From Traditional to Innovative: Blogs About Legal Matters

There have been a few times in my life that I have needed a lawyer, and during those times, their help was invaluable. I worked with lawyers during the custody battle for my kids, when I dissolved the partnership for my business and after I suffered an injury at work. In this blog, I plan to write about the law from a range of angles. I may share posts inspired by my personal experiences, what's popular in the news or what strikes my fancy when I'm writing. I have a daughter, Oliva. I manage a medical clinic, and I love blogging. I hope you like the results. My name is Melinda, and thanks for reading!

Conveyancer by Your Side

by Júnia Melo

The buying and selling of property is not always a straightforward willing-buyer, willing-seller situation that goes smoothly. Several issues can arise during the process. One of these issues is the legal aspect of the transaction and the legal boundaries defining the exchange. For both buyer and seller, this can be a murky realm that is not easy to navigate. That is why you need a certified and registered conveyancer by your side. While you are not strictly required to engage a conveyancer during these transactions, here are some compelling reasons why these individuals can be to your advantage.

Conveyancer for the buyer

For a buyer, the process of selecting and acquiring property can be a roller coaster.  You need to make sure all the T's are crossed and I's dotted since you are the one with everything to gain, loose, or save. A conveyancer plays several crucial roles for buyers. For a start, the preparation and lodging of legal documents surrounding the purchase will be done by this individual. Such documents as memoranda of understanding and sale contracts should be prepared and gone through by a legal professional acquainted with the jargon. The conveyancer also searches and certifies the property before you can rest assured that you are getting something legitimate from the proper person. With the help of this individual, you and your seller can calculate the appropriate adjustments on items such as rates and taxes on the property as well. Overall, the conveyancer's ultimate role boils down to settling the property with your seller and other parties involved such as banks or other finance institutions that may be in the picture.

Conveyancer for the seller

Not only buyers benefit from conveyancers. Sellers too can gain immensely from the aid of these individuals in their transactions. For a start, the same legal documents required by the buyer from the seller can be prepared and ascertained by the conveyancer on behalf of the buyer. All questions regarding the title of your property, present or past, will be easily sorted by the conveyancer. Also, the conveyancer acts on your behalf to address all questions and issues arising from the buyer. This is a good practice since not everybody is in the mood to engage with buyers and convince them of several aspects of the purchase. Having a conveyancer deal with the buyers directly is a better way of tackling such situations.
