PART B

What Are The Costs?
The conveyancing process, Lawyer and team are included within the professional fee (inc GST). Our professional fee is 100% fixed. The only other cost you need to consider are the necessary searches.
As part of a safe conveyance, we must order third party searches to verify the contents of the Section 32 and to uncover any outstanding rates, water bills, land tax, etc owed on the property. This information is critical for due diligence and gives your Conveyancer the dollar amount needed to be recovered from the Seller (obviously, you don’t want to pay for past bills).
We will order the searches on your behalf, pay costs up-front, and then pass this cost to you upon settlement.
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.
As per our guidelines, we RENDER SERVICE FIRST. Our first invoice (retainer) will be sent with the first suite documents. The balance of actual conveyancing fees and searches is payable at settlement.

What Are 3rd Party Searches?

Searches are used by the conveyancer to do health checks on your property — they are essential and should not be skipped, as the consequences could be financially disastrous.
We use Searches to check for…
  • Outstanding bills; Such as unpaid council rates, water bills, utilities, etc.
  • Outstanding land tax; Land tax due to the Office of State Revenue.
  • Errors in paperwork; Cross checking the name, lot and transfer details.

What Searches and Services Are Included In The Buying Package?

Name of Search Description How Does This Item Protect You?
Registered Search Statement Provide title particulars, ownership details and encumbrances on title. Confirm that the Vendor has rights to sell the property and determine any legal encumbrances that may affect the enjoyment of the buyer.
Copy of Plan Provide a map of the location of the lot, and the dimensions, gradient and other physical features. Make sure that you are buying the right property -while rare, there have been instances where the wrong property was purchased.
Land Tax Clearance Certificate Provide details on any outstanding payment of land tax due to the Office of State Revenue . Find out how much Land Tax is owed by the Vendor – and if there is an amount outstanding, ask Vendor to pay it off.
Land Information Certificate Provide details of the rates payable for the current billing cycle. Find out if the Vendor has any rates owing – and if an amount is outstanding, ask Vendor to pay it off.
Water Information Statement Special meter read & fixed charges payable for the current billing cycle. Find out if the Vendor has any water bills owing – and if an amount is outstanding, ask Vendor to pay it off.

Settlement Attendance Representative to meet with the other party, to complete the transaction. Meet with the bank, or the Vendor’s representative and hand over the cheque with final payment. Be on site to clear any potential issues (we will send the Lawyer if needed, we are located a two minute walk away from the main Settlement rooms)
File Opening Fee Data protection and electronic encoding. Security and protection of your private details.
Postage Deliver original documents (excludes courier). Banks often require a physical copy of the paperwork as part of their standard process.
Check Search Confirms vendor is still the owner prior to settlement. Double check that the seller is still entitled to sell the property, before clearing the cheque and releasing funds.

Are Additional Searches Recommended?

Each property and each situation is different. Generally, most standard residential purchases require no additional searches. However, in certain circumstances, extra searches may be recommended.
For instance, if you’re buying land in where was once a mining area, a Contaminated Land Search is advisable (and comes at an extra fee). We will not compromise the quality of your conveyance and will only order additional searches on your authorisation.

The Think Conveyancing Guarantee:

{SPEEDPPC-FINAL}

Thank you for considering Think Conveyancing. I understand that 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!
