Buying a home or property is an exciting time! A home buying solicitor like those at ALA Law can assist you to buy your home, be it your first home, subsequent or investment property. We understand that making the decision to buy property, and invest in the property market, is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your life.

After you have decided to start looking for the perfect house or apartment, there are several things that you should think about which go beyond how much you can afford to spend or where you want to buy.

Are you going to be purchasing the property at auction or by private treaty?

It is important to be aware of the provisions that apply to ‘cooling-off’ periods and whether the Contract is binding on you straight away or whether you have some time to liaise with your solicitor or conveyancer to seek advice on the terms of the Contract and, where necessary, request changes.

What inspections, if any, should you be ordering?

It is a standard term of the NSW Contract for Sale that you take any property or land that you purchase ‘as you find it’. This means that you need to ensure that you have as much information as possible about the structure and condition of the property and is why we recommend having a building and pest inspection carried out on the property. We will take away the stress of organising this from you and will provide you with our comments on the inspection reports once they are received.

How will you be financing the purchase?

It is well known that most people will approach a bank or other lending institution to borrow the money that is required to finalise the purchase. On top of the purchase price that has been agreed to, you will also need to consider the additional expenses which will be payable on the purchase, particularly the payment of stamp duty. A home buying solicitor at ALA Law can assist you with calculating the amount of stamp duty that will be payable on your purchase and can also discuss with you any possible exemptions from stamp duty that you might be eligible for, such as the First Home Owner’s Grant.

Do I need a Home Buying Solicitor or a Conveyancer?

While some people choose to use a conveyancer to handle the paperwork involved when purchasing a home or property, it may be best to work with a home buying solicitor. A property purchase solicitor can handle all of the same paperwork and details as a conveyancer, but has a greater understanding of the law. A home buying solicitor can offer more thorough advice and provide the best assistance and guidance through more complex property sales.

The team at ALA Law are both solicitors and conveyancers – so rest assured you’ll be getting the best help with your home or property purchase!
