When you change your name – either due to marriage, divorce, or via deed poll – it makes sense to update your details on the Certificate of Title to make future transactions easier.
Our team of experienced conveyancers can change your name quickly and efficiently. First, we’ll interview all parties involved to ensure we understand your unique circumstances. Then, we’ll:
Conduct relevant title searches and prepare an application to change the title
Certify evidence of your name change (such as birth and marriage certificates)
Advise government authorities of the change
Lodge the documentation directly with Landgate – or if you have a mortgage on the property
We’ll attend settlement with your bank
Throughout the process, we’ll keep in close contact with you, your real estate agent, and the seller’s settlement agent. We’ll also liaise with your lending institution – so no detail slips through the cracks.
When you work with Residential Settlements, all initial documentation will be completed within 48 hours. We’ll be ready to complete the transfer as soon as all documentation is signed, and your bank is ready to settle (if applicable).
