What is Conveyancing?

If you're looking to buy or sell your home or property in Queensland, you're bound to have heard the term 'conveyancing' by now. Real estate conveyancing is an area of Property Law and is the legal process of buying and selling real estate.

Why do I need a Conveyancing Lawyer?

Conveyancing is an adversarial legal process; it's you versus everyone else involved in the transaction. If you make a mistake when you're buying or selling real estate and it can be costly, but get your property conveyancing done correctly from day one and you'll have a clear understanding and protection of all your rights in the transaction. 

In a world where conveyancing companies offer cut-price solutions, getting an experienced conveyancer to work on your behalf could end up being one of the most cost-effective real estate decisions you ever make. Additionally, if the transaction turns into a dispute, you will have the comfort of knowing that our litigation department is ready to enforce your rights with the skill that comes from years of conveyancing experience.

  • No obligation free quotes;
  • Conveyancing quotes are fixed fees, so there are no unexpected surprises;
  • Free review and comprehensive advice of REIQ/ADL Contracts including recommendations for any issues which we feel will safeguard our clients’ interests.

  • Ensuring client communication is a priority so that you are kept informed every step of the way by providing a friendly and supportive service, informing clients of their obligations at every stage, providing reminders for upcoming contract conditions and regularly keeping clients updated on the status of their transaction and when settlement is effected;
  • Ensuring we accommodate our clients as much as possible including depositing settlement proceeds into a client’s nominated account as soon as practicable following settlement and delivering keys to real estate agents;
  • Expertise in negotiating contract amendments and seeking extensions of time;
  • Expertise in liaising with financiers, banks and mortgage brokers to ensure your finance is ready to proceed on time;
  • Expertise in stamp duty legislation so we can ensure you receive any concessions you may be entitled to;
