When my husband and I first started looking for a new home, neither of us had the first clue about everything that would be involved in the process. We were excited to embark on our new life together, but really didn’t understand all of the intricacies – especially when it came to the law in Australia. At first, we balked at the idea of hiring a conveyancing Brisbane solicitor – after all, it meant spending more money. After talking it over with friends and family, though, we decided that it would be the best course of action. As it happened, we are thrilled that we did and would recommend conveyancing solicitors Brisbane to absolutely anyone who is buying a new home.
Leave The Deadlines To The Professionals – business law solicitors
In addition to buying a new home, my husband and I were both terribly busy with work and other obligations. The idea of trying to juggle all of that – and trying to keep the various deadlines involved in the conveyancing process straight – seemed totally unrealistic. Fortunately, the conveyancing solicitor that we hired was more than capable of keeping all of our affairs in order. We never had to worry about late filings or any other problems; while we went about our daily business, the solicitor did the work. He kept us in the loop, but handled everything masterfully at the same time.
Deciphering Contracts –
Neither my husband or myself is, by any means, familiar with reading contracts. A huge part of the conveyancing process in Australia revolves around these legal documents, and had we been on our own we could have very easily tripped up and made a major mistake. Our conveyancing solicitor made sure that the contracts we worked with were fair and kept our requirements in mind. Rather than having to sift through pages upon pages of contracts ourselves, an experienced professional stepped in and with the knowledge of exactly what to look for – and how to spot when something was awry. That reassurance was well worth the price.
Priceless Advice –
Throughout the home buying process, we frequently turned to our conveyancing solicitor with questions. He was always more than happy to respond, and he made a point of giving us extra advice as needed. For instance, my husband and I briefly considered skipping out on the home inspections and pest inspections. The solicitor made us aware of all of the reasons behind why we should have these inspections done. In the end, we chose to do that; a few small problems were discovered, and the seller remedied them. Had we not followed the solicitor’s advice, we’d have been stuck with making those repairs ourselves. All in all, hiring a conveyancing solicitor was a truly great decision.
