A NSW solicitor is a professional who handles the legal documentation and preparation for people making property transactions in New South Wales.

We have a couple of recommended conveyancers that can help you in reviewing your Contract of Sale, help you to understand your rights as a buyer or seller, and facilitate a smooth settlement process.

  • Bessell

    I’m buying out my ex-partner so I just want to know if I have to speak with a solicitor or a conveyancer or can I skip that?

  • Hey Bessell,

    There can be complex family law involved when it comes to buying out your ex-partner. A qualified professional solicitor who specialises in family law can help you immensely such as helping confirm whether or not stamp duty will be applicable in the transfer of ownership. So unless you’re completely sure of what you’re doing, it’s highly recommended that you speak with a solicitor or conveyancer.

  • Morrison

    Ok so a conveyancer can cost me up to $2,000. What about you guys? How much will I need to pay your brokers?

  • Hi Morrison,

    Our services are free in most cases because we’re paid by the bank for bringing them the business that would have otherwise been brought by their staff. However, there are some situations where we charge some fees, e.g. when you’re borrowing less than $200k, you have a very complicated situation or loan, or you plan to pay off the loan within 2 years of getting it. Please check out the fees page if you’d like details:
