Conveyancing & Leases
What is Conveyancing?
Conveyancing is a broad term dealing with the transferring of property. This includes buying and selling residential and commercial property, retail and commercial leases, retirement village contracts, and buying and selling businesses. We also deal with more complex contracts such as auction and off the plan contracts.
