Howdy! I'm Dan Smith and I live with my wonderful family in Perth. This is my legal blog which aims to look at every part of the legal system. I should point out that i'm not a lawyer myself. However, my good friend Stan has been representing people in court for many years. I find Stan's work fascinating and I love asking him questions. I have even done a bit of my own research into the legal system. I decided to pull everything together here so I could organise my thoughts while also providing useful info for others. Thanks for checking out my blog!
A few decades ago, property buyers had to walk to a conveyancer's office down the street for service provision. While this still happens, technology has made it possible for conveyancers to offer their services online. Therefore, you can easily buy a new property right from your living room, but only if you exercise due diligence and choose a licensed online conveyancing firm. Why do some people prefer online conveyancing services? Read on to find out.
Immediate Price Comparisons
You should choose a conveyancer based on your budget. For example, committing to a conveyancing process without a fixed quotation can considerably disrupt your budget. However, local conveyancers provide an estimate of their service rates at the beginning of a conveyancing exercise. Besides, it takes time to call and compare the pricing of different local-based conveyancing firms since property buyers have to handpick a few companies for analysis. However, you do not have to worry about delayed pricing in e-conveyancing services. The reason is that online conveyancing quotes are pre-determined and easy to compare. All you have to do is pick service providers whose quotes are within your budget for further scrutiny.
Buy Property Anywhere
Property developers and buyers are often advised to work with a conveyancer who understands property laws of a local area. For instance, if you find a house that meets your needs in Tasmania but you live in New Zealand, it is ideal to use a conveyancer in Tasmania. Unfortunately, this is not easy if you have to travel and meet a conveyancer in Tasmania because of time and money constraints. Online conveyancing eliminates this obstacle and allows clients to buy property anywhere they wish. For example, you just have to search for an online conveyancer who is conversant in Tasmanian property laws. The best part is that the cost of service does not change, which reduces the cost of owning a property.
The paper system which is used in conveyancing processes in Australia is more than 150 years old. Consequently, it is relatively insecure and tedious to use. For instance, some fraudsters have had enough time to decode the system and exploit its vulnerabilities or loopholes. However, e-conveyancing has beefed up the security of processes and procedures and made it difficult for fraudsters to forge documents. Also, communication between a conveyancer and their client is encrypted, which enhances the security and integrity of conveyancing transactions.Share
