No you should speak to your conveyancer as early as possible. You should, preferably, speak to your conveyancer before you look for a property or before you decide to put your property on the market when selling. Never sign anything before consulting your conveyancer. If you are asked to sign a contract request a copy of the contract first so that your conveyancer can go through the contract with you before you sign. If you do this you will understand what you are signing. There is no such thing as a standard contract.
