The latest SA Conveyancing Information Pack, created specifically for real estate agents and for vendors and purchasers is available now.

The guide is a comprehensive collection of information for anyone involved in real estate, or for anyone about to embark upon buying or selling their home.

The guide has been designed to outline clear summaries on what conveyancing services are available for various simple and complex transactions, ranging from standard property sales and purchases through to updating titles for marriages, deaths and changes of name, through to land and community title divisions through preparation of business settlements, and everything in-between.

Updated and loaded to our website annually, this latest edition includes updated links to the current, Land Tax Office (LTO) transfer fees and to the latest Revenue SA stamp duty amounts. It also includes estimates for conveyancing fees for various services, including fee estimates for Land and Community Divisions due to increased interest in in that area.

If you haven’t been involved in a real estate transaction in the past year, you may not be aware of the GST Withholding Tax change that took effect from July 1, 2018. You’ll find it on page 19 of the guide and we’ve also written about it in the past year, in our article: Pay attention or pay a penalty: New GST withholding rules for residential premises and land.
