If you’re a purchaser, disbursements you can expect to have to pay are:

- lodgement of settlement notice (~$33 until end of March 2017);
- land tax clearance certificate (~$52);

- rates search (varies depending on local council);
- if the property is in a body corporate or scheme, a Body Corporate Information Certificate (~$92);
- other searches as required (several of which are strongly recommended though not mandatory) depending on the area and nature of the property and your individual requirements.
Real Estate Agents
We often assist real estate agents that provide us regular conveyancing referrals and we ensure that their clients are as well looked after as our own.
We understand that real estate agents want to surpass their client’s expectations through to settlement. That is why we provide direct mobile contact to referred clients to ensure that their needs are met.
This means real estate agents are not left chasing-up solicitors – and is one less thing that agents need to worry about. At Coast to Coast Legal you are in good hands. We know how a good business operates.
If you are an real estate agent on the Gold Coast that wants to provide your clients excellence in service along with a smooth settlement, then pick up the phone and give us a call – you will be glad that you did.
Additionally, we do not charge your client if the property doesn’t settle.
