Conveyancing Solicitors Qld – experts with personal service and attention to detail

by Andrew Lind on 16 August, 10

How do you pick a good conveyancing lawyer?

Here are my top 6 tips:

  1. Responsive – when you need them you can get a solicitor on the phone
  2. Knowledgeable – they know what they are talking about and speak about it in clear language
  3. Practical– they are prepared not just to give you advice but make practical suggestions and recommendations (“If I were you this is what I would do ….”)
  4. Personal – they take the time to understand what is important to you and the particular property
  5. Recommended – other clients are saying … these guys are good. Read what clients are saying about us.
  6. Price – You will get what you pay for, but the price must be fair and fixed

We have recently paid off our house (loan with ANZ). We are a bit confused as to what happens next. The bank has said there is no paperwork as such but we thought we would be given property deeds. The bank has said we need to pay $160 to them for something…and then we can collect a copy of the title from the GCC. Or do nothing until we want to sell or apply for a loan. We have a second mortgage with them for a property investment. I’m just a little concerned that I have no documentation to say I have discharged this debt. It may be a mixture of bank paranoia and disappointment at not getting a bit of paper in our hands to say we have climbed this particular mountain! Any advice would help!

I am a first home buyer and am still looking at properties in Brisbane.

I was wondering is there somewhere I can find out more about the process? and when I should begin to consult with a lawyer?

Intrested in Things like; what are my obligations after making a offer? Are my obligations different if the offer is verbal or written? Is there specific wording I should use in any offer?

Thanks in Advance.

Read as much as you can.

Have a look at what the REIQ (Real Estate Institute of Queensland) has published. Here is a link to a piece I found.

Make an appointment to sit down with a Conveyancing Solicitor before you sign your first contract, when you have a proposed contract in front of you. This may cost you $300-400 but will be a very worth while investment.

My partner and i put a contract on a property which was subject to finance. Our loan was through our mum and dad who were going ‘guarantor’ for $40,000, for some reason the loan was unconditionally approved but then the bank requested my parents drop there overdraft by 115 k after it was approved, which they refused to do.
So we did not get finance which caused the contract to cease. Now the vendors are holding our deposit of $2000, because they say finance was available! If finance was availiable we would have purchased the house. What do we do and where do we stand? will we get our deposit back??? Thanks heaps. Sincerely, Jessica

You are going to need to take some specific legal advice on this question. You will need to provide a copy of the Sale Contract and all correspondence to a solicitor to be able to give you this advice. My initial thought is that if the Vendor accepted your termination based on your inability to obtain finance Contract of Sale would usually provide that the Deposit should be refunded to you. If our Property Law team can help please let us know.
