Buying and Selling Properties
For most people buying or selling a property is one of the most significant financial decisions they will make in their lives. We deal with a broad range of residential, retirement, aged care, deceased estates, commercial and industrial sales and purchases. We look after all sales and purchases, whether it is existing property or off the plan. Our clients are local and overseas, home buyers and investors. We act for individual vendors and purchasers as well as property developers, joint venturers, related parties, superannuation and trust entities and deceased estates.
At Boon Legal we are with you every step of the conveyancing process. We take the worry and hassle out of buying or selling any property.
We look after all aspects of your sale or purchase. We deal with real estate agents, the other party, your mortgagee and all the relevant government agencies to finalise your sale or purchase. We can lodge all the necessary documents and applications, including, Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) approval, stamp duty assessment with the State Revenue Office, registration of your title with the Titles Office, registration of mortgages, easements and caveats.
We advise on and prepare contracts of sale and Sections 32, licence agreements and a range of ancillary documents that may be required such as powers of attorney, mortgages, loans, caveats and licences.
We advise our clients on the legal implications and obligations of a purchase or sale. We make sure our clients understand what they are buying and the legal implications of property ownership if there is more than one person. This is very important as people may not understand the effect of covenants or easements on a property or that if they hold property as joint tenants with others the property cannot be left under their will.
We know that even though this may be the biggest single financial transaction people are sensitive about legal costs. We provide our clients with a fixed price for conveyancing.
We also prepare a range of documents to ensure that, where necessary, parties document their property purchases and arrangements. When people buy property together they rarely turn their mind to what happens if things go wrong or one of the parties wants to sell or end the arrangement. We assist parties to negotiate terms and conditions and prepare the necessary agreements.
Whether it is family members, friends or people in a genuine domestic relationship when buying property parties should have an agreement in place specifying the ownership, who pays for what and most importantly what will happen in the event of a dispute or sale of the property.
We advise and prepare documents for property transfers between spouses and related parties.
We also advise on and prepare deeds of family arrangements between family members to deal with the many different agreements.
Boon Legal is a member of PEXA and is ready for electronic conveyancing.
