Fees and Other Disbursements

As part of the service we offer, we undertake various searches of the local Council, the Land Titles Office and other relevant organisations for information about the property you are selling or purchasing.

There are various fees attached to these searches.

Often there are also registration fees payable to the Land Titles Office.

Sale

You will need to budget for approximately $250.00 in fees and disbursements in addition to our professional costs.

This includes a fee of $160.06 to register the discharge of any mortgage registered against your property.

If you don’t have a mortgage, your fees and disbursements will be approximately $90.00.

You will need to budget for approximately $600.00 in fees and disbursements in addition to our professional costs. This includes a fee of $197.81 to register the transfer of the property into your name/s.

In addition, you have to pay a government tax known as Stamp Duty on any purchase of property in Tasmania. The Stamp Duty payable varies according to the purchase price and increases as the purchase price increases. Click here to calculate the stamp duty payable.

PROPERTY TRANSFER SPECIALISTS

Tips for vendors

While eL conveyancing will ensure your sale proceeds smoothly, there are still some things you will need to do.

Below is a guide for your assistance:

  • Attend your financial institution to sign any discharge of mortgage documentation.
  • As utilities are personal, you will need to organise final readings and disconnection or transfer of electricity, gas, phone etc services to your new home.
  • Building Insurance should NOT be cancelled until after settlement as the property may be at your risk until that date. You can then claim a refund of any portion of the premium to which you may be entitled.
  • Notify your change of address to relevant organisations (eg banks, insurers, doctors, telephone provider, electoral roll).

Tips for purchasers

While eL conveyancing will ensure your purchase proceeds smoothly, there are still some things you will need to do.

Below is a guide for your assistance:

  • Apply for finance through your lending institution and follow the process through to ensure finance is approved by the date set in the contract (if applicable).
  • Sign mortgage documents as provided by your lending institution.
  • Organise final readings and disconnection of electricity, phone and gas at your current home and transfer of these services to your new home.
  • Provide us with any funds you are contributing to the property (we will let you know how much we require).
  • Organise building insurance over your new property.
  • Notify your change of address to relevant organisations (eg banks, insurers, doctors, telephone provider, electoral roll).
