If you don’t have an agent we can help you select an agent. If you need a conveyancer, you are at the right spot. We are locally based licensed conveyancers in Melbourne, and limited to acting for sales of any property in Victoria, Australia.
Conveyancing Excellence has been handling conveyancing transactions for many years. Our firm has pioneered the use of digital conveyancing and leads the way in using technology to make the process easier to understand and more transparent. To discover what’s involved in selling from listing an agent to completing the sale read our Five Step Guide.
Once you have engaged the agent you need to retain us as your conveyancer. To get the ball rolling the following is required:
- Complete the Selling Questionnaire as well as you can and submit. If you don’t know the answer to any particular question don’t worry, simply leave it blank.
- Generally we require payment of upfront deposit of $395 by credit card, EFT or cheque to cover searches, certificates and preparation of the vendor’s statement. If you wish to pay by credit card we need the card number and the expiry date. We accept Visa and Mastercard. You can supply this by telephone or email.
- You need to advise us of any matters which affect the property. Please fax, post or email as quickly as possible the current invoices for the following:-
- Council Rates
- Water / Sewerage Rates
- Owners Corporation Fees & Minutes of last AGM & any Notices or letters received regarding future works or actions by the Owners Corporation. Note by law it is mandatory you have provide a section 151 Certificate at a cost of $150
- Lease / Tenancy Agreement (if applicable)

- Any other Notices affecting the property
- We will confirm our quote for all conveyancing charges which covers the scope of services outlined below and an estimate of out of pocket expenses plus gst. The deposit that is paid upfront will be credited and the balance payable upon settlement.

Director & Licensed Conveyancer (Licence No 000935L)
Thanks Matt for all your hard work! We have loved living in the house the past few weeks and are so thrilled it's finally settled! If it wasn't for your legal expertise I think the overall outcome may have been very different and we would probably have been house hunting again! I really appreciate all your time, effort and advice! Thanks again.Adrian & Mel - Purchasers
