Residential Property

We understand that the sale or purchase of your home may be the largest financial decision that you may ever make and it can be a very stressful time. It is our role to ensure a smooth and stress-free transaction. Always seek accountable advice from registered lawyer’s office such as KM Law.

The modern property market is relentless, with offers increasingly being made and accepted within days of listing. You can’t afford to use a lawyer who takes their time. We keenly understand this at KM Law, and our responsiveness and results earn us referrals from client to client.

Just because we’re quick, doesn’t mean we sacrifice quality or cost. Our standard residential property sale or purchase packages are fixed-fee, and we are among the most thorough and highly-regarded property legal advisers around.

Not sure how to proceed?

KM Law will help you understand every relevant aspect of residential property transfer. We will guide you through the specific sales process (e.g., tender, auction or negotiated agreement). You will be made aware of the associated costs of buying and selling. You will be advised on necessary or sensible inspections and reports (e.g., Toxicology Reports / ‘P’ tests, Building Reports, LIM, Council Files). We will discuss and arrange any special conditions to be included in the sale and purchase agreement. Ultimately, when it comes to the conveyancing process, KM Law will serve as your guide to avoid any potential pitfalls.

Due diligence

Due diligence is the act of looking into all the legal details to find any current or potential issues for you, our client. It’s crucial that an experienced, qualified and accountable person look over the relevant documents before you proceed with a property sale or purchase. This is another reason why KM Law are an excellent choice for conveyancing. With so many years of experience evaluating documents like LIMs, Building Reports and Council Files, KM Law are highly perceptive, efficient, and thorough. You will be advised on any problems, risks or liabilities, which can often save you financial ruin in the future.
