What We Do

We can act on your behalf to attend meetings and agree on settlements, assist you with documents, and even liaise with financial institutions.

We LOVE property
We can sit there and say that we are passionate about property like all the other property law firms out there, but the proof is in the pudding – we have brought, sold, and developed 10 properties in the last 10 years and we are only getting started! We live and breath property at Map Lawyers, and truly enjoy sharing that experience with our clients.

We believe that our fixed fee pricing for conveyancing is one of the cheapest in Brisbane. See our online calculator for a comprehensive, property specific quote (with no hidden extras).
Buying a home
If you’re planning on buying a home, a Brisbane conveyancing lawyer can help streamline the deed transfer process by reviewing the contract of sale and acting on your behalf to arrange settlements. A Brisbane property conveyancing specialist can also make sure everything listed in the contract is correct and check for unpaid rates or unresolved disputes. Though there are conveyancing kits available, they come with the big risk of making a legal slip that could affect the process of purchasing a home.
It’s recommended that you leave the settlement arrangement to a professional who can act as a mediator between both parties. If you’d like a free quote, you can submit details on our property buying solicitor online form.
Selling a home
When it comes to selling your home, it’s important you don’t attempt to cut costs by arranging the settlement yourself. A Brisbane conveyancer understands the complexities of Queensland real estate and can act on your behalf to discuss the settlement in detail with the buyer’s representative. Typically, there are fewer risks involved with selling property, so the fees involved with hiring a Brisbane property conveyancing specialist will be cheaper.
If you’d like a fixed price quote for your property, simply fill out our house sale conveyancing online form and one of our Brisbane property lawyers will get in touch shortly.

Brisbane Conveyancing Solicitor FAQs
What is a conveyancer?
Simply put, a conveyancing lawyer is a professional who deals with property matters such as buying, selling, and subdividing land. They offer guidance and advice on the settlement process and can help you review contracts, prepare documents, and liaise with the other side’s solicitor on your behalf. In Queensland, enlisting the help of a Brisbane conveyancing solicitor or lawyer is encouraged by the government to ensure you don’t fall victim to legal pitfalls.
You can expect a Brisbane conveyancing lawyer to handle the following:
- Review sale contract
- Prepare for settlement
- Monitor to see if contract obligations are met
- Prepare and certify documents
- Calculate rates and taxes
- Advise you on your legal obligations
- Attend settlement on your behalf
Brisbane conveyancer vs. lawyer – what’s the difference?
In most states, a conveyancer isn’t a lawyer but does have the power to handle deed transfers. However, in Queensland and the ACT, a deed transfer must be performed by a qualified lawyer or overseen by one. At Map lawyers, our team of Brisbane conveyancer experts are all qualified lawyers who specialise in property law.
Do I need a Brisbane conveyancing solicitor?
When it comes to buying or selling your home, conveyancing may seem as straight forward as signing a contract and transferring a deed. However, aside from managing the deed process between solicitors, a Brisbane conveyancing lawyer can take an extensive look through a contract to make sure everything is legal and above board.
This includes making sure there is no claim or ‘encumbrance’ on the property that may impact its value. A Brisbane conveyancer can then handle and prepare all legal documents on your behalf, calculate rates and taxes, and make adjustments to the final calculation if needed.
