Fixed Price Conveyancing Cost – No Surprises
Our residential conveyancing fee is fixed at $795 plus GST irrespective of the sale price. We charge a bank fee of $95 plus GST but only if a financier is involved. If you are selling and have the certificate of title or if you are a “cash” purchaser, the bank fee is not applicable.
We guarantee you will be happy with our service but if you are shopping around on price make sure you avoid surprises and compare “apples for apples”. In addition to a full conveyancing service from a registered and highly experienced conveyancer, our conveyancing fee includes the cost of:
- File opening and administration costs;
- Office expenses (photocopies, faxes, printing, postage and telephone calls); and
- Verification of Identity (where you attend our office).
Discount Offer for Pre-Contract Advice and $100 Voucher
- If you would like us to review your contract before you sign or during the cooling-off period we charge from $390 plus GST for most contract reviews* but we will give you a $50 discount if you also engage us for conveyancing. *We will confirm our fee in writing as soon as we see your Contract.
- All of our conveyancing clients receive a $100 voucher to use for any other service we offer. Use the voucher towards the cost of new Wills or for any other legal service. If you can’t use the voucher feel free to give it to family or friends.
The vendor must serve a Form 1 and the purchaser should immediately insure the property as it is now at the risk of the purchaser. Find out more
Stamp Duty and Land Titles Office Fee
At settlement the purchaser will have to pay stamp duty and a Land Titles Office registration “transfer” fee, both of which are calculated according to the purchase price. Use our Government Fees Calculator* to work out the stamp duty and transfer fee on your purchase (*provided as a guide only and note that it does not cater for section 67 of the Stamp Duties Act or more complex transactions).

Our Conveyancing Service
We are here to save you time and worry and to represent your best interests. We will of course answer any concerns you may have and keep you informed at every stage.
Once a contract has been negotiated and the “cooling-off” period has expired, if necessary we will order searches on the property to check that clear title will be given at settlement. We also liase with your bank, agent and the other parties.
Settlement statements are prepared and provided to you prior to settlement so that you can see how settlement monies are applied and what adjustments have been made for rates, taxes and other property expenses.
After settlement we will contact you and the sales agent immediately so that keys can be exchanged. We will then contact the relevant Government departments and the local Council to notify them of the change in ownership.
- Print a copy of our Buying and Moving House Checklist;
- If there is more than one purchaser have you considered whether to buy as joint tenants or tenants in common?
- Check to see if you are entitled to any home owner government grants;
- Consider the effect of any special conditions that may be required or requested such as conditional on finance, sale of existing home, building inspection etc;
- Purchasers should immediately take out an insurance cover note to insure the building and fixtures once the seller accepts your offer;
- If the property has a swimming pool, new legislation will apply;
- Where appropriate arrange a building and/or pest inspection before expiry of the “cooling-off” period.
Whether you are a seller or a buyer it is wise to retain the services of a solicitor at an early stage. Disputes often arise in relation to the inclusion or exclusion of certain fixtures (ie: dishwashers, clothes dryers, TV antennas, and the like) in the contract and the interpretation of special conditions. If you receive or make an offer that contains or requires a special condition you should have legal advice readily available.
As a purchaser you may be entitled to a “cooling-off” period. If for any reason you decide against proceeding with a contract for the purchase of property you must serve the “cooling-off” notice within 2 working days after receiving the Vendor’s Statement (which is normally given to purchasers by agents when the contract is signed). A “cooling-off” period does not apply to purchases made at auctions or where the purchaser is a company.
