We had a fantastic experience with Open House Conveyancing especially being first time home buyers. Dennis and Rachael helped us through the process step by step and explained everything in detail. They were always very prompt to respond even after business hours. We would recommend OHC to anyone who is looking for an affordable yet very effective and smooth service.
Dennis was supportive and helpful regarding the sale of my property. He was available and happily answered any questions or concerns I had regarding the sale. Highly recommend Dennis and OHC.
It was seamless and easy using Open House Conveyancing. Definitely would use them again. Thanks Rachael and Dennis.

Ashfield is an old town, with a long history. Before the arrival of the British, the area now known as Ashfield was inhabited by the Wangal people.
After the arrival of the first fleet in 1788, the city became urbanised and grew in popularity, due to its proximity to Parramatta and Sydney CBD. The first land grant in the area was made to Rev Richard Johnson in 1793 and all land had been granted by 1810.
By 1855, Ashfield had about 70 houses and 200 residents. However, the opening of the Sydney-Parramatta railway line that year, with Ashfield as one of its six original stations, led to a population boom. By 1890, more than 11,000 people lived in the suburb. By 2018, the population had exploded to 127,000 people, with most living in units.
