Conveyancing Frequently Asked Questions

What does a conveyancer do?

A conveyancer is a qualified professional who manages the transfer of property based on the terms of the contract between the seller and the buyer. It’s the conveyancer’s job to make sure the property transfer is legal and binding, and that the conditions of your contract are met.

In some cases that may be as simple as facilitating the transfer of the property’s title. In other cases, conveyancing lawyers Brisbane may perform research into the property’s history, restrictions and limitations, and provide advice regarding the contract.

How much is Conveyancing in Brisbane

A Brisbane conveyancing lawyer will typically charge between $600 and $1,300 for their services. You may be required to pay additional fees to cover things like inspections and settlements. It is common to pay a flat fee for conveyancing. The actual amount you pay will depend on the property in question and any legal issues that arise along the way. Each firm sets their own rates. Talk to your conveyancing lawyers Brisbane to find out more about their fees.

Is it better to use a conveyancer or solicitor?

It is often faster and more affordable to use property conveyancing specialists when you’re dealing with a simple property transfer. Brisbane conveyancing lawyers are typically more affordable than solicitors, and they often provide results in a much shorter time frame. 

For more complex property transfers that involve family law, business law or tax law implications, you may be better off working with a solicitor. A solicitor will have a greater understanding of the relevant laws and will be better suited to handle property transfers that come with other risks attached.

What is the difference between a lawyer and a conveyancer?

Lawyers are qualified professionals with a deep understanding of many fields of law, often including property law. On the other hand, a conveyancer is a licensed professional who has undertaken specific conveyancing training to allow them to handle the transfer of property.
Locally, conveyancing services can only be provided by qualified conveyancing lawyers Brisbane. While a conveyancer is allowed to offer their services to clients, all work must be overseen by a qualified solicitor at a law firm. If you’re engaging conveyancing lawyers Brisbane, make sure they are part of an experienced law firm that is legally allowed to deliver conveyancing services.

How quickly can conveyancing be done?

It often takes between 8 to 12 weeks to complete the conveyancing process. The actual time frame depends on the settlement period and other contractual conditions. For a short settlement, the conveyancing process may only take a month. In other cases, it may take several months to complete the process.
A Brisbane conveyancing lawyer will be able to give you a more accurate time estimate once they have reviewed the contract. There may still be issues that delay finalising the property transfer. While conveyancing may take a little while to complete, you won’t be required to do much of the work yourself. Your Brisbane conveyancing lawyers will handle the heavy lifting of managing documents, researching the property and ensuring the contracts are in order.

Who pays for property conveyancing?

In Queensland, the seller of a property is required to pay for conveyancing services once they have accepted an offer on their property. The buyer of a property will also be required to pay for their own conveyancing services if they elect to hire a conveyancer.
There is no requirement for property buyers to hire conveyancing lawyers Brisbane. However, the sale of a property can be complex, and there are major pitfalls that a Brisbane conveyancing lawyer can help you avoid. For that reason, it’s beneficial for buyers and sellers to both engage and pay for their own conveyancing lawyer Brisbane wide. With a professional’s help, you’ll have peace of mind that the property you're buying is free of encumbrances and is suitable for whatever use you have in mind.

Should I get a conveyancer before signing a contract?

You should always have property contracts reviewed by a conveyancer before you sign. Ideally, you should engage a conveyancer before you even make an offer on a property so that you’re prepared to proceed as soon as possible.
Signing a contract is part of a binding legal agreement. That means you need to ensure you’re aware of any issues with the property before you sign. With enough notice, a conveyancing lawyer Brisbane will be able to review the contract and perform research into the property to ensure it meets your needs and that it isn’t subject to any restrictions. In most cases it’s worth engaging a Brisbane conveyancing lawyer as soon as you begin your hunt for a new property. Your conveyancer may be able to provide advice and feedback to help you avoid the pitfalls that can come with buying a property.
