Me and my partner are buying a house in Holsworthy. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? On the day of competition we will need to deposit money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

I am the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Holsworthy. The Holsworthy property was put into my name in August.

Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this provision is principally there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Holsworthy.

You should not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.

Without fail every Holsworthy conveyancing transaction will have it’s own unique set of issues. Accordingly your property lawyer should be unwilling to accurately predict the length of time it will take to complete conveyancing in Holsworthy.
