Not many people enjoy sorting out paperwork, and when it comes to buying real estate, there is a lot of it to deal with. This can prove to be highly stressful, especially if some important documents go missing, like the ‘Certificate of Title’, which demonstrates you’re the legal owner of your property.
Lost property Titles are one of the most common causes of long settlement delays. Before you can settle, your Settlement Agent would need to prepare an Application together with a Statutory Declaration to create and register a new Title with Landgate. It is a thorough and detailed process that can become a headache if you are not an experienced Conveyancer.
In the unfortunate event that you have lost the original Title to your property, we can take the issue into our own hands and organise a replacement Title for you when we act as your Settlement Agent. This means you do not have to deal with Landgate by yourself. Instead, you can leave it in our capable hands.
If you own land and are thinking about subdividing it so that you can sell, build on, or rent the different lots, we can help you prepare your Application to Landgate.
Have you misplaced your original property Title? No need to panic. We can deal with Landgate and get you a replacement in no time.
Change of Name
Need to change your name in your property Title? Let us take all the hassle away and handle the required paperwork for you.
In the event of a relative or friend passing away, if they owned or part-owned a property, their name would need to be removed from the property Title. In such a difficult time, we can help you sort out all the paperwork required to transfer the ownership of the property.
When a property is owned by two people, and they decide to go separate ways, a Court can make an ‘Order’ which allows one or more properties to be transferred from joint into sole names. Thus, we can help transfer a shared property into one person’s name with nominal stamp duty.
