Purchasing A Property

The "need to know" procedures, checks, searches and fees

Regardless of whether it is a residence or an investment, the purchase of a property will be one of the most important decisions that most people make in their lives.

By engaging the services of Conveyancing Queensland, you will be partnering with our dedicated team who will guide you through every step of the purchasing process.


Whether your individual purchasing case is straight forward, or involves complex issues, Conveyancing Queensland will ensure total compliance with statutory rules and contract conditions.  We will prepare and submit all necessary documentation and attend to payment of fees and charges to all relevant bodies.

Checks and Searches

We undertake all essential searches plus further checks and searches depending upon your specific concerns and your intended purpose for the property.

Fees and Charges

The costs associated with purchasing a property fall into three categories: Conveyancing (legal) Fees, Government Charges and Additional Costs.  These have been outline in more detail below.

Flat Rate Fees

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.

Government Charges

When purchasing, there are standard State and Local Government charges such as Stamp Duty, Registration fees and search and inspection fees.

Additional Costs

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
– Insurance
– Moving costs
– Estate agent fees

Search Fees

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.

Other Disbursements

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.
