GOLD COAST CONVEYANCER
What We Do
MAP Lawyers Gold Coast Conveyancer
The process of buying or selling a property is a notoriously stressful time and made all more difficult with tedious paperwork and legal jargon. Combine that with the back and forth between third parties, calculating the correct rates and taxes, adhering to strict timelines, and you’ll find the deed transfer process costly and time-consuming. At MAP Gold Coast Property Lawyers, we can remove the stress of a property transaction by providing property legal advice, preparing documents, and conduct searches on the property. We also organise the settlement and liaise with your bank or mortgage broker to provide a smooth settlement process.
If you need a Gold Coast Conveyancing Solicitor who understands local Queensland property law, contact MAP Gold Coast Property Lawyers at email@example.com or call us on 1300 680 584 for a fixed price quote.
Why choose MAP Lawyers as your Gold Coast Conveyancing Lawyer?
People in the know
Lets face it, conveyancing is not particularly exciting, until it all goes wrong. You want to make sure you have the right people on the job to ensure a transaction goes through smoothly and when issues do arise, you are supported with the knowledge you need to make decisions. We have a combined 22 years of practising experience in property law. Importantly, all of our matters are handled by qualified solicitors with expertise in conveyancing (no paralegals, administrative assistants of unqualified ‘legal practitioners’ running your files here!).
Client care (because we do)
gone are the days of sitting in a stuffy law office and having to put up with complicated legal jargon. Equally, we are not so impersonal that you cannot pick up the phone and talk to a real person (and the same person!). We are friendly, knowledgeable and will explain the process and any issues in a user-friendly way. Don’t take our word for it – check out reviews on Google to hear what our clients have to say!
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.
You will not find a more committed and reliable team to assist you with your conveyancing than the team at Map Lawyers – let us prove it to you!
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
Are you looking to buy a home in the Gold Coast? We can help streamline the transaction process by preparing and lodging documents and arranging settlements on your behalf. A Gold Coast conveyancing solicitor can also check for any unpaid rates of unresolved disputes on the property and review your contract of sale. Though you can purchase conveyancing kits to do yourself, you run the risk of making a legal slip which could cost you a substantial amount of money and affect the process of buying a home.
It’s worth leaving the settlement arrangement to a professional who can act as an intermediary on your behalf. If you’d like a free quote, you can submit details on our property buying online form.
Selling a home
Arranging a settlement yourself may seem like a more cost effective option but it can leave you open to a lot of legal troubles. A Gold Coast conveyancer has an in-depth understanding of Queensland real estate and can act on your behalf to discuss details of the settlement with the buyer’s representative. As there are fewer risks with selling property, the fees involved with hiring a Gold Coast Conveyancer will be cheaper.
If you’d like a fixed price quote for your property, fill out our property selling online form and one of our Gold Coast property lawyers will get in touch shortly.

What is a Conveyancer?
A conveyancer is a professional who deals with the buying and selling of property. They offer guidance on the settlement process, and can help you prepare documents, conduct checks on the property (i.e. encumbrances) and discuss agreements with the other side’s solicitor on your behalf.

You can expect a Gold Coast conveyancing lawyer to handle the following:
- Review sale contract
- Advise you on your legal obligations
- Prepare and certify documents
- Monitor to see if contract obligations are met
- Calculate rates and taxes
- Prepare for settlement
- Attend settlement on your behalf
