Conveyancing is the process of transferring ownership of a parcel of land from one person to another. It is a legal process that is performed by a legal conveyancer. In a property transaction there is a buyer and a seller and each party should have their own conveyancer. Because we are talking here about transferring land, I'll use the term land conveyancer here.
It's never too soon to find your personal property conveyancer
You will need to choose your legal conveyancer before choosing your block. You won't pay for any services until your land has been settled, so there's no reason not to get in early. Once chosen, they will be the ones who take care of your needs, making sure that all is as it should be with the contract. They are kind of like your guardian angel, protecting you during the land purchase process. They’ll let you know if there is something in the contract that you might need to give extra consideration to and they’ll always be on to anything that doesn’t seem quite right. A conveyancer takes the worry from you, leaving you to focus on the fun part.
It costs nothing to get started with your conveyancer. You only pay a fee upon settlement. If you wait, you could find yourself under stress if you have to secure your favourite property in a hurry!
A Certificate of Title is a legal document that proves you are the owner of your property. Once you have paid for the land in full at settlement, it will pass into your hands and you will be free to begin the building process. Your little piece of heaven is now finally yours!
FINDING YOUR CONVEYANCER

As long as your conveyancer has a licence to work in the state you're in they have everything they need to process any property transaction from any location.
