SO, WHAT IS CONVEYANCING?

Conveyancing is the process of transferring legal ownership of a property. There are a number of processes that have to be completed before the purchaser can claim full legal possession, so your conveyancer Adelaide Hills will guide you through. Our services cover:

  • Residential settlements;
  • Business settlements;
  • Commercial property settlements
  • Rural settlements;
  • Land division;
  • Preparation of private contracts;
  • Leases – rural & commercial;
  • Deceased estates;
  • Family and matrimonial transfers;
  • Caveats and more!

We make sure all the legislative requirements have been met, and that your eligibility for any exemptions (like stamp duty) are noted. Our team will also provide you with ownership advice, as it’s easy to make impractical decisions in the moment. By ownership, we mean whether you’re buying the property as joint tenants or tenants-in-common. A conveyancer Adelaide Hills from our team will make sure you’re fully aware of the implications associated with both!

JOINT TENANTS VS TENANTS IN COMMON

So, what’s the difference between joint tenants and tenants in common? It’s very common for a conveyancer Adelaide Hills to get asked this question.  Joint tenancy is a typical option for couples purchasing their first home. It’s when both tenants obtain equal shares of the property, with the same deed. Joint tenancy can be broken if one member chooses to sell or transfer their half of the property. Tenants in Common is less structured, as the tenants may have different ownership interests. For example, tenant A may own 30 percent of the property, while tenants B and C could own 35 percent each. There is also no obligation to commit within the same time frame. An individual might come along and invest years after the others. Our conveyancer Adelaide Hills will make sure you’re aware of all the different options, so you can pick one to suit you.

If you’re purchasing or leasing a property but have no idea what the legal transfer obligations are, contact our team on (08) 8212 4034 today! We operate wide-spread, with offices in both Mt Barker and Adelaide. Don’t let the stress overwhelm you, take your queries to a qualified conveyancer Adelaide.
