Frequently Asked Questions
Conveyancing is the process of transferring the ownership of the legal title of land (or property) from one person to the other.
A typical conveyancing transaction consists of three stages:
- before contract
- before completion
- after completion
As conveyancing is the transfer the ownership of the legal title of land (or property), transfer duty will apply.
In Queensland, transfer duty on land (or property) is usually calculated on either the unencumbered value of the property or the amount you agree to pay (the consideration), whichever is higher. The higher amount is called the ‘dutiable value’.
This means that transfer duty can apply even when no money is paid or the transfer is a gift. Read the public ruling about when valuations are needed for transactions with no consideration (DA505.1). The rates of duty apply to the dutiable value of the property to determine how much you have to pay. Concessions and exemptions may apply to a dutiable transaction, so you may have less or no duty to pay if you’re eligible.
A cooling-off period is a set number of days after you make a purchase in which you can say, “Thanks, but no thanks. I want to cancel my transaction.” If you take the option to cancel your legal agreement, you may have to pay the seller a termination fee, but in some circumstances, it can be worth paying the price.
The cooling-off period is not available everywhere or under every circumstance. In Queensland, you have five business days to back out of a contract you have already signed. You will have to pay the seller a termination fee of 0.25 per cent of the purchase price.
There is no cooling-off period for properties purchased at auction and you can elect to waive your right to a cooling-off period.
