“Duncan Solicitors look for ways to make legal services more valuable to clients. Duncan Solicitors give clients more than they pay for.”
We are a boutique law firm with experience in both NSW and QLD real estate conveyancing procedures.
Buying or selling a home, we offer you personalised service carried out by your solicitor to help you with what is often a very complicated and technical process. We do not use paralegals or third parties. You will always confer with the solicitor in charge of your file.
Real Estate transactions are usually the largest financial transaction that most Australians will make. We recognise this and ensure that your investment is protected by your own personal solicitor. We do not allow paralegals or secretary’s to run or touch your file.
When purchasing a property, we provide advice in respect to:
- Pest and building reports.
- A strata title report.
- Government enquiries.
- Council rates, building consents and general enquiries.
- Contract conditions including cooling off periods, finance clauses and special conditions.
We thoroughly check the Contract with particular attention to, the ‘Deposited Plan’, easements, covenants, community management statements, restrictions or any adverse circumstances that are going to affect your enjoyment of the land.
These are but a few of the issues where you need professional assistance to protect your rights.
We will advise you on your loan documentation and your legal responsibilities that follow the mortgage.
If selling a property in NSW, we provide expert assistance in drafting of the contract with attention to making disclosures about the property that may affect title and appropriate disclosures about unapproved development or structures on the land. If selling a property in QLD the real estate agent provides a contract usually produced by the Real Estate Institute of Queensland or the Law Society of QLD.
When a purchaser is found, we can facilitate the process forward to settlement with the least fuss and inconvenience to you including discharge of any existing mortgage and all steps toward settlement.
