Are you buying or selling a residential property, unit or vacant land in Stanthorpe or the Southern Downs? Engage our dedicated property conveyancing team and experience the Enterprise Legal difference.
When it comes to residential conveyancing, not all firms are the same! Buying or selling a residence can be one of the biggest events of your life, so it makes sense to engage conveyancers who will dedicate their time and enthusiasm to making your transaction a smooth, efficient and stress-free experience to remember.
Based in Toowoomba, Enterprise Legal is renowned for their unmatched level of client service and genuine passion for assisting clients of all different backgrounds and circumstances. It is this approach, together with our exclusive cap on the number of matters that we choose to accept each month, which sees our team settle more transactions on time when compared to other conveyancing firms. Our team actively engages with agents, financiers and all other third parties, to ensure everyone is working together to get the best outcomes for all parties.
Our team doesn’t just ‘go through the motions’ using automated processes and documents, but rather, our conveyancers take an interest in what the transaction means to you and uses their experience and commercial approach to achieve the best outcome for you, as efficiently and smoothly as possible.
Our fixed-fee legal conveyancing service represents excellent value for money, with reference to the superior level of time and care that our Toowoomba-based team dedicates to your sale in Stanthorpe. In the world of conveyancing, beware of ‘budget’ or ‘high volume’ conveyancers, who generally compromise on the time spent on your matter in order to offer you a cheaper price. Our team is focussed on handling your significant transaction with the same level of care and interest that they would if it was their own, without cutting corners.
* All prices include GST
Disbursements are any additional costs that might be necessary to complete your matter.
This can include property searches (both compulsory and optional), bank fees, Titles Registration fees, stamp duty and the costs of any services provided by other experts (for example, building and pest inspections). This amount will always be disclosed to you and explained to you, with complete transparency about what it is being used for and why.
Enterprise Legal does not profiteer from your disbursements – this means that we charge you exactly what we get charged and nothing more.
We highly recommend seeking our advice prior to signing the contract. This ensures that all relevant details are correct and all conditions are drafted to ensure your interests are adequately protected. The Enterprise Legal team offers a next day turnaround on draft contract reviews, which means there is no risk of us ‘holding up the deal’ and you can rest easy knowing that you are protected.
It is important that we carry out certain searches to check that the seller has met their disclosure obligations, that warranties in the Contract are correct and to obtain the information required to assist in your conveyance. Some search results may evidence a right to terminate the Contract or claim compensation from the Seller. Other search results may reveal whether the Property is potentially adversely affected or whether there are restrictions on your potential to use and enjoy the Property.
Transfer duty, also known as stamp duty, is tax owing to the State government for the purchase of land or property. Stamp duty is paid by the buyer. No stamp duty is payable by the seller. The amount payable is dependant on the purchase price of the land or property and is subject to any concessions or exemptions that you may be eligible for. Our conveyancing team will discuss stamp duty with you early on, so that you can account for it in your purchase budget.
For buyers, the pre-settlement inspection is a chance for you to make sure that all aspects of the property are up to standard. Check that all included appliances and chattels, as outlined in the Contract, are still located in the Property, in working order and are not damaged in any way. If the Seller had to carry out any repairs or maintenance, check that these matters have been attended to. Most importantly, check that the property’s condition is the same (or better) as it was when you first inspected the property and signed the Contract.
Prior to Settlement, rates searches are completed to understand what you have and have not been paid. If you have paid your rates in advance and/or continue to pay your rates after the Contract has been signed, an adjustment will be made in your favour at Settlement to ensure you are reimbursed by the buyer for the rates that you have paid that relate to the period after Settlement. To make it easier for these adjustments to be made, we request Sellers to stop making payments at least two weeks prior to Settlement.
Not at all. At Enterprise Legal, we pride ourselves on being a ‘paperless’ firm wherever possible. Due to this, most communication happens either over the phone, by text message or over email. Any original documents that need to be completed and/or signed can be express posted to you for your completion in your location.
