    Well, you’re in luck. This extensive, but easy-to-read guide will help you make an informed decision about finding a Brisbane conveyancer.

Why choose a Brisbane conveyancer?

The third most populous city of Australia, Brisbane is famous for its friendly people, diversity, beautiful weather and local icons such as South Bank, the Gallery of Modern Art, Mount Coot-tha, koalas, the Australia Zoo (made popular by the late Steve Irwin) and more.

Brisbane is also relatively close to pristine beaches, such as those in the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast; it is also a convenient trip away from the popular Stradbroke Island, Moreton Island, Whitsundays and more.

In terms of real estate, there are numerous emerging projects in Brisbane: the population is growing, and the Central Business District is undergoing significant developments such as the Queens Wharf, which is said to create an influx of new employment as well as tourism. As such, property investors have considered Brisbane as a hotspot, especially since properties can generally be more affordable than properties in cities such as Sydney and Brisbane.

Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland. Property legislation in Australia can differ from state to state. As such, if you are looking to buy or sell property in Brisbane, it is highly recommended to find a conveyancer that is familiar with your local area, particular its local laws.

That’s why we’ve only chosen trusted and experienced conveyancers that are closest to your area of choice. You no longer have to be confused by the endless options of conveyancers you see online - search now to see our shortlist of vetted Brisbane conveyancers, filtered by price.

Brisbane conveyancing at a glance

When buying or selling a property in Brisbane, a conveyancer is just one (but important) piece of the entire property buying process. Although not legally required, conveyancers help oversee many complicated parts of your property transaction and prevent unnecessary risks, such as the potential to lose your 10 percent deposit.

In a nutshell, a conveyancer helps ensure that there will be no legal issues that could have an effect on your ownership, sale, purchase or use of your property.

Why do you need a conveyancer, and how much does it cost in Brisbane/Queensland?

As mentioned above, it’s not legally required to engage in a conveyancer. However, it is highly advised.

What do conveyancers do?

A Brisbane conveyancer can help:

  • Lodge your legal documentation
  • Lodge rates, tax and council certificates
  • Provide title searches for your property
  • Draw up your contract of sale (if selling)
  • Represent you during the settlement process
  • Represent your legal interests
  • Help negotiate aspects of the buying or selling process

Conveyancer fees in Brisbane (or Queensland)

The average total costs of a conveyancer in Brisbane (or Queensland) may vary between $1300 to $1600 when buying a property, or between $500 to $800 when selling a property. Keep in mind this cost may vary, and we advise you ask for a transparent quote from your conveyancer before engaging with them.

Brisbane conveyancing fee cost breakdown

As a general guide, on a $1300 conveyancing fee, expect:

  • Approx $800 in professional fees
  • Approx $500 in search fees

What is a professional fee?

These are the various fees required to perform your conveyancing. Some of these fees can be used to cover their advisory, stationery, their time and overheads.

What is a search fee?

So what exactly is a search fee? Your conveyancer needs to discover, or do a ‘search’, to verify that the seller of the property actually has the legal right to sell the property. They will also need to discover whether there are any encumbrances on the title, or if there are any restrictions on how the property can be used. Search pricing can also be dependent on the nature of the property, location and council it sits in.

When do you need a conveyancer?

Ideally, you should begin discussions with a conveyancer before you make an offer or decide to sell your property. They should be able to help assess your contract, and advise whether it’s still advisable to pursue your deal.

Brisbane conveyancers can be useful when:

  • Buying or selling real estate
  • Amending or updating a title
  • Land subdivisions
  • Making changes to an easement

Brisbane conveyancers vs solicitors - is there a difference?

At some point in the property buying or selling process, you may ask yourself, “Should I engage in a conveyancer or solicitor? And is there an actual difference?”

Typically, a conveyancer specialises solely in property law. Solicitors, on the other hand, have the potential to specialise in other aspects of law. Conveyancers, in terms of fees, can be more affordable than engaging in a solicitor. Therefore, in Brisbane, buyers and sellers of real estate may generally engage conveyancers for simpler, more straightforward transactions, and work with solicitors for more complicated deals.

For example, one may engage a conveyancer to purchase an off the plan apartment in Brisbane’s CBD, whereas one may engage a solicitor when undergoing a divorce and requiring to sell their portion of the property in the process.

Depending on the conveyancer or solicitor, there may also be a difference in the level of service. A more ‘affordable’ conveyancer may need to streamline their services in order to pay for their overheads, and may not provide as high level of service as a solicitor. However, this doesn’t mean the conveyancer can’t do their job effectively. As mentioned above, conveyancers are the go-to professionals for simpler real estate transactions.
