Costs/Fees

This is the amount you pay us for our services in acting on your behalf in your property transaction. We provide a friendly and efficient service at a low cost. Our costs are substantially less than the recommended scale of costs used by lawyers. You will find our costs to be very competitive.

Fees and Disbursements

These are amounts paid to the local Council, the Water Authority, the Land Titles Office and other Government organisations for information about the property you are selling or buying.

Fees and disbursements (excluding stamp duty on a purchase) are as follows:

Sale

Add approximately $332.62 for search and registration fees and disbursements.  This includes a Land Titles Office filing fee of $164.30 on a discharge of mortgage if applicable.  If there is no mortgage to discharge then the fees and disbursements are approximately $168.32. Please contact us for details of legal costs which should also be taken into account.

Purchase

Add appoximately $638.89 for search and registration fees and disbursements. This includes the Land Titles Office filing fee on the transfer of $203.05. The remaining fees are for Council certificates, Water Authority certificate, land tax search, title search, priority notice and sundries.  Additional fees may be incurred if further searches or documents (eg Schedule of Easements) are required. Please contact us for details of legal costs which should also be taken into account.

You will also have to pay a government Stamp Duty on any purchase.  The Stamp Duty payable varies according to the purchase price. Please click on the following link to calculate the stamp duty payable: Click here to calculate the stamp duty payable.

These fees will increase with periodical increases in government charges.

The service was excellent. The staff exceeded their responsibilities. I would not hesitate to use your company again.
