Property & Real Estate Conveyancing
It is often misconceived that sale and purchase agreement is a copy and paste type of work. Other than statutory contract, it is pertinent to note that every sale and purchase of property is different and requires certain legal writing to ensure all procedure to be complied properly before the complete conveyance of ownership from vendor to purchaser.
