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
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.
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.

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.
Is it expensive to get a lawyer for conveyancing? Today, solicitor services are now within everyone's reach.
LEAD Conveyancing has moved together with technology's current. The use of the internet, electronic documents, emails, and mobile phones have enabled us to provide services at very competitive prices.
“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.
