The Benefits of Using a Conveyancer Before You’ve Found a House
When searching for your dream home, your mind will be racing with questions and ideas. What suburb will I choose? Will I buy an apartment or a house? What colour scheme should I go for?
For many homebuyers, meeting with a conveyancer is the last thing on their mind!
Conveyancing is a mandatory process in all property transactions. However, it’s also a great way to take the stress out of buying property and to ensure that you don’t make any silly mistakes along the way.
Working with a conveyancer from the start of your property journey doesn’t cost extra, and comes with massive benefits.
A conveyancer will guide you through buying real estate
Remember, buying property doesn’t have to be stressful. You’re making the biggest purchase of your life, why have a bad experience doing so?
As conveyancers, we have a high level of legal expertise and deal with property law every day. Instead of wasting your time reading through legal jargon and potentially missing information, let the experts walk you through everything.
For example, did you know that legal requirements differ between contrasting property transactions? Auctions, contracts, and private sales all have different rules that your conveyancer will explain to you.
Once you decide on a property, a conveyancer will also talk you through any legislative matters that aren’t included in your contract.
Learn the steps you need to take before committing to a property
In a competitive property market, it’s easy to jump into a purchase, especially for first-home buyers who may have missed out on ideal properties in the past.
This could lead you to miss important information and to have to spend extra money to correct any mistakes.

We can also help you compare multiple properties and will point out any possible issues you may have missed. Again, we work with property daily and have seen all kinds of situations over the years.
Conveyancers know how to deal with estate agents and banks
You’ll liaise with a number of stakeholders over your property purchase journey, including estate agents and banks.
Conveyancers have a wealth of experience dealing with different property agents and banks, and can act as your representative during these conversations. We know what to say, and how to get the best outcome for our clients.
You can also ask us any questions that you’re nervous to ask an estate agent or bank directly.
Conveyancers make financing easy
Property is a huge investment. By meeting with a conveyancer at the beginning of your property journey, we can help you organise your budget and understand what your best financing option is.
Buying property involves a number of hidden costs, which we can make you aware of in order to create an accurate budget. This allows you to know exactly what you can afford when looking for your dream home and when negotiating the purchase price with your agent.
There are also several places where you can apply for a loan, such as a bank, credit union, mortage lender, or finance broker. Choosing the right loan for you requires shopping around and understanding the pros and cons of each option. We can also put you in touch with a mortgage broker to further help you find the loan that best suits your needs.
There are a number of benefits to engaging a conveyancer early on in your property journey, and it comes at no additional cost!
