Frequently Asked Questions

Conveyancing is a process that plays an essential role in the buying and selling of property. Professional conveyancers have a strong understanding of and experience with property law. This includes searching for properties and liaising with relevant parties such as real estate agents, other conveyancers, and any professionals who may be involved in the process. It extends to the drafting of contracts and generally making sure that the client is fulfilling all their legal obligations as the buyer or seller.

Property law is basically the collection of laws relating to property and individuals’ rights around property. The Australian law classifies property as a range of items, from houses, to chattel and personal goods, to intellectual property.

Conveyancing fees can start as low as $500 and go as high as $2,500. It does depend on what you require from your conveyancer, how complex your specific situation is, and obviously, the lawyer you choose. We offer upfront cost estimates on conveyancing and communicate with you if circumstances change where you may incur additional fees.
