In this week’s Conveyancing Q&A, Hilary Jenkins shows you how to minimise your legal fees.
As a property investor (i.e. frequent house buyer), how do I minimise my legal/conveyancing fees?
The very first step should always be for you to ask your professional advisor for their expectation of costs if you have not already been given one and
whether there is any way to minimise your fees with them by taking care of some components yourself (such as ordering and reviewing titles, builders
report and LIMs etc). That said, property legislation changes often, so I believe it is always best to rely on your professional advisor to assist
you through the entire conveyancing process so they can give you the best possible advice if there are any hitches along the way.
