Inner West Conveyancing Sydney is a division of D鈥橝rcy Sloman Peacock Lawyers (DSP) who have been in Balmain for over thirty years. The current principles of DSP whilst providing a hands on very personal service to their clients have realised that with changing times many clients do not need or require that constant personal touch. Some clients do not need to meet many times in face to face conferences and prefer to keep in touch these days by email.

Flat fee $1495 + GST + Disbursements

* Conditions Apply.

Further, contrary to what a lot of solicitors and conveyancers will tell you the vast majority of conveyancing transactions are straight forward with only a handful that are or become complex.

With this in mind DSP Lawyers have set up Inner West Conveyancers Sydney. Inner West Conveyancers Sydney are for the simple, straight forward sale and purchase of property. As such it is reflected in our price structure. To that end, Inner West Conveyancers do not handle conveyances where the sales price is over two (2) million dollars, or, where either the purchaser or vendor are based or are overseas for the duration of the conveyance.

The Big Difference

  • We are Solicitors
  • 30 years in the business
  • Provide personal touch
  • Reasonably priced with fixed costs for the service

Even the most simple conveyance can turn complex so the big difference you have when you come to Inner West Conveyancers Sydney is if something happens and your conveyance no longer is a simple conveyance, the conveyancers at Inner West Conveyancers have the luxury of calling on the experience of Vince D鈥橝rcy Chris Peacock at DSP Lawyers to take over the matter. Something that the low cost conveyancer cannot provide. This is your safeguard.

 


 

What is Conveyancing?

If you want to buy or sell a house, unit or vacant land you鈥檒l have to sign a contract. The legal work involved in preparing the sales contract, mortgage and other related documents, is called conveyancing. While you can do your own conveyancing, most people engage a licensed conveyancer or solicitor. This information explains what is involved with conveyancing.

Land and Property Information NSW is the main authority for NSW conveyancing laws. More information is available on the NSW Land and Property Information website.

Who can do conveyancing work?

Options for doing your conveyancing are:
路 using a licensed conveyancer
路 using a solicitor
路 doing it yourself. (we strongly recommend against this option)

Before you start organising your conveyancing, it鈥檚 important to do your homework first.

Using a conveyancer

In NSW, conveyancers must be licensed with NSW Fair Trading. Most conveyancers hold an unrestricted licence to do the full scope of conveyancing work for residential, commercial and rural property. Conveyancers are licensed to do legal work such as preparing documents, giving legal advice on contracts and explaining the implications. **However in the case of IEC the work is supervised by Solicitors not just conveyancers.

Using a solicitor

While conveyancers and solicitors are equally qualified to do conveyancing, solicitors can also give you legal advice about other matters (such as on the contract for sale and contract terms). Solicitors, like licensed conveyancers, must also have professional indemnity insurance for your protection.

Doing your own conveyancing

We are not discussing this as if you choose to take this option we do not want give any advice or seen to give any advice on this option except to quote the famous maxim below.

“A man who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client.”
