THANKS would appreciate any feed back.DerekMember@derekJoin Date: 2004Post Count: 3,544
I use a solicitor/conveyancer that resides in the same state as the property. There are some differences in the various state legislations that could come back and bite you if not met.
If you ask around a bit people here will be able to make recommendations in many and varied parts of the country.

welcome to the Forum.[biggrin] I live in Melbourne, have purchased in Brisbane. The law requires that you use a solicitor practising in Queensland. If I had used a Melbourne solicitor, he would have had to instruct the local solicitor — of course that would have added substantially to my legal costs.[thumbsdownanim Using a local solicitor also has the advantage that he/she has local knowledge — before you sign the contract ask him/her their opinion of the property. Although you might get a guarded response, it all adds to the data you use in determining if you have made the right decision.[blink]
Hope this helps.
