At SDA Conveyancing it is our recommendation that any interested purchaser of property, not sign any Contract of Sale or legal documentation until such time as we have had an opportunity to review these documents on your behalf.

In this way, you purchase with confidence, knowing that the documents have been reviewed by an experienced specialist. Any potential concerns or queries that we may have OR advice that you may require,  are brought to your attention BEFORE you make what is usually a person’s biggest lifetime commitment.

We will also bring to your attention some of the many misconceptions that purchaser’s may have, concerning what are vendor obligations and what are our recommendations to you as a purchaser – prior to your making any legal commitment.

At SDA Conveyancing we have a low fixed fee for any review of a Contract of Sale and Section 32 Vendor’s Statement.

Our aim for each and every purchaser of property, is that the transaction be a simple straight forward process, which our clients find, has been conducted in a professional and efficient manner.
