Pricing

Our fees are listed below and are inclusive of GST. We charge a fixed (or flat) fee.  We do not charge extra for photocopying, faxing or phone calls, but you reimburse us for things we pay on your behalf such as title and property searches.

We offer quality and in-depth expertise at an affordable price. If you are selling you want a watertight contract. If you are buying, you want an expert who will “run the ruler” on the property you want to buy.  You can get cheap conveyancing and leasing, but you do get what you pay for.

We are happy to negotiate a different fee with you in which case we will give you a quote before you make any commitment.

As well as paying our fees, you reimburse our out-of-pocket expenses, which may include title searches, title documents, property certificates from various government departments and settlement costs. For a typical conveyance of a house or unit on a single title, the out-of-pocket expenses usually range between $250 and $500.

We can also order pest and building inspection reports, strata inspection reports and surveys.

We not not add any mark-up on the out-of-pocket expenses to them. Rest assured, we do not charge you for internal office expenses like photocopying, faxing and telephone calls as some other lawyers may do.

We accept payment by EFT, credit or debit card (VISA or Mastercard) or by cheque. For a normal conveyance, you pay our fees in two instalments: on exchange of contracts and at settlement.  For other work, we invoice on a monthly basis.

In buying a property, stamp duty is the biggest cost other than the purchase price.  Stamp duty must be paid within 3 months from exchange of contracts or by settlement, whichever is earlier. Normally, settlement is 6 weeks from exchange.
