Frequently Asked Questions

Specifically for the Greater Brisbane Region
  • What is conveyancing?

    Conveyancing is the process of transferring real property between people. This could be done as a purchase, sale or transfer without a Contract.

  • Should I see a lawyer before or after signing a Contract?

    We recommend you see a lawyer before you sign the Contract. That way you can be advised of what the Contract will mean for you during the conveyance, what special conditions you should insert in the Contract, and anything you should do before you sign the Contract.

  • Can I complete my paperwork for the conveyance online?

    Some Property Law Firms will allow you to complete a majority of your paperwork for the conveyance online. There will be some forms for the Office of State Revenue or Land Titles Registry that you will still need to complete in hardcopy. In some cases however it may be possible to complete all your paperwork online if you are also completing settlement by an electronic settlement platform.

  • Do I need a building and pest inspection?

    If you are purchasing a building as part of your transaction then you should seriously consider obtaining a building and pest inspection. You will use a licenced building inspector for the inspection and the inspector will tell you if there are costly issues with the property that you may want to have the seller rectify before settlement.

  • Do I need to attend settlement?

    No. Your conveyancer, lawyer or their agent will attend settlement on your behalf.

  • What is an electronic settlement?

    An electronic settlement uses a program, such as PEXA or Sympli, to transfer money and lodge transfer documents at settlement. It makes the process much smoother with transfer documents being lodged and funds being transferred immediately after settlement.

  • What is a paper settlement?

    A paper settlement requires paper transfer documents to be provided at settlement and exchanged for physical cheques. Your bank, lawyer and the other parties representatives will attend settlement in person where a paper settlement is required. Transfer documents will be lodged with the titles registry and cheques will be banked in the days after settlement.

  • What does it mean to satisfy conditions?

    When you satisfy a condition it means that you no longer need the contract to be subject to that condition, that you are relinquishing all your rights under that condition, and that you are satisfied that the purpose of the condition has been completed.

  • Do I need to do a pre-settlement inspection?

    It is recommended that you conduct a pre-settlement inspection of the property, even if the property is vacant land. This is because if something changes with the property, or its condition, and you still proceed to settlement then you will have to accept the property in that condition once settlement occurs. Settlement will lock you in to owning the property, so it is always important to make sure you undertake all investigations you need before settlement.

  • Are there additional costs for conveyancing on top of my quote?

    Depending on how the Law Firm quotes their fees you may find the following costs have not been included:

    • Search costs for rates, water and body corporate searches
    • Settlement costs
    • Verification of Identity costs
    • Additional costs if certain circumstances happen on your file such as condition extensions, file termination and changes to the contract.

    In many cases these additional fees will be detailed in the client costs agreement. Make sure to always ask what is included, and what fees apply for the above matters if they have not been included in the quote.

  • Do I have to order searches on the property?

    Lawyers will always order a title search on the property if you are purchasing or selling property. The purchaser will also need to order other searches so adjustments can be calculated at settlement such as the rates, water, land tax and body corporate searches. If these searches are not ordered by the purchaser then they may end up having to pay the sellers portion of these costs after settlement. A plan search is also ordered by the purchaser to make sure the lot they are purchasing is in the location they have inspected it at.

  • What additional searches do you recommend for Brisbane?

    As Brisbane is a very populous city which is always growing it would be best to order a Transport and Main Roads Search when purchasing in Brisbane. This search will tell you if there are any plans for the Department of Transport and Main Roads to resume any part of the property and build roads or rail through it. You should also consider obtaining a Flood Search for low lying property to see if the property has a history of flooding and a Building Records Search for built on properties to make sure they are council approved.

  • Should I lodge a priority notice on the title?

    A priority notice prevents dealings other than those required to register your interest in the property from being registered on title before settlement. This will protect your interest in the property and make sure you can receive title to the property after settlement.

  • Is title insurance worth it?

    Like all other insurance, title insurance protects you from matters you cannot foresee affecting you after settlement. In most conveyancing transactions unless you spend a lot of money on searches and investigations you will not find out everything about the property. Title insurance will protect you from any unnecessary costs in the future that may impact your use and enjoyment of the property for less than the cost of the searches and investigations should you choose to undertake them.

  • When do I pay legal fees?

    Each Law Firm is different however most will take a part payment of your fee once a file is created then take the rest of the fees at settlement.

  • What does ‘unconditional' mean?

    The term ‘unconditional' is used to say that your contract is no longer subject to finance, building and pest or other ‘subject to the purchaser's satisfaction' clauses.

  • What are settlement adjustments?

    Settlement adjustments adjust for rates, water, body corporate and other costs on the property to make sure the purchaser and seller pay only what is fairly theirs at settlement. You will also find price reductions, bank cheque fees and other costs will also be included in the settlement adjustments.

  • I am a first home buyer, what do I need to know?

    Firstly, you should speak to your finance broker or lawyer to confirm what ‘First Home Owner' grants and concessions are available to you.

    Secondly, make sure you get a valuation of the property you are intending to buy from the Real Estate Agent so you understand what the property is truly worth.

    Thirdly, if you need finance to purchase then apply for ‘pre-approval' and see if you are likely to be able to get the funds to purchase the property.

    Finally, once you have picked a property then book in for a Contract Review with a lawyer so they can advise you on what should go into the Contract and how best to protect your rights.

  • Can I purchase property in Queensland when I am interstate?

    Yes, you can. In Australia, you can freely own property anywhere in Australia regardless of what State you are living in for whatever purpose as long as you are an Australian Citizen or Resident.

  • Can I do my own conveyancing?

    It is possible to do your own cheap conveyancing but strongly not recommended. The law changes constantly and your requirements and obligations under the Contract also change. It is always best to take the stress out of conveyancing by hiring a lawyer to assist you with your conveyance as it will mean you will not be put at risk if you do not know what to do during any part of the conveyance.

  • Why is there a difference in price between buying and selling?

    There is more work required on a purchaser file then there is a seller. For example, the purchaser must draw up transfer documents, complete a stamp duty transaction and conduct searches. All of which is not required on a seller file.

  • What is the cooling off period for?

    The cooling off period allows a purchaser to terminate the contract for any reason whatsoever. This is to prevent purchasers from buying a property they cannot fund or that is not suitable for them because they signed a contract on a whim. The seller will be able to claim 0.25% of the purchase price from the buyer if they choose to terminate under this period.

  • What is transfer duty?

    Transfer duty, otherwise known as stamp duty, is a tax charged by the Office of State Revenue on all properties that are brought in Queensland. Transfer duty rates will vary depending on the purchase price and why you are purchasing the property.

  • What are Titles Registry Lodgement fees?

    The Titles Registry charge a fee in order to process the change of the title into the purchasers name. This fee will be payable on any transaction by the purchaser at settlement and is known as the Titles Registry Lodgement Fee. These fees will vary depending on the purchase price of the property.

Conveyancing Brisbane - Experts in Property Conveyancing Services

Buying or selling property, whether it's a residential property or commercial, is likely to be one of the biggest transactions you’ll ever make. It can also be one of the most stressful processes especially if you do not have legal expertise. There are a lot of processes involved in property transactions and things can quickly become overwhelming if you’re not prepared. That's why it’s important to involve a conveyancer who is experienced, reliable, and has your best interests at heart. And that’s where LEAD Conveyancing Brisbane comes in. We are experts in all aspects of property conveyancing in Brisbane, QLD, and will work hard to make sure the process is as smooth and stress-free as possible for you.

What is Conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring ownership of a property from one person to another. It involves preparing and reviewing documents, conducting searches, liaising with other parties involved in the sale or purchase, and making sure that all the required legal steps are carried out correctly. It also involves ensuring that there are no outstanding debts or encumbrances on the property.

What does the conveyancing process involve?

The conveyancing process will differ slightly depending on whether you are buying or selling a property, but there are some key steps that are always involved, such as:

  • Reviewing the contract of sale
  • Organising building and pest inspections
  • Applying for council approvals (if necessary)
  • Liaising with the lender and real estate agent
  • Coordinating settlement
  • Attending the settlement and exchanging keys

How long does a conveyance take?

The length of time it takes to complete a conveyance will depend on a number of factors, such as the type of property being bought or sold, the complexity of the property transaction, and whether there are any delays with searches or approvals. In general, however, most residential property conveyances in Queensland are conducted within a 30-day period. Commercial conveyancing services, on the other hand, can take a bit longer.

What is eConveyancing?

Econveyancing is an alternative approach to conveyancing that makes use of internet technology. First introduced as a voluntary option in 2003, it allows for the instruments and documents required in property conveyancing to undergo preparation, signing, settlement, and lodging online using the ELN (Electronic Lodgement Network). It is a faster, easier, and more efficient method and currently accounts for more than 70% of conveyancing transactions. The Queensland government has been considering a transition to mandatory econvenyancing. At LEAD Conveyancing we have already embraced the process to offer our clients a quicker and more streamlined conveyancing service.

Property Conveyancing Services

The type of conveyancing services you need will depend on your individual circumstances. For example, if you are buying a property you will need to engage the services of a buyer’s conveyancer. If you are selling a property, you will need to engage the services of a seller’s conveyancer. For buyers: As a buyer, your conveyancer will:

  • Review the contract of sale to make sure that it is in your best interests and that you understand all the terms and conditions
  • Conduct searches on the property to check for any outstanding debts or encumbrances
  • Arrange for building and pest inspections to be carried out
  • Liaise with the lender and real estate agent
  • Coordinate settlement
  • Attend settlement and exchange keys

For sellers:

As a seller, your conveyancer will:

  • Help you to prepare the necessary legal documents, including the contract of sale
  • Liaise with the buyer’s conveyancer to ensure that all the required steps are carried out and that the transfer of ownership is completed correctly
  • Coordinate settlement
  • Attend settlement and exchange keys

For buyers and sellers:

If you are buying and selling property at the same time, you will need to engage the services of both a buyer’s conveyancer and a seller’s conveyancer. This is because each party has different legal obligations and responsibilities. Your conveyancing solicitors will work together to coordinate the settlement of both properties, which often happens on the same day. They will also exchange keys with each other at settlement.

What Does a Conveyancer Do?

A conveyancer's role is to help to facilitate the sale or purchase of a property, whether it's a residential property. They will be able to help you with the preparation or review of the contract of sale, conduct property searches to check for any outstanding debts or encumbrances, arrange for building and pest inspections to be carried out, and help with settlement and transfer.

When do you need a conveyancer?

You will need to engage the services of a conveyancer in property transactions such as:

  • Buying a property
  • Selling a property
  • Both buying and selling a property
  • Title transfer

Conveyancing Solicitors Brisbane: Choosing a Good Property Conveyancer

Choosing property conveyancing solicitors should never be done on a whim. You want to settle on a professional real estate lawyer that resonates with your needs, is efficient, maintains proper communication, and keeps you updated throughout the process.

What makes a good property conveyancer?

A good property conveyancer has the requisite knowledge, experience, and accreditations to carry out property transactions. Some of the things you should look out for in a good property conveyancer include:

  • A current Practising Certificate from the Queensland Law Society
  • Years of experience in conveyancing and knowledge of the Queensland property law
  • An excellent track record and positive feedback from clients

In addition to the above qualities, you should also be able to strike a rapport with your conveyancer and maintain good communication throughout the whole process.

What should I look for when finding legal help with conveyancing?

Other than the basics of a good conveyancer, there are some things you should look out for when finding legal help with conveyancing transactions. These include:

  • Fixed-fee pricing: Many conveyancing solicitors will charge a flat fee, which can help you budget for the cost of the service.
  • No hidden costs: Be sure to ask about all potential costs upfront so that there are no surprises later on.

Why should I choose a licensed conveyancer?

Other benefits of working with a licensed conveyancer include:

  • They are bound by a strict code of conduct
  • They have to carry insurance
  • They have to complete ongoing professional development
  • They are subject to disciplinary action if they breach the rules
  • They have to maintain trust accounts

Cost of Conveyancing Services in Brisbane, Queensland

Conveyancing fees in Brisbane can vary depending on the complexity of the transaction and the size of the property. However, as a general guide, you can expect to pay between $850 – $950 as fixed legal fees and $350 - $500 as search fees when buying a property in Brisbane. The cost may vary between conveyancers depending on whether they offer a fixed fee and the type of property. However, most will offer free quotes so you'll be able to know the exact cost beforehand.

What do conveyancing costs include?

Conveyancing costs usually include the following:

  • Search fees: these are paid to the local council or water authority and cover the cost of property searches.
  • Stamp duty & transfer duty: this is a government tax that is payable on the purchase of most properties in Queensland.
  • Valuation fees: if you are taking out a loan, the bank will require a valuation of the property to be carried out.
  • Settlement agent fees: these are paid to the company that attends settlement on your behalf and finalizes the transfer of ownership.

What is transfer duty?

Transfer duty, also known as stamp duty, is a tax that is payable on the purchase of most properties in Queensland. The amount of duty you will need to pay depends on the purchase price of the property and your personal circumstances. For example, if you are a first home buyer purchasing a property for $550,000 or less, you may be eligible for a discount on the stamp duty. You can use the Queensland Government’s duty calculator to estimate the amount of duty you will need to pay.

What is a paper settlement?

A paper settlement is when the transfer of ownership is completed without the need for a physical meeting. This can be done if both the buyer and the seller agree to the terms of the sale and sign the necessary documents electronically. The advantage of a paper settlement is that it can be completed quickly and without the need to take time off work or make other arrangements. However, it can be more difficult to resolve any issues that may arise, as there is no face-to-face meeting. If you are considering a paper settlement, it is important to ensure that you have a good understanding of the process and that you are comfortable with it. You should also seek legal advice to ensure that all the necessary documents are in order.

What are settlement adjustments?

Settlement adjustments are fees and charges that are payable at settlement. These can include council and water rates, land tax, and stamp duty. It is important to be aware of these charges as they can add a significant amount to the total cost of buying a property. Your conveyancing solicitors can advise you on the expected settlement adjustments prior to settlement.

When do I pay legal fees?

You will usually need to pay your conveyancer’s legal fees at settlement. However, some firms may require payment upfront or offer a payment plan. Your conveyancer should provide you with an estimate of their fees prior to commencing work on your matter. This will give you an indication of the total cost of the process and the expected payment plan.

Why LEAD Conveyancing Brisbane?

When you buy or sell a property, conveyancing is the process you need to transfer the title ownership from one person to another. To get this done, you have three (3) options.

  • You can D-I-Y.
  • You can get the services of a conveyancer. OR,
  • You can hire a professional property lawyer or solicitor.

In most cases, properties involved are in the six-figure range which means it’s a huge investment for an individual. Yes, you can do it yourself but do you have the time to dedicate to the process? Do you also have the expertise to ensure you won’t be missing deadlines and requirements and end up paying sums of money in penalties? On the other hand, you can hire a cheap conveyancer. But do take note that they only have the license to perform the process but not as a legal representation. Your best option is the third one – a property lawyer. Property lawyers specifically specialise in (from the word itself) – properties. They can review and draft contracts and you can be sure you are legally covered. At the end of the day, it’s your 6-figure investment that’s on the line.

LEAD Conveyancing Brisbane is our dedicated team for Brisbane and Queensland properties. They have the professional license to act on your behalf as the Buyer or the Seller and can protect your interest even if the situation gets complicated. Most regular conveyancers cannot go that far. They can only perform the process and that’s it. When things go bad, you’ll want to have a property lawyer by your side.

Our Brisbane Conveyancing Services

Not all law firms and lawyers are the same.

Some big law firms have family lawyers, litigation lawyers, etc. This is why you’ll be surprised that when you get a quote from them, it will be around the 25-hundred dollar mark. Most lawyers also charge by the hour or depending on how many times you spend on a call with them.

So when you need a lawyer to do conveyancing, find a property lawyer. Property lawyers can go beyond just processing your title transfer. They can provide advice on the contract, draw up a contract, and amend to provide proper wording on your documents. Just like your trusted utility provider, you want to have a go-to firm for all your needs.

At LEAD, our services vary and we represent our clients depending on the following scenarios:

  • Buying a property.
  • Selling a property.
  • Performing a Title Transfer

When you’re buying a property, we make sure we protect your interest as the Buyer and scrutinise the documents to uncover any risk on your part. When you’re the Seller, we structure your contract in such a way that we tilt the documents in your favour. When you need a straightforward title transfer, we will represent both parties. Our team of property lawyers are ready to take on these jobs and you’re sure to get professional legal assistance throughout the process at a fixed fee. It is our customers’ conveyancing experience that we are after. We make sure we get the job done properly and clearly.

How we provide Cheap Conveyancing in Brisbane

Imagine you need some electrical work done in your small 200 square metre property. Will you get an electrician? Or an electrical engineer?

Exactly. You wouldn’t want to hire someone overqualified because that will be overkill and will cost you too much. On the other hand, you don’t want to get someone who just knows how to do the job just to get the cheapest price out there. You would want someone with a fair and reasonable price but at the same time can deliver quality work and has the license and expertise to get the job done. Ideally, reputable lawyers specialising in property law are what you should be looking for.

LEAD Conveyancing is just that. We can provide our services at surprisingly competitive prices because we formed our team by getting only the talent that we need. We mainly focus on property law and only cater to residential properties. That way, we can focus and specialise. Zoom in on a specific skill and be the best in it!

Why do you need Conveyancing Solicitors in Brisbane?

With the technology of today and the number of online resources available, you might think that you can do the conveyancing yourself. Although that is technically doable, it is not advisable as it comes with many potential pitfalls you need to watch out for.

With that, you are left with the questions – Do I get a best conveyancer? Why do I need a conveyancing solicitor? What’s the difference?

Yes, it’s true – property solicitors are usually more expensive than conveyancers. It can be a difference of about a couple hundred dollars. That is because they are qualified and licensed property lawyers and they can offer a full range of legal services. Conveyancers are also specialised in property but can’t deal with legal issues. When there are issues in the documents related (but not limited) to boundaries, clauses, special conditions, and sometimes fraud issues, you don’t want to get stuck with just a conveyancer. If the situation will require and force you to get an added service of a property lawyer, you’ll end up spending so much more than what you should have in the first place.

To put it simply, when you get a conveyancing solicitor, you are making yourself (and your property) covered in all aspects including legal situations.

In simpler words, you are buying peace of mind.

About Brisbane City

Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland and is also Australia’s popular tourist destination.

It currently has a growing reputation as a global investment destination supported by a sophisticated modern economy, cultural diversity, and world-class industry capabilities.

Brisbane is sunny almost all year round and has some of the best weather in Australia. While summer can have a temperature of 30 degrees Celsius on most days, winter will rarely go below 20 degrees. Spring and autumn will have you enjoy mild warm days that are pretty much perfect for anyone. Like most of Australia, Brisbane embraces multiculturalism and there are great opportunities for education and employment in a wide range of industries. The cost of living in Brisbane is not cheap just like in other capital cities. However, it’s still nothing compared to Australia’s two biggest cities – conveyancing Melbourne and Sydney.

Buying a Property in Brisbane

If you are planning to buy in Brisbane, Brisbane offers a huge and diverse market for every property investor. If you are considering an investment property in one of Australia’s capital cities, here are a couple of reasons why you should consider Brisbane. On property investment, due to Construction Lawyers Brisbane, it has historically displayed strong population growth and economic performance that has driven attractive returns for most property investors. Properties in the city have also achieved excellent long-term capital growth over the past few decades. As with property rental return, Brisbane property continues to manifest strong rental yields, despite plummeting interest rates. Investment property yields in Brisbane have maintained a consistent one point higher percentage over Sydney and Melbourne. Also, a good to know information is the average house price in Brisbane. The median property value in this city is around the $500,000 figure based on Australian Property Prices 2020.

Although Brisbane is regarded as the 4th most expensive capital city in Australia, there are still suburbs in Brisbane where you can get a median house price under $450,000. Ellen Grove, which is Brisbane’s cheapest suburb, can let you buy a house and will only set you back less than $300,000. The suburb is approximately 20 kilometres south-west of the CBD. The northernmost suburb of Brisbane is Bald Hills, and their median price is $442,500. The closest suburb to Brisbane on the list is Rocklea. It is just 9 kilometres from the CBD and their median house price is only $405,000. If you are looking for the most affordable units, Bracken Ridge and Gordon Park, both have medians of $320,000 and they are on top of the list for units. Coming in not too far behind them are Fortitude Valley and Clayfield with median prices of $331,000 and $347,000 respectively. For property software you can see more in the top pages here.

Property Selling in Brisbane

What about selling? The best time to sell in Brisbane is in spring. Real estate agents use great timing when selling a property as it can influence the decision of a property owner. Several factors come into play – the ability of a seller to secure a great price for their property or to attract multiple interested parties to submit an offer. Those can hinge on the time of the year they choose to sell and spring is widely regarded as the perfect time of the year. Spring in Brisbane has this energising and attractive “look and feel”. When the gardens start to look colourful, the flowers start to bloom, and the weather just hovers around 24 degrees Celsius, this attracts buyers onto the streets and into open houses. On the opposite, Brisbane summer has close to 100% humidity and 30+ degrees Celsius, so people won’t brave the searing hot sun during this time of the year. There are also less public holidays during spring in Brisbane. When people pack up and head out of town for a long weekend, the result is fewer open homes and even fewer buyer property inspections. If buyers aren’t showing up for open homes, the longer it will take for the property to sell. Brisbane winter is also not too bad since winter in this suburb is considered mild. The decline of active buyers in Brisbane is not as much as that of the cooler parts of Australia. There is also a slight decline of sellers during this time of the year for Brisbane. This means there’s a decrease in the competition which can be good for you as a seller. Pricing may be determined by property management software Australia & real estate software.

When doing conveyancing, there are a few government bodies involved in the process. For one, the cost for your Searches will depend on which council the property is under.
