When you buy or sell a property there are a number of important legal steps involved during the conveyancing process. We may be able to help – here are some of the things that need to be done:
|Check the sale and purchase agreement before you sign to make sure it is fair and sensible.|
|Search the property title and confirm its ownership. This shows mortgages on the property and any other restrictions that may apply.|
|Check with the relevant government authorities to ensure that the property is not affected by any government notices or projects, e.g. road widening, construction of MRT lines, etc|
|Check that the owner is not a bankrupt|
|Check all conditions - such as finance arrangements and builder's inspection - are met before the sale.|
|Check the mortgage document is in order, if you are buying, or that it has been discharged if you are selling.|
|Prepare and send out legal documents such as the transfer of ownership.|
|Prepare an account for you and advise you on the amount you have to pay to complete your purchase.|
