What is property settlement?
Property settlement is the legal process of transferring property from one owner to another. This usually occurs after a property sale, separation, or inheritance and involves finalising all of the financial transactions and legal documentation.
How long does a property settlement take?
The duration of a property settlement process can vary based on property type, financial arrangements, and legal complexities. But in general, it will take between 30 to 90 days from the date when the contract is signed.
What documents are needed for property settlement?
The key documents for a property settlement can include the contract of sale, mortgage documents, proof of identity, transfer of land forms, and, in the case of a divorce settlement, any relevant court orders.
Do I need a lawyer to handle a property settlement?
Because of the legal and financial complexities involved in property settlements, it's highly recommended that you engage an experienced property lawyer. Without a lawyer, you risk overlooking your legal obligations, coming across financial pitfalls, or experiencing delays for not having the right paperwork.
What is the difference between conveyancing and property settlement?
Conveyancing is a part of the broader property settlement process. It specifically refers to transferring the legal title of property from one person to another, whereas property settlement includes the entire process of finalising the entire property transaction.
