What is Conveyancing?Conveyancing is essentially the transfer of legal ownership of any property (real estate) from one person to another. Our people and case management systems will make the legal side of the conveyancing process as quick, efficient and hassle free as possible.
What does a Conveyancer do?Conveyancers take much of the work and worry of buying or selling off your shoulders. Apart from managing the lengthy and complex process of transferring ownership and ensuring that the interests of all concerned are fully protected, your conveyancer will advise you of your responsibilities and rights and deal with any legal issues that may arise from the transaction.
What is transfer duty, and do I need to pay it?Transfer duty (commonly referred to as Stamp Duty) is a tax imposed by the State Government on the Buyer for all properties purchased in Queensland and is calculated at either:
- First Home Buyer (concessional)
- Principal Place of Residence, Vacant land, Investment, Commercial (non-concessional) as a percentage of the purchase price and yes, you do need to pay it!
