Frequently Asked Questions
What searches should I order when purchasing property in North Lakes?
North Lakes is a great residential location for anyone wanting to be close to the best amenities and services in the Moreton Bay region. With so much recent development in the North Lakes area you should always consider obtaining a building records search to make sure the property is currently council approved. Properties without council approval can result in substantial cost to you after settlement.
If you are looking at renovating or making changes to the property then you should check the underground service locations to make sure you do not damage or obstruct them in the future. You can do a sewerage and drainage plan search, telco search and energex/ergon search to find the locations of these services. The dial before you dig service can also be helpful.
Where the property you are looking at is low lying then you should also check to see if it has been flooded before. Moreton Bay Council offer a flood mapping service which can help you to find this information: https://www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au/Services/Property-Ownership/Flooding/Flood-Check
What disclosure as a seller may I need to give if selling a property in North Lakes?
While Queensland is a “buyer beware” state when it comes to selling property there are still a number of disclosures you will need to make to a buyer depending on the specific circumstances of the property. It is important that you speak to a solicitor before signing a contract to sell your property in order to prevent the buyer from having rights to terminate the contract or claim compensation from you.
With North Lakes housing many fairly recently built properties it is important that you make sure all development approval charges have been paid in relation to the property. Where you know charges have not been paid then you must disclose these to any incoming buyers when they seek to purchase property. If you are unsure if all charges have been paid then you should speak to the council to see if they can confirm payment or consider obtaining a Town Planning search before selling the property.
Does the seller have to leave inground plants after settlement?
Inground plants are commonly considered to be fixtures of a property so in most cases the seller will need to leave the inground plants. Potted plants however can usually be taken. If the seller wants to take any particular inground plants then you should have these included in the contract as ‘excluded fixtures’,
Do I have to complete the due date in my finance clause?
Most Queensland Contracts will require all sections of the finance clause to be completed in order for the contract to be made subject to finance. It is important that you complete all these sections if you require your contract to be subject to finance or speak to your solicitor if you are unsure what needs to be completed.
Should I do a building and pest inspection on a unit?
You should do a building and pest inspection on a unit even if it is part of a multi story complex. Structural issues appear in body corporate properties as commonly as any other property. In order to find these issues you would need a licenced inspector to inspect the property and advise you. Pests can also be present in all types of buildings which can easily impact your use and enjoyment of the property after settlement. It is always important to make sure you do your building and pest inspection if you do not want any unhappy surprises after settlement.

So whether it’s your first or your thirty-first time buying a property, you want your hard-earned money secured. The most important document in conveyancing is the Contract of Sale and reviewing it is an essential part of the process. You can ask any experienced buyer, and you’ll get the same answer – have it reviewed by a solicitor.
Even when selling, the way a contract is drawn up can make a big difference. When you are doing a private sale, a licensed conveyancer or property lawyer can do this. However, a property lawyer can do a better job by structuring the contract where a buyer can’t back out easily as they wish.
LEAD Conveyancing is a team of lawyers specialising in property law. We scrutinise every line of your contract. When you get our services, you ensure the protection of your investment.

Now you have to get a solicitor for conveyancing. Do you know what you should get from their service? Your solicitor should be able to:
- Review the contract prior to signing.
- Advise the best options for any given scenario.
- Provide a list of costs involved in the process.
- Communicate with all third parties involved.
- Make amendments on documents.
- Make sure your interest is the main priority.
When you’re selling, your lawyer will draw up a contract of sale for you.
At LEAD, you get all that’s mentioned in the list. The contract review is an optional step and an added cost but our professional fee is fixed.

Why do you need Solicitors in North Lakes?
“Can I not just use a conveyancer? They’re cheaper!”
Yes, you can. However, considering a house is a person’s biggest investment, risking it by getting a cheap service and not knowing if they can protect your interest may not be a wise move.
When disastrous consequences happen, a conveyancer cannot back you up. They may even be unaccountable if they stayed within their declared process. ON the other hand, you who signed the contract will shoulder everything. You will, most likely, end up looking for a solicitor to continue the job and to turn things around which will cost you more money.
