When we buy our house, we can’t really imagine leaving it. Firstly, you paid too much for it, secondly, it’s the physical proof of a major life achievement. It isn’t easy to become financially stable enough to buy a house these days, so once you actually go through with it, you develop an attachment to your property.
You want to spend the rest of your life in this house, settle down, have kids and watch them grow as their pitter patter echoes your hallways and then spend the rest of your days there.
Of course, things don’t always go the way we want them to and that’s a part of life’s unpredictability. Maybe the house no longer suits your needs, you have to relocate etc. So you have to depart with your house. The process of selling a house is by no means a simple one, you don’t just have to put a For Sale sign, there is a lot of intricate details and paperwork required to get it done and it is strongly recommended to get the right legal help and hire property conveyancers Brisbane to help you out with the entire process.
The entire process of conveyance, or transferring property ownership of your house requires a number of steps to take place. Firstly, you need to check the legal status of your property, meaning it is a leasehold or a freehold property. Then you need to get additional legal searches done like permits to get work done, flood or storm risks, land registry checks etc. You also have to mention other details like which fittings and fixtures in the house will be included in the actual sale itself. Your solicitor should handle the exchange of contracts and confirming the buyer’s deposit before the keys are finally changed.
