Each area of Melbourne and Victoria has different authorities and they all charge differently. Some less, some slightly more.

They may or may not apply depending on the transaction. Unfortunately, it's unforeseen at the start of a transaction.

Prices vary for settlements outside the Melbourne CBD.

Naturally we confirm everything in writing, with our first accompaniment of paperwork.

We then invite you to sign our ‘agreement’ confirming the quoted price as well as your details.

You can expect to pay for basic standard transaction from start till settlement (based on the above pricing and inclusions) for a simple, no extra work transaction. How much extra could I pay would depend on how much additional work you require. Again, if requested or required.

You can request at any time, an account balance! It's price plus parts is the best way to describe our quotation.

Additional work is charged on a time charge basis at a fixed hourly rate, if applicable.
Currently this equates to $9 per minute with minimum 15-minute blocks charged excluding sundries.

Because this is an internet service the only reason the cost is lower than others, is because there is no office open, for you to walk into. Do I need to? There should be no physical need for your presence in our office.

Our initial documents to you will confirm the quote based on the information we have, along with our Costs Disclosure, Terms of Trade, known and or possible costs and charges as well as a list of inclusions/exclusions so you have it all in front of you!

A part payment will be required upon return of our documentation. Balance on settlement. No further work will be done till the part payment has been made along with return of completed documentation. Delays by you, could delay settlement.

We will email you all documents once we have the contract from the agent and or, obtain a signed copy of the contract from another source. We can't start till we have a copy of the contract, so it's important to move quickly now.

On return of your initial information, we shall email some more information to you which will include an agreement of our costs and so forth. Upon your acceptance via return, we complete under that contract to act for you.

Settlements shorter than 30 days can incur additional costs so enquire with us if you have a very quick settlement.

You NEVER need to come to us, we do everything via email, so it doesn’t matter if your local, overseas or interstate!

We hope we can help!!!
