2What is Transfer of Property?
Transfer of property or conveyancing is done by registered
conveyancers. Conveyancing is the legal process of obtaining
ownership of a property. A written contract of sale of the
property must first be signed by the Seller and the Purchaser.
The property transfer process in order to pass and register
the Purchaser’s new ownership in the property then occurs
at the Deeds office. Any mortgage bonds required to
secure loans for the purchase price may be registered at
the same time and any existing bonds may be cancelled.
3Can costs be saved on property transfers?
Substantial savings can be made by the use of our
quick and cost-effective online services and accurate
quoting for work required.
4Who pays the costs?
The Purchaser is liable for transfer costs even though
the Seller usually appoints the Conveyancer. The
Purchaser can, however, choose the Conveyancer if
the Seller agrees to this
