Conveyancing is the process of transferring legal ownership of a property. There is a number of processes that have to be completed before the purchaser can claim full legal possession, so your conveyancer Adelaide will guide you through. Our services cover:
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 from our team will make sure you’re fully aware of the implications associated with both!
So, what’s the difference between joint tenants and tenants in common? It’s very common for a conveyancer Adelaide to get asked this question. Here’s a little insight. 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 will make sure you’re aware of all the different options, so you can pick one to suit you.
