Whether you are acquiring commercial property for business use, an investment property to create financial security, or buying a family home, it is very important to obtain good legal advice before committing yourself to a contract. Any mistake or oversight can lead to a very substantial loss in the future.

You will be surprised to find the conveyancing services at Berwicklegal fast, friendly and competitively priced or lowcostconveyancing. We will identify the legal issues, advise you of your legal rights, and conduct the purchase or sale on your behalf.

Whilst some conveyancing agents or property transfer agents may offer their services at what appears to be a cheaper price than lawyers this is often not the case when you receive the final bill, hence we will whenever possible give you a fixed price that in many cases will be a better price than those headline rates offered by non-lawyers. In addition they (non lawyers) do not have the benefit of a legal qualification and understanding of complex property law matters that a qualified lawyer can provide. Our lawyers have the necessary expertise and experience to ensure that your interests are adequately protected throughout the whole transaction. We endeavour to provide our conveyancing services at competitive rates and charge fixed fees for most transactions at a price that is very competitive with both lawyers and conveyancers.

Lawyer versus a licensed conveyancer?

There are in broad terms two kinds of conveyancers - lawyers and licensed conveyancers. Licensed conveyancers are non-lawyers who have been licensed to perform a part of the legal work associated with a real estate transaction, so long as it does not go beyond "conveyancing work" as defined in the Conveyancers Act 2006. There are also some conveyancers that have limited licences or restrictions where they cannot do all the work required in regards to “conveyancing work”. As a result if a legal dispute occurs all conveyancers are duty bound to refer a client to a qualified lawyer for further assistance i.e. whenever the matter goes beyond simple "conveyancing work", or involves issues too complex for the licensed conveyancer to handle that’s why they say or advertise they retain a lawyer for all legal work but this is often not the case. Unfortunately on some occasions they simple offer legal advice without referring the individual matter to a “their” lawyer for review or advice as each matter is usually factually different. The need for licensed conveyancers to refer clients to lawyers for complex matters and issues that take the matter beyond "conveyancing work" renders the licensed conveyancer an expensive "middle-man" when the total cost of the transaction is billed as there lawyer doesn’t work for free!. Accordingly a lawyer is the most practical solution as the only purported basis on which licensed conveyancer can attract the attention of clients and entice them away from lawyers is by offering comparable services for lower fee i.e. price. However, this is quite impossible as a licensed conveyancer can never offer the same level of service, or range of complementary services, as those offered by lawyers and in many cases such as here at Berwicklegal our fees are equal to or lower than many conveyancing firms.

In addition we do not pay “referral fees”, “kickbacks”, “secret commissions” or “soft bribes” to real estate agents or financiers or any other third party as this cost of a the "referral payments" is a cost that is inevitably passed on to you the consumer, be it either in higher conveyancing costs or lower levels of service. We work exclusively for you the client, not the agent or any third party and we only work in the clients best interests.

If you are selling a house

You will need to have a Vendor’s Statement prepared. A Vendor’s Statement must be provided to purchasers before the contract is signed and contains information about the property as is required by Section 32 Sale of Land Act. If you provide false or misleading information in a Vendor’s Statement about a property you are selling then you may be guilty of a criminal offence or liable to pay monetary penalties. We recommend that you engage a qualified lawyer to prepare your Vendor’s Statement to ensure that your obligations under the Sale of Land Act are fully complied with. At Berwicklegal we will provide a no sale no cost Section 32 Vendor Statements otherwise referred to as a free Section 32 or free Section 32 Vendor Statement (conditions apply).

If you are buying a house

Prior to signing up or attending an auction it is important to be sure you know what you are buying and be aware of your rights and obligations under the proposed Contract of Sale, We recommend a Pre-Purchase or Pre-Auction Review by a lawyer before signing up or attending an auction even if you ultimately do not proceed with the purchase to avoid being surprised by obligations such as unexpected outgoings or planning restrictions that you may not be aware of.
