Let us handle your property conveyancing

What are the legal aspects when buying a property?

When you buy a home, you will become involved in the process known as Conveyancing. This is  the legal aspect of transferring a property from one owner to another. We understand that while the jargon involved comes easily to us, it’s not always accessible to all. We’ll help you navigate the process from the signing of the contract to the completion of the transaction. 


We take you through the steps required when purchasing  or selling a property and will explain terms and the steps involved. We will conduct all relevant searches, notify you of any adverse searches, liaise with your Bank, and deal with the other parties to the transaction on our behalf to bring about a successful completion of your matter. 

We know that buying a home is one of the most important transactions of your life and we will explain everything you need to know about the legal aspects of purchasing or selling.

We cover the suburbs around Sandgate including Redcliffe, Deagon and Shorncliffe, plus a wide range of other North Brisbane suburbs for our loyal clients!

Buying a Home in Queensland?

Gill & Lane can provide all your conveyancing needs     


Cut to the chase

In Queensland, only a Solicitor can attend to Conveyancing. Gill and Lane have over Thirty years experience in this area and service clients throughout Queensland. Property conveyancing is required when real estate is bought and sold and legally transferred to the new owners. There are many different processes to follow if the purchase or sale of the property is to be seamless.  Our reputation in the area of conveyancing is well known in Queensland with many return clients and regular referrals.  


Look before you leap

While real estate agents often use standard forms for the property sale, it’s always wise to have solicitors such as ourselves to look at the finer detail. For example, we can advise you about the addition of any necessary clauses that protect you whether you are the buyer or the seller.

Some legal terms are difficult to understand and you can trust us that we’re conveying the right information. This will enable you to know exactly what you are signing for and thus prevent problems caused by being unclear about legal jargon. It’s far better to see a solicitor before your contract becomes unconditional rather than rushing the process and discovering problems later.


Fasten fixtures

To make sure that elegant chandelier and grand water feature are both staying put, it’s best to discover ahead of time what constitutes a ‘fixture’ in your newly purchased property. This way, you’ll be correctly briefed whether the seller has taken any goods from the home or yard that they should have left behind—it prevents any nasty surprises. Shrubs, wall to wall floor coverings, drapes and track blinds, light fittings and even the television antenna are fixtures that should be left in place when a home is sold.

By approaching Gill & Lane first, we can help you avoid problems later and you can enjoy your new property with fixtures intact.



Dodge the jargon

Other jargon such as ‘Caveats’, ‘Certificate of Title’, ‘Completion Date’, ‘Cooling off Period’, ‘Condition of Sale’ or the implication of an easement are areas we are happy to discuss. In addition, we can carry out searches on your property to determine if there are any encumbrances over your title which may affect your use of the land.

These could include a heritage search, bankruptcy search and Australian Securities commission Search to name a few.
