Conveyancing Fees NSW
By the time you have finally found the perfect property or decided to sell the family home, the last thing you probably want to know about is how much you will need to pay in conveyancing fees.

At Settle Easy, we’ve factored all of this into our offering. We want your conveyancing experience to be as straightforward, stress-free and affordable as possible which is at the core of our mission through our:
simple and easy to use online conveyancing platform

What is conveyancing?
Whether you have come to us to help with the legal process of transferring the property you have either bought or sold doesn’t really matter – we can help whatever side of the ownership equation you’re on.
When it comes to conveyancing – the process of transferring ownership of a legal title of land to the new owner, whether that’s a person or an entity – we are here to help you.
How much does conveyancing cost?
Like any service, different businesses and individuals charge various fees to get the job done.
At Settle Easy, we know that living through a pandemic and all that comes with that has been challenging across Australia’s eastern states – especially here in New South Wales.
It’s the reason we have locked our professional services fee in until the end of this financial year 30 June 2022 so we can help more people affordably ‘settle easy.’
So whether you are buying or selling, your conveyancing transaction will cost $880 (including GST) plus disbursements until the middle of next year.
That’s a special discount of 20% off our regular conveyancing fee.
How is my conveyancing fee calculated?
There are two parts that make up your Settle Easy conveyancing fee:
- Professional services
- Disbursements or out of pocket expenses
Professional Services Fee
You might be interested to know that this part of your conveyancing fee pays for the specialised work your property law expert will need to do to legally transfer your property.
As you would expect, transferring a property to a new owner requires:
- Property law expertise
- Excellent attention to detail.
At Settle Easy, your expert conveyancers have all the skills and experience necessary to ensure all your paperwork is ready to go from pre-contract right up until settlement day.
They’ll also be in regular contact with you and the other party’s legal representatives to nut out all the finer details of this important transaction.
Some people embark on the conveyancing process themselves, but unless you are a property law expert, it’s not something we recommend – there’s just too much at stake when it comes to property transactions.
What are disbursements/out of pocket expenses?
When it comes to conveyancing, the word disbursements and the expression ‘out of pocket expenses’ are used interchangeably by real estate agents, property lawyers, solicitors and conveyancers, but in reality, they are the same thing.
Whether you are escaping to the mountains or investing in an inner city apartment, every property transaction in Australia will incur some sort of out of pocket expenses – it’s just part and parcel of all conveyancing transactions.
It’s important to know that these out of pocket expenses are not covered by Settle Easy’s professional fee.
When we help you with your conveyancing, our conveyancers and property lawyers will undertake various searches to get your conveyancing transaction sorted.
At Settle Easy, our expert local conveyancers and lawyers can provide you with an estimate of what these out of pocket expenses are likely to be for your property, just as soon as we know where your property is located and what sort of property it is.
We can only provide an estimate of these costs because every local council and government body in Australia has different fee schedules for these searches and your out of pocket expenses ultimately depend on where your property is located.
Your out of pocket expenses may pay for things like:
- council and water rates searches
- planning and heritage searches
- title and encumbrance searches
- water meter readings
- road authority certificates
- land tax clearance certificates
- Environment Protection Authority (EPA) certificates
- owner’s corporation/body corporate/strata title certificates.
