Conveyancing (buying and selling property)

The most common type of property transaction most of us will do at some stage in our lives is a conveyance for either buying or selling a home or a business.

Nearly all titles to land in Australia are now electronic and transfers and other registrations are now conducted on an electronic platform known as PEXA (Property Exchange Australia). PEXA is owned by the four main banks and three State Governments and is a highly secure blockchain platform that requires all parties to sign off using a special key before any transaction can proceed.

At Ellison-Whyte Law we can assist you with all your conveyance needs including:

  • Contract review and pre-purchase advice
