Buying

RC Conveyancing is backed by over 30 years of legal expertise in helping clients to buy residential and commercial property in Queensland.

Not sure how conveyancing works? We’ll take you through each step of the process and be on hand whenever you need to speak with us. Buying can be stressful and RC Conveyancing appreciates that a good conveyancer can make all the difference to buying property with a minimum of issues.

Although conveyancing traditionally begins with a signed contract, we strongly recommend you show us the seller’s contract before you sign. We’ll ensure it complies with Queensland law and draw your attention to anything in the proposed contract that may not be in your interest. Once the contract is agreed upon and signed, you are on your way to owning the property.

Buying Conveyancing Process

This is a  brief summary of the major steps in the buying process. RC Conveyancing’s initial correspondence with you will spell out this process in detail.

STEP 1: Checking the unsigned contract

We check the seller’s contract thoroughly and discuss any concerns with you.

STEP 2: Receipt of signed contract

We take care of searches on the property, stamp duty arrangements and all other relevant paperwork.

STEP 3: Contract goes unconditional

This includes advising the seller of the outcomes of building, pest and finance clauses and formalising any agreed price reduction based on the results of pre-purchase inspections.

STEP 4: Lead up to settlement

We liaise with your financer and the seller’s solicitor to ensure all goes smoothly in the lead-up to settlement day.

STEP 5: Settlement day

Following your satisfactory pre-settlement inspection, we meet with the seller’s conveyancing solicitors at an appointed time, following which the property will be yours. All post-settlement matters are also taken care of.

Selling

Many RC Conveyancing clients who use our services for buying a new property also engage us for selling their current one. Whether or not you have just purchased, you can count on us to be across all aspects of your sale.

Starting with careful preparation of your contract of sale, we’ll take you through each step of the process and always be available to answer your questions. We understand that clients who sell are often busy with running open house inspections or preparing to move. We’ll ensure the buyer complies with contract terms, conditions and time limits. We’ll also handle all the paperwork and settlement matters and inform the relevant authorities of your property’s sale at the end of the process.

Selling Process

This is a brief summary of the major steps in the selling process. RC Conveyancing’s initial correspondence with you will spell out this process in detail.

This includes advice on your obligations (e.g. smoke alarms) and help with the wording any Special Conditions you may wish to attach to the sale.

STEP 2: Receipt of signed contract

We take care of all relevant paperwork and maintain contact with the buyer on matters pertaining to the finance clause and the outcome of various pre-purchase inspections.

FAQ

If the answer you are looking for does not appear in this section, simply email us at mail@rcconveyancing.com.au or fill in the form below and we'll see if we can help.

  • I noticed that the cost of conveyancing for buying a property is more than when selling. Why is that?
    When you buy a property, a greater number of searches need to be undertaken on your behalf. This is reflected in a higher fee compared to conveyancing when you sell.
  • Is “transfer duty” the same as the old stamp duty?
    Yes. Keep in mind, however, that in Queensland many home buyers qualify for a significant concession/discount on the full transfer duty amount. Ask us for details.
  • I wish to sign a contract to buy a property. Can I have additional inspections done that
    are not allowed for in the standard contract?
    Yes. Ask us for advice on the wording of any Special Conditions you want inserted in the contract.
  • What does it mean when you undertake “searches” on a property?
    When you buy a property there are a whole range of matters relating to the building and land that you need to be checked, in case the new owner is made liable or adversely affected. This ranges from existing disputes with neighbouring properties to future plans by governments to build road and rail infrastructure. Our searches are very thorough and will identify any issues of concern.
  • I’m confused about the various price adjustments that happen at settlement. Can you explain?
    Settlement often occurs in the middle of various billing periods such as council rates, land tax and strata fees. The price adjustments at settlement simply ensure that both seller and buyer are paying their fair share of monies owed for such matters.
  • I’m very busy with work and family. How many meetings will I need to attend at your office?
    Often, face-to-face meetings between conveyancer and client are unnecessary during the buying or selling process. If you like, we can arrange for all communications to be done electronically and over the phone.
  • How long does your conveyancing service usually take?
    Allowing for any pre-contract and post-settlement matters, this is determined by the number of days to settlement. In Queensland contracts are usually 30 days from signing date to settlement date, though buyers and sellers can negotiate a different time period before signing.
