We offer fixed professional costs that reflect the knowledge and service we provide.

As part of the service we offer, we undertake various searches of the local Councils, the Land Titles Office and other relevant organisations for information about the property you are selling. There are various fees attached to these searches and there are also registration fees payable to the Land Titles Office.

Sale Disbursements

You will need to budget for approximately $600-$700 in fees and disbursements in addition to our professional costs (see below for further information on our professional costs).

This includes a fee of $198.22 to register the discharge of any mortgage registered against your property, as well as relevant title, rates and land tax searches.

If you don’t have a mortgage, your fees and disbursements will be approximately $300.

Sale Transaction Guide

  • VOI to enable us to act on your behalf we are required to take reasonable steps to verify your identity. This can be done in several ways:
    – INFOtrack remotely or in our office by appointment
    – AUS post
  • Right to Deal – It is now a legislative requirement to prove not only your identity but your actual
    ownership of the property by way of documentation additional to your name being on the title.
    With the other documentation you return to us, please also include a copy of either your:
    – Rates notice

    Specific to the property being sold.
  • Arrange to sign any discharge of mortgage documentation with your finance institution.
  • As utilities are personal, you’ll need to organise final readings and disconnection or transfer of services to your new home.
  • Notify change of address to relevant organisations (bank, insurers, doctors, telecommunications, electoral roll, etc).
  • Building and contents insurance should not be cancelled until after the settlement, as the property may be at your risk until that date.

Each conveyancing transaction is unique. Contact us to discuss the process and we can provide you with an obligation-free cost estimate for our professional costs.
