I was bored during weekend so I borrowed a "DIY Conveyancing Kit" from my friend and had a good read. The kit is very informative on what to do as a purchaser. The kit suggests to use "Notary & Associates" to perform all sort of searches. One can fill up a "Property Information Inquiry Form" and tick what searches are needed and then fax to them. I noticed that there was a service fee of $80 on top. Why can't one just get search result from them straightaway? It seems so 1990's to me. Has anyone used "Notary & Associates" before? What are the alternatives? I am wondering if there is any online searches that anyone can just buy the searches online. Many online search company seems to open for conveyancers or solicitors. Thanks in advance.
