What are searches?
Searches are files and information gathered from local councils and other authorities which tell you everything you need to know about a property or land. These searches reduce your risk when making a purchase by uncovering any existing debts, if the property is heritage listed, if the title deed is lawful and correct. Searches also allow us to discover any major construction plans nearby or limits to what you can and can’t do with the property. Read more about searches on our blog.
How are conveyancing fees estimated?
If you’re shopping around for a conveyancer, you might have noticed all the quotes are slightly different, but what affects the price? First of all, not every property is the same which means different paperwork, different councils and searches (as explained above). This results in a varied cost. The other expense is the lawyers and paralegals time, we have control over this, which is why we offer a flat fee even if things get complicated or there are surprise issues.
