What do most people want in a conveyancing company? What should you be looking for in a firm?
People often search the internet for options but most of the time, they don’t know what they should look for. After getting a couple or maybe three quotes, they end up just comparing prices. The sad part about that is the price does not necessarily dictate the quality of the service even if it’s the most expensive or the cheapest quote out there. Here are a few things you should look for:
- Go with a solicitor rather than a conveyancer. Conveyancers may be cheaper but solicitors will give you more security and peace of mind.
- Look for a company that has a fixed professional fee. Others still charge by the hour or per call and this will cost you a fortune.
- Costs should be transparent. Their price should always be separated into professional fee and search fees because searches are external costs and always an estimated price.
- Check their reviews. Some companies fail to maintain good communication throughout the process. Unanswered emails and unreturned calls are some of the complaints you’ll find.
At LEAD, you get top-notch professional property lawyer services at a fixed professional fee. We are backed up by satisfied client reviews who keep on coming back and recommending more customers. Our business model is in line with today’s technology enabling us to provide our services at the most competitive price you can find.
Selling Property Services
When you buy a property, the first two most important documents in your purchase are the Contract of Sale and Section 32.
In some cases, you get “Section 32” first from the agent. And then the contract follows when your offer gets accepted. “Section 32” is what’s called the vendor statement which contains vendor declared information about the property. The contract, on the other hand, stipulates the agreement between you and the Seller including special conditions, if applicable.
It is in your best interest as the purchaser to have these documents thoroughly reviewed first before signing, and the wisest move is to have them reviewed by a property lawyer. This is one of the most crucial steps in conveyancing and potential headache and unnecessary expenses can be waiting for you down the road if taken for granted. So when you see a company on the internet advertising “Free Contract Review”, you better think twice because…
- One – It may look like it’s free in the beginning but it may be included later on.
- And two – No one will invest time and money for years to be a lawyer just to give their services for free
At LEAD, we take these things seriously. We scrutinise every line and detail to identify any potential risk on your part. Remember, we as a professional law firm will act on your behalf so if anything fails on your part, it’s the reputation of our business and license that are on the line.
How we provide Cheap Conveyancing
Cranbourne Conveyancing Services
Our business model was built with the aim to provide top-notch and professional lawyer services to customers out there at the most competitive price possible.
A lot of businesses and people out there are still used to the old traditional way of conveyancing where you go to your local solicitor or conveyancer’s office to submit paper documents. They are still used to face to face meetups where they discuss the details of their purchase. That’s too outdated!
It’s the 21st century and the waves of technology continue to wipe the past. Those that can’t keep up get left behind. Technology’s purpose is to make our lives easier and more efficient. That’s how we were able to achieve our vision.
LEAD has embraced a 100% virtual and online business structure where everything can be done at your fingertips. As long as you have access to a computer or a smartphone, we can do business and we will get the work done!
Why do you need Solicitors?
Buying Property Services
Yes, it’s true. Conveyancers are cheaper than solicitors. However, it is like comparing apples to oranges.
Although they can both do the job from start to finish, a solicitor provides you with security since they can go the extra mile and defend you legally should things get out of hand. When the process of purchasing your house becomes complicated and disagreements between you and the seller start, your lawyer will be able to protect your interest and your money. Yes, a conveyancer will be cheaper by around 200 or maybe 300 dollars at the most but would you take that in exchange for peace of mind?
Getting a solicitor over a conveyancer is just like getting an extra layer of protection for your 6-figure investment property or your new home bought from your hard-earned money. And yes while it’s true that complicated situations will not happen all the time, you obviously wouldn’t want to get caught in a situation off-guard. It’s just like you getting a life vest even though you know how to swim or it looks like the sea is calm. It’s better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.
