There is a new, SA Conveyancing Information Pack available now, courtesy of Eckermann Conveyancers.

It contains a lot of helpful information for anybody involved in real estate, or about to embark upon buying or selling their home.

This latest edition includes updated links to the current, Land Tax Office (LTO) transfer fees and to the latest Revenue SA stamp duty amounts.

Because this document also includes estimates of conveyancing fees for various services, we have worked through all the items, paying particular attention this year to the Land and Community Divisions fee estimates. This focus on land divisions has been due to increased interest in that area and ongoing development in the processes.

The other main inclusion in this edition is detail about the GST Withholding Tax change that took effect from July 1, 2018. You’ll find it on page 19 of the guide but I’ve also written about this recently, here, Pay attention or pay a penalty: New GST withholding rules for residential premises and land.

The South Australian Conveyancing Information Pack is designed to put clear summaries of what conveyancing services are available for various transactions from real estate to changes of name, business agreements, etc.
