Established Home Conveyancing for Purchasers

If you’re purchasing an established home, be it a stand-alone house, a unit, townhouse or apartment, you want to be confident your home conveyancer is going to:

  • read the contract of sale
  • conduct every relevant search
  • advise you of any red flags before you put pen to paper

Tick Box Conveyancing’s pre-purchase contract advice will give you a thorough, plain-English breakdown of the contract of sale for the property you are hoping to purchase.

Our advice will shine a light on any special conditions in the contract and will tell you about any covenants or easements on the title and how they might affect what you can or can’t do with the property.

Common things to look out for in residential purchases include:
  • unfair special conditions and default clauses
  • correct completion of the particulars of sale
  • finance condition
  • settlement terms
  • vacant possession v subject to lease
  • outgoings including land tax
  • special levies
  • orders
  • building permits, final approvals, and warranty insurance
  • measurements
  • owners corporation
  • title encumbrances
  • zoning
  • works in surround

In the process of negotiating for the property, Tick Box can represent you in seeking alterations to the proposed contract or any of the conditions contained within it.

If you are successful in purchasing the property, Tick Box will ensure you are prepared for settlement with clear communication ahead of all the major milestones leading up to and including settlement day.

House and Land Conveyancing
for Purchasers

House and land packages are attractive to first-home owners looking to get into a property big enough for the present and the future.

Purchasing a house and land package is an exciting opportunity for homeowners to get into the house of their dreams, but they also come with an element of risk.

An experienced conveyancer can help you better understand the nuances of purchasing a property with a building you can’t feel, touch or see, to unpack the deal you are getting into and the contract you are signing.

Tick Box Conveyancing’s pre-purchase advice will help you understand the obligations you will be signing up for by purchasing a house and land package in any particular development and ensure you are across any special conditions you will be burdened by when your new home is being built during the term of the contract.

Once purchased, our experienced team will stay in constant contact with the vendor to ensure you remain updated about the progress of construction, to ensure all will be in readiness when settlement falls due so it goes off without a hitch.

Established Home Conveyancing for Sellers (Vendors)

If you are selling an established home, you want to ensure your contract of sale is watertight.

Tick Box Conveyancing is the conveyancer of choice for real estate agents across Melbourne when it comes to preparing contracts of sale that put the vendor in the best possible position, whilst also fulfilling all legal obligations and disclosure requirements.

We work with our clients to prepare contracts and section 32 statements that will result in as few questions or negotiations as possible and help to facilitate a quicker sales process.

Each contract is built with the vendor’s specific needs in mind. After all, selling your home or investment is not something you want a cookie-cutter solution for.

The common things to be aware of for vendors trying to sell a property when it comes to the home conveyancing process include:
  • an obligation to fulfil disclosure obligations under section 32 of the Sale of Land Act
  • preparation of a contract of sale
Tick Box takes instructions directly from vendors or their duly appointed attorney.


Our quick turnover time never comes at the cost of thoroughness, which makes us a favourite amongst some of Melbourne’s biggest real estate agents wanting to take advantage of any off-market opportunities to close a quick sale.

Whether you are a vendor looking to sell your established home or a real estate agent looking to partner with a conveyancer you can rely on for reliable and foolproof contracts, Tick Box Conveyancing can be of service to you.
