A typical Conveyancing transaction involves two major landmarks, the exchange of contracts whereby equitable title passes to the purchaser) and completion (whereby legal title passes).
Deciding to buy property is a significant decision and often life-changing. Getting the right professional advice is crucial.
At McKenzie Lawyers our aim is not to simply provide our client with some standard Conveyancing service as some firms may offer but rather to go that extra step and at the same time provide you the peace of mind that you are obtaining a ‘proper title’ to the property.
We recently acted for the purchaser of a $19 million Sydney CBD Commercial building and over 250 purchasers and vendors of residential property including many first home buyers over the last 12 months.
So that you have a better understanding of the Purchasing process there are three stages that you should be aware of.

By now you have agreed on the price to sell your property. Our lawyers will now prepare the final draft of the sales contract and liase with the selling agent and the purchaser’s solicitor with respect to any amendments. Once we have your approval, we will arrange for you to sign the contract. Upon receipt of the Purchaser’s signed contract and deposit we will attend to exchange.
If there is a mortgage on title our lawyers will arrange for the discharge authority to be sent to you so your outgoing mortgagee can prepare the discharge of mortgage.
Now that you are settled in to your new home or have acquired other property have you considered making a will? Or do you require a power of attorney?
