    Hi all,

    My conveyancer doesn't seem very helpful and just wondering if we can change who the conveyancer is in the cooling off stagefor a NSW property.

    They are charging $2k and so far they haven't kept me up to date with pest and building or even receiving the contract.

    Can we change??

    Cheers,

    John

    Yes

    However why is the conveyancer getting your B&P? Every B&P I have heard of the buyer gets directly sent to them.

    Also you can ask the REA to send you a copy of the contract, again I have only ever known the contract going back to the purchaser first and then asking who the conveyancer/solicitor is (which then is sent to them).

    Conveyancer said they can organise the pest and building. We only received/signed the front page of the contract
