Law firms know best – why you should engage a legal practice to provide a holistic service on your next conveyancing matter

by | Apr 26, 2023 | Conveyancing, Property Law

Buying or selling a home can be one of the biggest events in your life. At Cheney Suthers, we have solicitors, a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing clerks to guide you through the process with ease.

You might wonder whether you should engage a law practice or a conveyancer when buying or selling a property. Both solicitors and licensed conveyancers are trained and regulated professionals that are qualified to advise in relation to a sale or purchase of a home. The difference is that a solicitor can act and advise you in other areas of law, where a conveyancer is only licensed to act in property-related transactions.

At Cheney Suthers, we can offer access to both solicitors and a licensed conveyancer, meaning that you do not need to take legal advice from any other firm during your property transaction. Our advice to you not only includes those matters relating to the property, but also advice in relation to your ownership of the property and how this may impact any other businesses which you hold an interest in. We can also provide advice in relation to asset protection and securing the property for the benefit of your family.

Our advice also extends to the impact of the transaction on your estate planning needs and how buying or selling a property may affect you and subsequently your family. If you have a blended family, this may be a very important step when you are discussing how and when you purchase a property.

Engaging our firm means that we can provide legal advice, if required, on any loan and security documents, guarantee and indemnities and any other document that the bank may require you to sign in order to secure your finance. This simplifies the process by only dealing with one firm for the whole transaction.

We can provide you with advice on claims for adverse possession and in relation to easements and restrictions on the title, as well as the process and procedures for removal or enforcement, in the event of a dispute.

In the circumstance where a dispute arises and you need to take enforcement action with the Court, a conveyancer cannot appear and would need to refer you on to a solicitor. At Cheney Suthers, we can assist in the unlikely event of a dispute.
