you fully understand the contract of sale and your legal obligations, rights and protections.
