The Shire Conveyancer are Licensed Certified Practising Conveyancers who specialise in Conveyancing.
A CPC is a ‘Certified Practising Conveyancer’. To become a CPC a conveyancer must have completed the educational and practical training requirements to hold a conveyancer’s licence and be a member of the Australian Institute of Conveyancers NSW Division. (AIC)
Being a member of the AIC means that the conveyancer must abide by the rules and codes of conduct of the AIC, they must also complete the annual continuing education requirements that are required to renew a conveyancer’s licence each year. The AIC provides the facility by which members can complete their continuing education requirements.
The AIC promotes the view that members should complete more than the compulsory requirements set down by the Office of Fair Trading and that continuing education is of utmost importance to the continuing skill and expertise that is needed to remain abreast of the ever changing nature of the conveyancing profession. At The Shire Conveyancer our staff regularly attend seminars and webinars to ensure we are aware of the latest changes in legislation so we can expertly serve our clients.
A CPC firm must contribute to a policy of Professional indemnity Insurance, which the AIC holds in its name, as protection for all clients for any errors or omissions that may inadvertently be made by the conveyancer. At The Shire Conveyancer we also hold additional cyber insurance for your peace of mind with electronic transactions and settlements. Consumers can instruct a CPC knowing that they are adequately covered in the unlikely event that a mistake is made.
CPCs have the support and backing of the only professional body representing the conveyancing profession in NSW, the Australian Institute of Conveyancers NSW Division. The AIC, in representing conveyancers, is focused on one aspect of law, conveyancing, and as a member all CPCs are provided with up to date information and the support needed to act competently and professionally in that one aspect of law. Take advantage of the professional service and expertise offered to you by your CPC knowing that you are in the safe hands of an expert conveyancer.
When selling property you will require a contract prepared. A CPC will obtain all the mandatory documents that need to be attached to a contract eg. a council zoning certificate, a copy of the title and other title documents, deposited or strata plan, sewer diagram and any other documents that may be required for your particular transaction.
Your CPC will draft any special clauses that may be required for your contract and that may be required to disclose particular matters for your sale.
When buying a property a CPC will explain the contract to you, organise any property inspections, discuss your financial position and negotiate with the seller’s conveyancer on any special needs such as extended settlement period, amount of deposit or possession amongst other things. Liaison with your lender on finance approval is also an important function.
Once contracts have been exchanged, a CPC will take all the necessary steps to settle the matter and arrange payout or funding of mortgages.
At all times a CPC will advise you on various options and act to protect your interests.
