We all love a bit of DIY! The satisfaction of building some flat pack furnishings, rebuilding a wall or two in your home or even building your own website online – Aussies love it.
But when it comes to legal matters, anyone who represents themselves is a fool – even if they are a lawyer!
The buying or selling of property is going to arguably be one of the biggest and most expensive things you will ever do – so why wouldn’t you do it properly?
Conveyancing kits can cost around $100. You need to remember this is for the kit alone, not your time, searches and the processes you will need to pay to get what you are looking for. In the end, you won’t really be saving that much at all.
By contrast, you can find conveyance services that start from around $500 and can get to about $3000 depending on the complexity of your situation, but on such a massive asset such as your home, is it worth going it alone?
What does a conveyancing specialist offer?
A legal practitioner specialising in conveyance and property law understands what to look for in contracts, in builder’s plans and can negotiate every process that needs to be done to ensure a smooth and efficient sale or purchase of your home.
Although you can DIY your conveyancing, what happens if you miss a critical date? What about forgetting to hand in all the required documents? OR you miss some fine print which allows builders to alter the plan to their ultimate discretion, making changes to what you thought you were buying, without your consent or knowledge – yes, this does happen!
The key to a successful exchange of property contracts, sale or purchase of property is to get it done right, done the first time and done professionally.
With the right conveyance team, you can worry about how you are going to DIY renovate or furnish your new home, not about reading up on the property law acts of the Commonwealth, state and local laws, restrictions and all other elements that your legal professionals understand back to front.
While DIY might be a popular trend right now, conveyancing law is not something you should do without the necessary legal experience or background. Think carefully before you DIY your property legals, otherwise you might end up losing more than you gain, because saving a few hundred dollars may cost you thousands or even the sale of your home in the long run.
