Property Conveyancing

Buying property can be the most important financial decision you will make.

Real estate transactions always result in contractual relationships with others.  An agreement to buy or sell real estate can be the beginning of wealth creation. This is why it is important that the matter is handled by a Law firm with years of experience.

We will ensure you understand your legal rights and obligations before you commit yourself. You need to be sure that your affairs are in the hands of a professional, whose experience and expertise will protect you.

At Antippa Lawyers, we do not just fill in the papers. What matters is an investigation of the title. If you are buying a property, it is a big expenditure and it is worthwhile knowing everything about the property.

There are a lot of things which we investigate before a settlement. A Certificate of Title :

  • does not say when the house was built or even if there is a house or factory on the title.
  • does not state what building permits were granted and if buildings are safe.
  • does not state what pipes and wires run under or overhead and it is important to know what they are especially if you intend on building.
  • does not state if there are levels of restrictions and maintenance requirements by Heritage authorities or if the building or area is listed in the National register, the State register or the Council register.

Restrictions are also placed on properties by overlays, planning zones and road widening proposals at the property or in the area. As your solicitor, we will check all of these and ensure they meet your requirements. These are only a few items that a Solicitor will check and a Conveyancer may miss.

Our services extend to:

  • Purchases and Sales of Property
  • Sale of Contracts and Section 32
  • Property transfers/Gifts between family members
  • Subdivisions
  • Off the Plan Sale contracts

Property Development

Split the property into two or more lots and capital gains multiply.  We can assist you from the beginning stages of sub-dividing to the land, to construction and pre-sale contracts and see it all the way through to the settlement process. Talk to us further about how we can help you achieve this.
