For most people, buying a property is a big decision and one of life’s more significant investments. Being fully aware of what is expected at each stage of the buying process is paramount to achieving a smooth transition into a new property.

At Village Green Conveyancing, we aim to remove any stressful elements from the buying process by delivering our services through years of experience and extensive knowledge of the New South Wales property market.

There are four main processes in buying a property and we can guide you with each process:
