Conveyancing

Our Conveyancing Solicitors can assist with all types of residential and commercial conveyancing. Whether you are buying or selling a house, vacant land, unit, townhouse, shop, commercial property or industrial property we will ensure the process is as seamless as possible.

Acting for a Buyer

It is critical when buying a property that you do your due diligence and have the right people around to help you. We assist with the terms of contract and special conditions, ensure that the property is transferred to you free from any mortgages or other encumbrances, can assist you to understand if there may be any tax implications in relation to your sale or purchase and arrange for payment of stamp duty.

To ensure your interests are protected we undertake the following processes when acting for you as a buyer in a typical purchase conveyance:

  • Review the contract and advise you on the terms;
  • Note and advise you of key dates (such as finance approval, building and pest inspections);
  • Conducting a range of searches of the property and title;
  • Liaise with your bank to ensure that their requirements are met and that funds for your purchaser are available for settlement;
  • Arrange the payment of Queensland duty (transfer duty/stamp duty);
