Conveyancing & Settlements
Why should you use D’Angelo Legal?
The sale or purchase of residential property, commercial property and businesses is one of the most significant commercial transactions that people do in their lives. It is an exciting time, but also one of the most stressful.
Whether you are selling or buying an existing house, unit, apartment, vacant land, commercial property, factory, shop or retail premise or business, we can facilitate your settlement for you, making the process as easy and stress free as possible.
We offer the benefit of your settlement being supervised by a qualified legal practitioner who has extensive experience in contracts and conveyancing. This should offer you peace of mind, in the unlikely event that something should go wrong in the course of your matter.
In the unfortunate situation that a problem arises, through no fault of your own, the supervising solicitor is aware of the matter in detail should legal advice be required. This preliminary advice is often complimentary as part of the settlement fee.
We are often able to prevent problems from occurring by identifying potential problems before they become an issue – and this includes ensuring the contract is drafted correctly from the beginning. This can result in cost and time savings, not to mention peace of mind.
