The conveyancing process is more complex than you might think


Property changes hands in New Zealand all the time. Both in the business world and among private homeowners, conveyancing happens for any number of reasons – companies and people move, they buy and sell property for investment purposes and some fortunate beneficiaries receive property in their loved ones’ wills.

In the conveyancing process, there’s usually a great deal of red tape that gets in the way.

Ideally, the process of handing a piece of property from one entity to another would be quick and painless, but that’s rarely the case in reality. There’s usually a great deal of red tape that gets in the way. Even smart, capable people tend to need legal assistance with hacking through it all.

According to the New Zealand Law Society, there’s a lot more to conveyancing than simply filling out a bit of paperwork and moving on with your life. There are often fees to be paid and inspections to complete before conveyancing can take place.

Given this reality, it is a good idea to begin the process with legal counsel by your side. A good advisor can help you make crucial decisions about how to successfully transfer properties without hitting any legal snags.

Cutting down on wasted time

We all lead busy lives, and the last thing any of us want is to waste a lot of time working out the logistical details of a property transfer. Unfortunately, though, conveyancing is often an extremely time-consuming process. There’s a lot of back-and-forth dialogue that must take place between the two parties involved, their lawyers and various regulatory organisations.

The best way to overcome this difficulty is to expedite communication. If everyone is kept in the loop with updates on the transaction, there will be fewer breakdowns in the process, and conveyancing will be easier for everyone involved.
