Where you become aware of fraud against your name it is best to take action early to prevent messy and elongated legal action later.
Some of the more unusual forms of disclosure that may be required are as follows:
It is important that you speak to your property lawyer before you sell a property to make sure you are satisfying your disclosure obligations to save you problems after the contract is signed.
If you want to undertake these investigations, you should make sure a special condition is added to the contract to give you rights after you sign. Your lawyer can assist you with the wording of this condition. You should also consider if there are other searches or factors that can help you decide if the property can be used for your particular purpose.
Buying a property and you just got a copy of the contract? Exciting isn't it?!
Need a contract drawn up for a property you want to put up on sale? Yup...there are some things you have to take note of.
So whether it's your first or your twenty-first time to buy a property, you want your hard-earned money to be secured. One of the most (if not THE most) important documents in conveyancing is the Contract of Sale. Getting the contract reviewed is a very essential part of the process. You can ask any wise and experienced buyer out there, and you'll get the same answer - get it reviewed by a solicitor.
Even when selling a property, the way a contract of sale has been drawn up can make a difference in the transaction. In QLD, the contract is usually drafted by the real estate agent. When you are selling privately, you can have a licensed conveyancer or property lawyer do this. A property lawyer, however, can do better because they can structure the contract in such a way that a buyer can't back out easily when they wish.
LEAD Conveyancing Sunshine Coast is just that. We are a team of professional lawyers specialising and focused on property law. When we review your contract, we scrutinise every detail and every line. When we draw up your contract, we compose selected wording so the other side cannot just abort out of buyer's remorse. When you decide to get our services, you ensure your investment is protected.
The real estate agent just called you up to deliver the good news - your offer just got accepted!
Now you have to get a solicitor to act on your behalf as the buyer. But what do you exactly get from their service? Here's what you should know. Your solicitor should be able to:
Opposite to reviewing the contract, when you're selling, your solicitor should be able to draw up a proper contract of sale for you.
At LEAD Conveyancing Sunshine Coast, you get all those mentioned in the list. Reviewing the contract is an optional and added service (for those who haven't signed yet) but for the whole process, our professional fee for our lawyers is a FIXED fee. It doesn't matter how many times you need to speak to your assigned lawyer to get advice. It doesn't matter how many minutes it took you on the phone with them. It doesn't matter if settlement takes 30, 45, or 60 days. Our legal fee stays fixed.
Should it be expensive to get a lawyer to do your conveyancing? Is a solicitor someone to stay away from when you need that title to be transferred to your name?
The answer is yes and no. Back in the olden days, getting a lawyer would cost you a fortune. Today, there are still some which can be expensive. That's because they still operate using the old system.
LEAD Conveyancing Sunshine Coast has evolved and moved together with technology's current. The presence of the internet, email, electronic documents and signatures, mobile phones, and other changes have enabled us to provide lawyer's legal services at very competitive and cheap conveyancing rates.
We have taken advantage of the availability of new resources which have made our operational process much more efficient and less time-consuming.
Now, getting a lawyer's legal services is within everyone's reach!
Next question - “Can I just get a conveyancer? They're cheaper!”
An honest answer is - Yes, you can. But here's the thing - we are talking about a property you're about to acquire. For some, it may be their first home. And generally, a house is any person's biggest investment in life. Conveyancing can be a rigorous process that can cost a lot of money in penalties if something goes wrong.
So first, will you risk your 6-figure property by getting the cheapest out there not knowing how well they can protect your interest? Will you be willing to take the risk of getting someone cheaper by a few hundred dollars for an unguaranteed kind of work which may have you end up spending more than what you should have when you started?
Bottom line, when disastrous consequences happen especially when it comes to the contract you signed, a conveyancer cannot and will not back you up. They may not even be held liable as long as they stayed within the grounds of their declared process. You on the other end who signed the contract will shoulder everything. You most likely will end up finding a solicitor to continue the job and find a way to turn things around which will cost you a lot more money.

The Sunshine Coast is one of the country's fastest developing economies, with each year growing at rates well above national averages, according to property market expert Terry Ryder. It is anticipated to expand to $33 billion by 2033 and is more likely to create sustainable long-term price growth. It is said that we can expect to see an average growth on the Sunshine Coast with up to 7% rise over the next 3 years to June 2022, as per the QBE Australian Housing Outlook Report 2020-2022. This forecast has been attributed to infrastructure investments in the Maroochydore city centre which is good news for investors and property occupiers. This sets up the area for economic stability and is slowly transitioning from its economic dependence on tourism to diversification.
Here are some major infrastructure projects in the area according to the Sunshine Coast Regional Council:

Sunshine Coast is a peri-urban region in South East Queensland, Australia. It is the district defined in 1967 as "the area contained in the Shires of Landsborough, Maroochy and Noosa, but excluding Bribie Island". Located 100 km (62 mi) north of the centre of Brisbane in South East Queensland, on the Coral Sea coastline, its urban area spans approximately 60 km (37 mi) of coastline and hinterland from Pelican Waters to Tewantin. The area was first settled by Papuasians migrating from northern Australia. Europeans settled in the area in the 19th century, with development progressing slowly until tourism became an important industry. The area has several coastal hubs at Caloundra, Kawana Waters, Maroochydore and Noosa Heads. Nambour and Maleny have developed as primary commercial centres for the hinterland. Since 2014, the Sunshine Coast district has been split into two local government areas, the Sunshine Coast Region and the Shire of Noosa, which administer the southern and northern parts of the Sunshine Coast respectively. As of June 2018, with an estimated urban population of 333,436, the Sunshine Coast is the third most populated area in Queensland and the 9th most populous in the country. The population of the area has grown steadily at an average annual rate of 2.4% year-on-year over the five years to 2018.
