Choosing a Settlement AgentSat, 28 May 2016
Don’t automatically accept a solicitor or conveyancer recommended by the selling agent. A personal recommendation from an unbiased friend or work mate is a better way to find a reliable, competitively priced service. Alternatively, a quick google search will uncover a range of firms in your location.
Always check that any conveyancer you’re thinking of using is licensed with the appropriate body - usually the Department of Commerce in your state or territory. And have any quotes on fees confirmed in writing. Though remember, cheapest isn’t always best. You want someone who will return phone calls promptly and who knows one end of a sale contract from the other.
