TOP questions about Sunshine Coast conveyancing

When you hire a conveyancer, they will help you with the transfer of property ownership. This includes preparing a contract, settling a deal under current regulations, assisting with a bank loan, and helping arrange an inspection. Of course, at key stages, they are personally present with you.

Also, when it comes to Sunshine Coast, it is essential to understand the difference between a solicitor and a conveyancer. When we talk about Sunshine Coast property transfer, we often hear that solicitors are cheaper, but the specifics of Queensland are that only conveyancers can carry out conveyancing.

We understand this page may not contain all the questions you have about Sunshine Coast conveyancing, so you can call us on 1300 185 636. It is free and will help you stand on your feet. Of course, if you become our client, we will match you with the best conveyancing solicitor in one of our five offices in Brisbane.

At a basic level, a property lawyer in Sunshine Coast should have all the same qualities as any lawyer, namely, to be your translator of legal terms and protect you from making legal mistakes.

Our Sunshine Coast conveyancing solicitors’ team meets this criterion, like many others. But what if you want more? We consider ourselves the best conveyancers because our ultimate goal is to make your life better. This goes beyond the basic list of conveyancing services. The Sunshine Coast property market is one of Australia’s most dynamic markets and often requires a personal touch. We are ready to talk. This is what separates the cheap conveyancer from the best conveyancer.

Yes, we do. In addition to the main office in Woolloongabba, we have four offices in Cleveland, Gold Coast, and Sunnybank Hills. The key idea behind these offices is that our Sunshine Coast conveyancing solicitors can easily communicate with our clients in person. In addition to online communications, there is always the need for face-to-face meetings and a presence at the settlements. Currently, our network of conveyancing offices fully satisfies the needs of all clients outside of Brisbane.

There are no conveyancing solicitors in Sunshine Coast who will deny you if you don’t have a real estate agent. A property lawyer can act as a deposit holder for you. Real estate agents usually prepare a contract for a conveyancing settlement, but if you don’t have a contract, we will not charge you an additional fee for preparing it.

A cheap conveyancer in Sunshine Coast would charge a $500 conveyancing fee, while the most expensive Gold Coast conveyancing costs are around $1400 and higher. GM Law’s Sunshine Coast conveyancing prices start at $700. But please note that the real price of conveyancing in Queensland is broken down into many fees and the majority of them are government charges. We suggest, therefore, being very careful of those who give you a single price.

You can fill out our Quote and receive a PDF document with a list of all the conveyancing fees that are relevant today for Sunshine Coast. Even if you don’t become our client, you can use this calculator to simply get a list of what you will have to pay to the Queensland government when buying or selling a property.

This issue is not relevant to Sunshine Coast conveyancing, as, in Queensland, only licensed conveyancers can transfer property. You can read more about this in our article here.

Yes, you do. Not all conveyancers deal with Wills, but it is part of the GM Law Sunshine Coast Conveyancing Solicitors services. Here you can find out more about Wills & Estates.

This is unnecessary, as we can discuss all your conveyancing issues online. This is your decision. Most people have a preference to either discuss conveyancing online or to have a face-to-face meeting at our main office in Woolloongabba which is located in Brisbane’s CBD.

Brisbane conveyancing fees include:

  1. Verification of Identity
  2. GST
  3. Land Tax – Clearance Search
  4. Property searches (Department of Transport and Main Roads)
  5. Body Corporate Information
    Certificate & Insurance Certificate (Estimate only)
  6. Common Property Title

This period is common to all Australian states and ranges from 30 to 90 days. The process of conveyancing in Queensland is slightly different from other states in Australia. You can find out more about the stages of conveyancing here.

In general, yes, but conveyancing solicitors in Australia work with foreigners differently than with residents. If you are a non-resident, you need to have the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) approval.

Also, you may only be able to only buy property that is under construction. This is one of the measures to protect the domestic market. Here you can find out more information about conveyancing for foreigners, but pay attention that the conveyancing is slightly different for New Zealand residents.

No one is telling you no, but the need for an inspection is listed on the Queensland government website, so if you’re conveyancing in Brisbane, chances are you can’t transfer ownership without it. One way or another, the opposing party may require a pest inspection and you will have to do so.

From the Conveyancing Solicitors‘ point of view, it is very important to include the pest inspection point in the contract. Conveyancing in Sunshine Coast is arranged so that you sign a contract first, and a pest inspection can take place weeks, or even months, later. Therefore, it is important to prescribe this in the contract, otherwise, if insects are found in your future home, you may have problems terminating the contract.

You can do it and you will pay less for it. There are several scenarios for the exchange of property between relatives, but keep in mind that Queensland conveyancing has its specifics associated with transfer duty: even if you, as relatives, don’t pay each other money to buy or sell property, you still have to pay tax based on the market value of that property.

Sometimes the buyer can fail with the deposit payment because of a bank mistake, or the seller fails to evict the tenant, and all such issues are part of the Conveyancing Solicitor’s concerns. Technically, if you didn’t meet the terms of the contract, then the opposite party can request a penalty from you, prescribed in the contract. But as a rule, both parties are interested in closing the deal, so they are usually ready for negotiation. The best Sunshine Coast Conveyancing Solicitor is the person who helps you with these negotiations in such difficult situations.

You can simply send us a contract by email. Most of the convening happens online. Things like pest inspections or house key handovers require your presence, but in other respects, you can easily rely on online communication. Doing all the paperwork online is one of our conveyancing principles.

Yes, in Queensland, first-home buyers can avoid transfer duty if the price of the house is below $550,000. The key point of our Sunshine Coast conveyancing office is to keep track of such nuances.

No, you can buy real estate freely. Although the laws of Queensland differ from those of other states, there are no restrictions on citizens of other states.
