CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP
Transfers between family and other relatives is a minefield, and Stamp Duty considerations are a factor too. We understand and can explain.
We are able to attend to all components of the conveyance as required from applying for the relevant title and property searches, preparation of transfer documentation, coordination with the Estate Agents, Lenders, Conveyancers, Solicitors and other Statutory Authorities.
Applies to all Contracts signed by a purchaser and by signing the Contract the Purchaser is deemed to have fully read and understood the Contract together with making all necessary and complete enquiries to the relevant authorities prior to signing. It is not mandatory for a Vendor to provide all certificates relevant to a purchaser. Sometimes the Purchaser must rely on information contained within the Section 32 Vendors Statement. Rest assured Knox Legal, incorporating Lane Amazon Conveyancing will obtain all certificates required to thoroughly check the property you are buying.
The Vendor Statement will not disclose the following:
Whether the property is subject to any structural defects or problems such as leaky roof, termites, broken appliances such as heating, alarm etc
Any development proposals for the surrounding area
Whether or not the land is subject to any contamination or pollutants
Details of any final inspections or permits which have NOT been obtained (i.e. illegal structures).
A Section 32 Vendor Statement can be a bit daunting to most people. If you are not sure of what is contained in the Section 32 Vendor Statement you have been given, let Knox Legal, incorporating Lane Amazon Conveyancing review it for you. Knox Legal, incorporating Lane Amazon Conveyancing does this at no charge to our clients. No matter how many properties you look at, we are more than happy to review a Section 32 Vendor Statement for you.

Before signing any contract the old rule of “BUYER BEWARE” cannot be stressed enough. Be sure you have checked everything out with your future property or request a condition in the Contract. Some of these checks include:
Get a building inspection/pest report.
Make sure all the appliances are working and all the fixtures and fittings are in good condition. It is a good idea to write these down.
Measure the property boundaries as per the planning diagram attached to the Section 32 Vendor Statement.
Make sure the property complies with all the local building regulations.
If in doubt, contact us and we can point you in the right direction BEFORE you sign a contract.
