Our Story

50 years ago, a couple of old-school gentlemen began a law practice. Established in 1972 by Martin Colwell, the firm was taken over ten years later by Martin’s brother, David, and rebranded as David Colwell Lawyers.

Today, Colwell Conveyancing Group focuses solely on the conveyancing arm of the business and we’re combining old-school values with the latest conveyancing technology! You shouldn’t have to put your life on hold just because you’re buying, selling or transferring a property. You can sign your contract from anywhere in the world, right there on your device!

How long does the conveyancing process typically take?

We handle all our clients on an individual basis, taking into account a variety of factors as we provide our services. With this in mind, you can expect the conveyancing process to take anywhere from our standard settlement period of 30 days to 3 years for off-the-plan contracts. While we always aim to minimise delays for our clients, property conveyancing needs to be handled thoroughly and with care. 

What is the role of a conveyancer in the buying or selling process?

A conveyancer will handle several roles, including identity checks, bringing together and assessing all relevant documentation, drafting and negotiating contracts and avoiding any potential legal issues on the way. The aim of the conveyance is always to ensure that the title of the property is transferred between the buyer and seller with no problems and fewer delays. 

Can I handle the conveyancing process myself, or do I need to hire a professional?

While it may be possible, in some cases, for someone with no legal or property background to carry out their own conveyancing, this can lead to serious problems further down the line. The conveyancing process is highly complex and extremely specialised. If the process runs into any legal difficulties - which is very common with something as complex and high-value as a property transaction - you will need expertise and understanding to smooth this over. Expert conveyancers have the skill and understanding required to do this with ease.
