First Home Buyer

You’ve saved hard, foregone luxuries and delayed holidays to be a first home buyer. The keys to your new home are just weeks away. One final step is the conveyancing to ensure the legal transfer of the property to you. It’s vital you get this process right.

As a first home buyer, you may be overwhelmed with that list of things you need to do. That’s understandable, it can seem confusing with a range of legal terms that may be all new to you.

You need a conveyancer who will take the time to explain the process. It is important that you know your legal responsibilities and understands what you are signing. Also, you must understand the ramifications of getting it wrong.  Just because you are a first home buyer doesn’t give you an excuse to cause a time delay. Your Seller has plans and obligations and will also rely on completing on the scheduled settlement day.

The worst case scenario is that your actions may cause the contract to fall over.

The good news is with careful planning and a flow of timely communication, most of these pitfalls can be avoided.
