What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring the ownership (the rights, title and interest) of Real Estate Property from one legal entity to another. A conveyancer is required for both sides of a real estate transaction – buying and selling

At Eckermanns, we have the knowledge, systems and expertise that you’ll need as you prepare for the official transfer of your new place into your own name. We deal with Residential, Commercial, Leasing, Subdivisions, Family transfers, Deceased Estates and more. We keep you updated throughout the journey from the start until finish, liaising with all parties to ensure that everything happens as planned.

What is a Form 1?

In South Australia, it is a legal requirement (under Section 7 of the Land and Business (Sale and Conveyancing) Act 1994) when selling a property to disclose certain particulars relating to the purchaser’s land. This disclosure is called a Vendor’s Statement or Form 1.

Serving a Form 1 to a purchaser will activate the two clear business day cooling-off period when it is possible for purchaser to change their mind and “cool-off” on the contract in writing.

When buying at auction where there is no cooling off period. The Form 1 is required to be available for viewing for at least three working days prior to the day of the auction at the office of the real estate agency conducting the sale. The Form 1 must also be on display for 30 minutes prior to the start of the auction. It is a lengthy document and we recommend you ask your conveyancer to review the Form 1 for you.
