When purchasing a property, you should be mindful of the additional costs that can be associated with this process. Not all of the list below will apply to everyone, but some potential charges to consider include:
– Lender’s fees
– Inspection costs
– Moving costs
– Estate agent fees
When purchasing, there are standard State and Local Government charges such as Stamp Duty, Registration fees and search and inspection fees.

Sometimes we incur additional costs such as non-local phones, bank charges, photocopying and fax charges. These are automatically tracked and noted on your file.
If these charges exceed our standard $35.00 per file rate we reserve the right to charge for them on an as used basis.
All fees and charges are presented and explained to ensure you have the whole story of the property being purchased.
We carry out a comprehensive list of property checks and searches, which are charged to you without markup ensuring you are only paying for what you get.
We believe every conveyance and every client is different. For this reason we charge a flat rate for the normal conveyancing attendances but will charge on a “User Pays” basis for additional attendances that are outside the normal requirements. Sometimes these costs are able to be recovered or negotiated with the other side.
