Buying & Selling your Home
Conveyancing is the legal term for the area of the law that looks after the transfer of ownership for both commercial and residential properties. Residential properties include vacant land, strata titles (e.g. town houses, units, etc.) and conventional homes.
In the ACT title to a property is generally 99 years Crown Leasehold as distinct from freehold in the other states. Although there are a number of similarities in the way conveyancing is carried out between the different jurisdictions there are still a number of subtle differences which should be brought to the attention of both buyers and sellers.
