If you’ve been searching around trying to find how much you should expect to pay for conveyancing fees in Queensland, look no more.
At Settle Easy, whether it’s an explanation of our fee structure or to help you understand why it’s important to get your contract reviewed before you sign this important document, we’re here to make everything about conveyancing simple and easy.
We know that the property journey isn’t always straightforward and there are many considerations along the way. It’s why we work 24/7 to make the legal part of this transaction as transparent as possible.
In simple terms, conveyancing is the legal process of transferring ownership of property or land from one person to another. If you buy or sell property, conveyancing will be part of that transaction.
Our team of expert conveyancers and lawyers are all highly trained professionals who take their responsibilities very seriously. We’ll make sure that everyone who completes their conveyancing with us, settles easily.
There are many stages in the conveyancing process and there is a lot of documentation that must be completed to legally transfer your property – but don’t worry, we’ll do all the hard work to get things sorted for you simply and easily.
Like many essential services, Settle Easy’s end to end conveyancing platform has arrived at the perfect time.

You’ll be allocated someone who knows the law relevant to your property like the back of their hand and that person will be ready to help you when you need them.
At Settle Easy, you get exactly what you pay for – expert conveyancing at an affordable price.
We work hard to keep our conveyancing fees low and affordable because we know that buying or selling property is not cheap.
Until the end of this financial year – 30 June 2022 – with Settle Easy’s expert conveyancing services, you’ll only pay $880 (inc. GST) instead of $1,100 (inc. GST).
We’ve discounted our price because after the past few years, we think everyone deserves a break.
The $880 fee will cover our professional services, but you will still have to pay some out of pocket expenses (also known as disbursements).
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 beach 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 of all conveyancing transactions.
It’s important to know that these out of pocket expenses are not covered by Settle Easy’s professional fee.
Every property transaction is unique and there are different things your conveyancer or property lawyer will need to find out about your property in order to complete your conveyancing transaction.
They might need to learn more about the water rates, planning and heritage issues and titles and encumbrances and these all involve paying for various searches to find out this information.
There may be a need to organise certificates to find out about water meter readings, roads on or near the property, land taxes, things impacting the environment where your property is located or even things related to the owner’s corporation/body corporate/strata title certificates.
So you can see what we mean by out of pocket expenses.
While we can’t tell you right now what these out of pocket costs will be, our expert local conveyancers and lawyers can provide you with an estimate of these costs 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 depends on where your property is located.
Whether you are buying or selling property for the first time or whether you are a seasoned investor who has been down this road many times, Settle Easy does conveyancing a bit differently.
