When selling a property, there are certain government and statutory charges payable in addition to our professional fees. These are:
Government filing fee on Discharge of Mortgage (if applicable): $171.72
Local Government certificate: $48.60
Administration fee on LIST search requests (inc. GST): $2.30
Land tax search: $12.15
Title search: $32.40
One of the issues between vendors and purchasers is whether there are any illegal works, incomplete works or outstanding certificates of completion (or similar) in respect of the property. If you are concerned that there are works on your property that may fall into these categories, check with your local Council to avoid any prolonged contract negotiations or delayed settlement.
