There is no doubt that thousands of families make a living out of farming activities. Each year there are hundreds of farm lands that are being bought and sold by farmers for various purposes. In this article we will try and find out how having a good conveyancer can help those farmers who are desirous of selling or buying farmlands. Conveyancing without any doubt is perhaps the most important activity that is needed for ensuring smooth transfer of farming or other real estate properties from one person to another. Whether there is a commercial intent built into such property buying or selling or not, it is virtually impossible to transfer properties without the active support and cooperation of farming communities.
Let us try and understand broadly what the main functions are of a conveyancing company or individual. We will also try and have a look at the various professionals whose roles are extremely important in the entire process of conveyancing. As mentioned above, the main role of conveyancers is to go through the various steps and formalities that are required per the law. Only when this is done will it be possible for the ownership to be actually recorded in the books of the relevant federal or local government authorities.
Since the entire function of conveyancing companies is very critical, customers always find it better to outsource the entire activity rather than having it done by them on their own. It would be virtually impossible to try and do all these functions individually without taking help from professionals. There are many professionals involved in the entire job. Especially when it is about selling farmlands, one needs to go into a lot of technical details failing which the buyers could end up buying the wrong property. Apart from the important role of property advocates and attorneys, the role of property valuers and appraisers is also very important. While the former look into the legal aspects of the property and ensure that everything is in order, the latter is about getting a fix on the fair market value of the property in question.
When it comes to farming land, a bit more care has to be taken before buying it. The valuers and even the attorneys should be able to find out more about the fertility of soil, the irrigation facilities available, and the average yield over the past few years, the distance from the nearest transport facilities and so on.
While there is no doubt that the roles of conveyancers are very important when it comes to choosing the right service provider, we are often at a loss. This is because there are literally scores of conveyancers out there in the market place. Hence when you are faced with a problem of plenty you may not know how exactly to choose the right conveyancer from amongst a crowd. The next point is our lack of knowledge as customers as to what conveyancing is all about. Unless we have a basic understanding about the important functions of a conveyancing company or individual, we will not be able to look out for the right service provider.
Hence, let us get started by understanding the role of a conveyancer. When a property is bought or sold there are a number of important processes and steps that have to be gone through. Each and every one of these processes has their own importance and is interlinked and interdependent. They also have legal ramifications and therefore have to be handled very carefully without any room for mistakes and errors. For example when a property is being sold it is important to ensure that it is property valued. Valuation is very important because it helps the buyers to get a correct idea about the fair market value of the property. Further, there are a number of other qualitative pieces of information from a valuers’ report that could be very useful for the buyers. The fixation of property tax payable and the stamp duty applicable are all important areas where valuation has an important role to play. Hence, without the right conveyancer to help you out this would become very difficult and almost impossible.
Further when a property is being bought, it is important to check on the legal status and legal standing of the same. This calls for examination of the property documents which is done by the real estate lawyers and attorneys. Hence, it is important to always choose conveyancers who have rich experience in valuation, legal examination, physical verification of the property and other such important matters. Experience in this field coupled with the capacity of offering all types of conveyancing under one roof are also points that should always be kept in mind while looking for these professionals.
