Frequently Asked Questions
Over 99% of Conveyancing matters in Australia are undertaken by solicitors or licensed conveyancers, and there is a good reason for that. An experience solicitor/licensed conveyancer can help you uncover unfavourable terms hidden in the contract so that you can avoid unnecessary losses and delays in the property transfer process.
Conveyancing is the process of transferring the legal ownership of a property from the seller/vendor to a purchaser. Typically, the process involves each party hiring a licensed conveyancer or lawyer to deal with the obligations and rights under a contract, as well as to comply with government legislation.
The main thing that a Conveyancer (or Solicitor) does for you, is to ensure that all legal obligations are met in your property purchase/sale, and that you are legally protected throughout the process and to ensure the smooth processing of the transaction.
Examples of some of the work that a lawyer or licensed conveyancer may do for you include the following:
- Checking the terms and conditions of the contract
- Preparing all necessary documents for your property transaction
- Preparation of Contract of Sale (if you are selling your property)
- Perform Title Checks to ensure that the title will legally transfer to you after the completed transaction
- Undertaking settlement on your behalf

Transfer Duty (also known as) Stamp Duty is a tax payable by the buyer of a property (legal requirement under the Standard Contract of a Sale of Land). Essentially, it is a general land tax which is levied on every property sold.
The rate of stamp duty charged requires consideration of the property’s purchaser price and whether you are entitled to any stamp duty concessions.
