Buying and Selling Property

Buying or selling a property could the largest single transaction that you ever make. This is why it’s important that you seek the advice of an experienced property lawyer to make sure that everything is done properly to avoid any costly mistakes.

We understand the frustrations involved in not knowing what’s going on at any given time, which is why communication is so important for everyone concerned in the process. We make sure that you’re informed at all times to help ensure a smooth transaction.  

We are passionate in all that we do and strive to provide the best conveyancing in Cairns and Queensland wide.

What is the role of a conveyancing lawyer?

If you’re just taking your first steps on the property ladder, then you may be wondering what a conveyancing lawyer does.

Our conveyancing lawyer acts on your behalf working alongside our experienced estate planning, commercial, and commercial property lawyers in order to give you the most comprehensive, legal advice tailored to your individual needs.

If you’re selling a property, we’ll do everything in our power to ensure the sale goes through smoothly. We will prepare all the necessary documents, such as the Vendor’s Statement and Contract of Sale, and lead you every step of the way to settlement, in a simplified and transparent fashion.

If you’re buying a home or investment property, we will provide you with any pre-contractual advice and searches. We prepare all of the paperwork, deal with your financier, calculate settlement figures and attend settlement. 

Don’t worry, our conveyancing lawyers in Cairns will explain the conveyancing process and all that’s involved in plain simple English – no fancy legal jargon here!

Wherever possible, it’s always advisable to contact us before signing the contract. This way, you can be sure there will be no ‘hidden’ nasties or expensive surprises lurking in your contract.

Our aim throughout the buying or selling process is to provide you with honest, helpful advice and quality service from start to finish.
