We have 20 years experience in all types of conveyancing transactions whether you are a first home buyer wanting residential conveyancing or one of the largest property developers in the area or a real estate agent.
We act for all of the above regularly and focus on:
Free Phone Advice
Our conveyancing clerks can point out obvious mistakes or answer all your questions about the contract free of charge. However, a conveyancing clerk is not qualified to draft contracts and therefore properly discuss all the possible special conditions or other silent issues such as complex lease or GST issues.
This is particularly important for non-standard contracts for which you may wish to pay an extra $330 per hour (or part thereof) plus GST for a proper legal advice from a solicitor if you wish to avoid greater potential risk or extra cost later because amendments to the contract and / or leases are required.
It’s your choice how much risk you wish to take. Either way, there are no hidden extras provided you do not create extra work later by breaching the contract or needing contract amendments or being un-contactable etc.
|No Hidden Extras
For example, we do not charge for items in outlays that are not really outlays to hide further professional fees.This presumes your contract is finalised and no further amendments are required later.
|Quick and Quality service
We talk to our customers in plain language, keeping them fully informed of progress at all times and totally aware of what their costs and options are.
|No Meetings Needed
Our modern approach avoids the need for you to visit our offices although of course you are always welcome. You will not have to take time to attend meetings to receive advice or sign documents. We keep you fully updated by phone, fax or email, whichever you prefer.

* We cannot give a set figure for purchase outlays until you call our office because these depend upon which council the property is located in (each council has a different price for its searches), whether you are obtaining finance and whether you want any of the less important searches carried out. As each solicitor has a slightly different view of what are standard and what are less important searches, the attached Buyer Searches List has been prepared by our insurer as part of a Conveyancing Protocol that all Queensland solicitors are meant to follow.
