A buyer offered me a lot less than I want due to property title issues. What do I do?

As stressful as it may be to receive an offer that’s much lower than what you’re asking for on your property, it’s a common issue. Just Conveyancing handles several cases like this and there are various steps you can take to manage these issues that are lowering your offers. Our team specialises in all varieties of property conveyancing in Melbourne and we’ll help you increase those offers and get you closer to your asking price. If you’re selling your property, there’s no better team of professionals to assist you, than the one here at Just Conveyancing.  

Liens

Our professionals can help you discover and release any liens that may be attached to your property. Your title insurance company can send a report that states if there are any mechanic liens, judgement liens, or tax liens. We can then help you follow the appropriate processes to get those liens released. We’ll assist you in contacting the lienholder and negotiating an agreement with them that ensures both parties are protected, the lienholder is paid, and the lien is released from your title.

Boundary Disputes

If your potential buyer has done their research on your title and a boundary dispute has come up, it could be the reason for their lowered offer. We can help you resolve any existing boundary disputes, no matter how severe or small these disputes may be. We will help you negotiate the dispute in a professional and protected way that ensures the process is handled smoothly. You can look into selling the portion of your land that your neighbour uses, or alternatively buying the portion of your neighbour’s land that you use. There is also the option to hire a surveyor or signing a quitclaim deed in order to settle the dispute.
