Cosmo’s Conveyancing Search

Cosmo would search everywhere in Melbourne to find the conveyancing firm which had just acknowledged his kind deed. Unfortunately, although it had only happened mere moments earlier, he could not remember the name of the suburb they operated in with their conveyancing services. With no working phone and no information to go off, he’d just have to try every conveyancing firm in Melbourne.

First, Cosmo decided that he would search for some conveyancing lawyers near Mentone, because he was pretty sure that was the suburb mentioned. As Cosmo the kobold walked the lonely streets of Melbourne’s suburbia, he considered how without money to make his tribe proud, he would never get to see his beloved children again. He had to do this for them, so that they could be proud that their father was a nice man. He was desperate – so desperate. And as he searched for conveyancing lawyers in Mentone, he got a sneaking suspicion that the man on the phone had instead mentioned something about conveyancing firms in the Collingwood area. Hanging his head, Cosmo began the trek toward Collingwood.

Evidently, the conveyancing firm had seen something kind within Cosmo. This was his big chance to change his life – to change the world. The truth was that he knew he’d been meant for more than sign spinning. Perhaps that was why he continually ate the boss’ lunch, expecting to get fired every day until it happened. Perhaps that was why he blew all the money he earned. Now he was free from the expectations on him to work hard in a minimum-wage job and bring the money back to his tribe. He would be one of the most positive people to walk into the conveyancing firm and find new meaning in life. This was a fresh start.

And so, with refound determination, Cosmo made his way to Richmond, sure that he would find the perfect conveyancing firm for him there.

Property Purchase Interviews

Hello and welcome to this wonderful exploration of all things property purchasing in Melbourne. This project came about after we interviewed two young adults about their greatest concerns as they adapt to this new stage of their life. The overwhelming response (from 100% of respondents) was that they don’t know enough about buying property. What does the process entail? What pitfalls need to be avoided? So, we decided to make a series exploring the house buying process, interviewing nine individuals about this exciting journey. Shall we get started? I say we shall.

Tim: Buying a house doesn’t happen overnight. For me it was a long process of deciding where I wanted to live, finding the perfect house, and then getting a conveyancing firm local to Richmond to help me finalise the legal side of my purchase. My advice would be to take it slow and be patient. The perfect house for you will come up eventually. Like a snake in the grass, you just have to pounce and take it before someone else does. Snakes pounce, right? Oh well, you get my point.

Riley: Honestly, I thought I’d never be buying a house. The market is kind of messed up at the moment. But after years of hard work and one 95-leg multi that I lucked out on, here I am preparing to own my dream home. As I type this from the office of a recommended conveyancer in Brighton, I can’t quite believe it. How lucky am I? Very lucky. Is there any hope of you other gen z kids ever owning a house? Probably not.

Bentleigh: Conveyancing lawyers are pretty easy to find in my area, so I made the mistake of going straight to them in the house buying process. It turns out that conveyancers should not be your first port of call. You only need conveyancers once you actually have a house you want to buy! Let that be a lesson to all you young ones out there. The first place you should go to is actually a real estate agency. That’s where all the houses are at!
