Conveyancing & Settlement FAQs

The transfer of ownership of any property or real estate from one person to another is known as conveyancing. Conveyancing can be the outcome of a gift or a devise by Will, as well as the purchase or sale of a property. Easy Link Conveyancing’s duty is to guarantee that a title is delivered with little hassle and client peace of mind.

Prior to Settlement, Easy Link Conveyancing will modify the property’s rates and outgoings as of the Settlement Date.

By adjusting the rates, the Vendors will be required to pay all rates and taxes owed on the property up until the settlement date, and the Purchaser will begin to pay on that day. Even though certain rates may not become due until later, the majority of councils will demand payment of all rates for the current rating year at settlement.

The changes will take this into account. The vendor will be able to pay any arrears, outstanding interest on the rates and charges, as well as expenses related to the discharge of any mortgage or caveat, thanks to the modifications.

The Section 32 is a document that the vendor (the seller of the real estate) gives to the prospective buyer. Its name is derived from Section 32 of the Sale of Land Act, which mandates that a seller must disclose specific information to a buyer PRIOR TO the execution of a contract of sale.

A vendor cannot rely entirely on deposit release since a purchaser might always oppose to its release. If a purchaser is ready to release the deposit, the seller may do so by providing specifics of money due to reassure the purchaser that even if the deposit is released, the vendor can discharge all loans and pass over clear ownership at settlement.

A Section 27 Deposit Release Statement can be created and served to the purchaser, providing details of any mortgage and any caveat.

The deposit may be released to the vendor if the purchaser signs a release. If the purchaser does not protest within 28 days, the purchaser will be presumed to be satisfied with the particulars given.

Settlement is the formal process of transferring ownership of a property to another person during the course of a transaction. It is enabled by legal (conveyancer or attorney) and financial (banker/broker) representatives for both the buyer and seller.
