Property & Conveyancing

As Bayside Solicitors is a well-rounded practice, assisting with both private and commercial issues, we have experienced property lawyers and support staff as part of our team of criminal, small business, commercial, family and divorce lawyers.

Conveyancing, as it relates to the buying and sellingof property, involves the transfer of titles from one party to another. Although conveyancing sounds simple, the process can in fact be very complexand requires a professional conveyancer. 

What does conveyancing involve?

We offer professional conveyancer services across Cranbourne, Frankston, Langwarrin and Carrum Downs and throughout Victoria. This generally includes:

  • Checking for encumbrances and/or restrictions on the property (for example, a covenant stating that the building must be no taller than one level)
  • Drafting legal documents – for example the contract of sale and Section 32 Statements and Contracts of Sale
  • Ensuring appropriate parties pay fees, charges and rates
  • Organising settlement and exchange of contracts

The extensive level of detail and volume of documentation that is needed to buy or sell a property can be overwhelming, which is why it is usually best to consult with a professional. Our solicitors assist in Frankston, Langwarrin, Cranbourne, Carrum Downs and around Victoria, providing cost-effective, comprehensive advice.

Conveyancer or lawyer?

Unlike conveyancers, Bayside Solicitors’ property lawyers can assist in your property transaction no matter what complication may arise. Employing a solicitor ensures not only that the person handling your conveyancing is experienced and knowledgeable, but also that you are protected as a consumer by the obligations of a solicitor under the Legal Profession Act 2004.

Developing a relationship with friendly, knowledgeable property lawyers also makes it easier later if you have any property – related legal issues, for example council disputes or any other legal issues.

Our family and divorce lawyers are also experienced in developing agreements related to the merging and separating of assets.

Although our small business, commercial, property, family and divorce lawyers are located central to Frankston, Langwarrin, Cranbourne and Carrum Downs, we provide services Victoria-wide.
