Hi all, my non lawyer conveyancer/settlement agent (WA) declared that he is related to my buyers agent. Does it matter..? Agent seems a genuine person and property we are looking a bit old needs renovation. Thanks in advance

Does it matter..?
Yes, a potential conflict of interest. What if something pops up with the property and it is something the buyer’s agent should have picked up or that they caused will the settlement agent tell you or down play it?
You should use a lawyer, a solicitor, to protect yourself and to get some legal advice as well as transferring title.
