I want to buy a property:
The outlays include:
- Standard searches Title search; Registered plan of land; Qld transport and main roads; Council rates financial position search; Water usage/utilities search; Land tax clearance search; Title search on the day of settlement; if you are buying a townhouse/unit – body corporate information search.
- *(please note that councils in different areas charge different search fees. The quote is based on the standard searches that we conduct for a Gold Coast property. If the property is situated elsewhere the searches cost may vary slightly.)
- Settlement fee (for attending the settlement venue in person or electronically via PEXA)
- Priority notice (we do a priority notice notifying the Titles office of your intention to purchase, which freezes the title so that no funny business can be done by the seller just before you settle the property)
Buyers please be aware that you may need to pay stamp duty and title lodgement fees. The fees are charged by the Office of State Revenue and the Titles office (DNRM). If you are unsure how much these fees will be for your purchase, contact our office, give us the necessary details and we will calculate for you. Alternatively hop onto our website https://www.pearcelegalgroup.com.au/useful-links/ and you will find a helpful calculator in the resources section.
If your bank or financial institution charge for cheques, these costs are borne by the client.
Extras – there are none! We have laid out all the costs in this quote. We do not charge a fee for a finance extension, building and pest extension or a settlement extension. We do not charge you to phone us if you have a question. Feel free to pick up the phone any time for an update of your conveyance or drop us a line.
If your conveyance becomes complicated or blows up in any way, which is rare, and is not within the scope of a standard conveyance, a new estimate of fees will be given to you.
