I just acquired a property at auction in Melbourne. Conveyancing is necessary. What happens now?
Given that you have now legally bound yourself to purchase you now have to appoint a conveyancing practitioner quickly as you are facing a pending deadline in which to complete the transaction. An auction property should have a bespoke auction pack. This should include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold property the conveyancing pack may contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation specific to leasehold premises. You should give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. Do make sure that your finances are in order to complete on the on the contractual date .
My wife and I buying a victorian detached house in Melbourne. The intention is to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to see if these works are permitted?
Your conveyancer will review the deeds as conveyancing in Melbourne will on occasion identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of works or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Some works call for local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be prudent to check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

I am buying a new build house in Melbourne benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent told me not reveal to my solicitor about the side-deal as it may jeopardize my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
