How does conveyancing in Victoria differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Victoria contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because builders in Victoria typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Victoria or who has acted in the same development.
My brother has encouraged me to use his lawyers for conveyancing in Victoria. Do I follow his guidance?

I am soon to exchange buying a house in Victoria but as a consequence of damage from the recent storms I have agreed reparation from the current proprietors of £2k taking the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however the lender will not permit this. Should they have been approached?
Your conveyancing practitioner being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel is duty bound to disclose to the bank of any changes to the purchase figure. In the event that you prohibit your solicitor to disclose the price change to your lender then they would have no choice but to disinstructing themselves from representing you and the mortgage company.
