     Craig Hemer (Licensed Conveyancer 000860L)     Craig Hemer - Owner & Director

My dream is to operate the most efficient & informative conveyancing practice in Melbourne so that our clients are fully aware of any risks associated with property transfers.

Conveyancing in Melbourne is the legal process that transfers property from one party to another, however our approach is designed to provide much more. 

Whilst most people engage a conveyancer or solicitor after they either buy or sell, our aim is to coach & educate our clients before they actively enter the market.

Our coaching goes far beyond the legal process covering documentation review and practical hints on how to avoid common traps thatmake the process more stressful than it should be. 

Our approach provides peace of mind and often saves our clients time and money.

News

Do you know what you are buying?

Aug 29, 2017 | General | craig

The contract will have a section title GOODS SOLD WITH THE LAND.

This is normally listed as "All fixed floor coverings, window furnishings and electric light fittings".

You should consider whether this covers everything that you think is being sold with the property and if not, have the agent add a list to the contract.

A couple of examples that might help are.....

If the property has a swimming pool you should ask if the pool cleaning equipment is included in the sale.

 

If there is a wall mounted television you need to ask if the television is included in the sale, if not, ask whether the wall brackets are being removed. If the wall brackets are being removed you should ask who is covering the cost of repairing and painting the wall.

MAKE SURE THAT THE CONTRACT CLEARLY LISTS ANY INCLUSIONS OR EXCLUSIONS not covered by 'all fixed floor coverings, window furnishings and electric light fittings"
