As part of a safe conveyance, we must order third party searches to include into the Contract Of Sale as required under NSW law. We will order the searches on your behalf, pay costs up-front, and then pass these costs onto you when your Contract of Sale is ready to be issued to you or your agent.
Please note that conveyancing fees are dependent on property type, City Council (at time of order) and lot specifics. So request a quote now to receive up-to-date prices.

A Search or Certificate reveals information specific to the property. These documents are mandatory and part of the statutory requirement to sell property. These searches are enclosed in the Contract of Sale.
Our package for Apartments, Townhouses and Units includes the minimum searches needed to comply with the legislative requirements. Again, search costs are Council specific, so please request a quote to get specific pricing for your property.

The Think Conveyancing Guarantee:
Thank you for considering Think Conveyancing. I understand that as a property seller, you’re looking for two things: to keep your expenses down, and to settle on time without issues.
As conveyancers, we are bound by professional obligations to protect you in your transaction. As solicitors, we must work within the confines of the system and follow specific rules to keep you safe.
Whilst our goal is always to exceed our clients’ expectations by delivering an on-time, on-budget service, occasionally, factors outside our control can impact the process. These can include things such as your particular lot, or the other parties, including the vendor or the bank. That said…
We take our responsibilities as conveyancers very seriously.
We work to a high standard and we are committed to protecting our clients whilst also achieving the best possible result for them. There may be situations where the process is held up by additional searches or third party disputes, however I guarantee that although we can’t control those factors, we can control the quality of our service, our people and our commitment.
I guarantee that I will hold my people to the highest standard for every property transaction we manage. At Think Conveyancing we have cultivated an open, transparent and hard-working culture, and I believe in our people, our processes and our service — 100%.
Therefore, I can confidently pledge that if you feel for any reason that your transaction is not getting the attention and diligence it deserves, reach out to my Customer Happiness team that works with the appropriate Senior Leadership, who will then conduct an in depth investigation. If you are still not satisfied, you can reach out to me and I will personally deal with it, one-on-one.
Consider us for your conveyancing needs, and you won’t be disappointed.
We look forward to working with you!
