Our Services

You’ve found your dream home. Let us help you secure it.

Buying property is a major decision, and usually something people don’t do very often. For us though, it is our day-to-day focus.

Get expert advice before you sign.

Glenferrie Conveyancing can review your proposed Contract and Vendor’s Statement (Section 32) for you before you sign the Contract.
A Pre-Signing Contract Review costs $190 plus GST, and we provide you with a written review of your proposed Contract and Vendor’s Statement noting:

  • Any Special Conditions in the proposed Contract that are oppressive to your interests.
  • Any issues identified in the Vendor’s Statement.

If you proceed to purchase the property, and Glenferrie Conveyancing completes the conveyancing for you, then the cost of your Pre-Signing Review is waived (i.e. it’s free).

Whether you are buying a piece of land, an existing home or off the plan, we have the experience to protect you and your investment. Before you sign on the dotted line, Glenferrie Conveyancing will ensure that you understand all of the risks so you can make the most informed choice possible. These risks include those involving title, zoning, easements, restrictive covenants, overlays including heritage, adverse possession, rates in arrears and the stamp duty implications related to the purchase.

We can also put you in touch with a mortgage broker if you need help with finance, or a real estate agent if you need help finding or negotiating the purchase terms of your dream home.

For buyers, our main deliverables are:

  • Reviewing your Contract of Sale
  • Nominating any additional or substitute purchasers (if required).
  • Drafting the Transfer of Land document and the Notice of Acquisition.
  • Preparing the State Revenue Office online Duties Form, used for the assessment of stamp duty.
  • Liaising with your bank or other home loan provider (as required).
  • Performing any necessary property information searches to update Council, Water Authority and Land Tax certificates. These are needed to correctly apportion these charges between the seller and the buyer at settlement.

Selling a property usually means an exciting new chapter in your life. But this chapter comes with a lot of lot of paper work!

  • Preparing the Contract of Sale, Vendor’s Statement (Section 32) and Deposit Statement (Section 27).

For clients who have lost a paper Certificate of Title, the main deliverables are:

  • Obtaining an Issue search.
  • Preparation of the Application for a New Certificate of Title in Place of One Lost or Destroyed.
  • Obtaining and preparation of the necessary Statutory Declarations and the Council rate notice.
  • Lodgement of the Application at Land Use Victoria.
