Have you been in the situation where someone asks for a quote of a particular service to be provided but in actual fact what is really being asked is “I just want to check if you are cheaper than the other mob!”
Well, here lies the truth that many small business owners can truly identify with:
Rarely, if ever, will you get the luxury of getting all three at one time when ordering or requesting any type of product or service.
Now, when you are dealing with a very important transaction such as purchasing or selling a home, all you really want to do is to get through the whole process as efficiently and as stress free as possible.
You may not believe this straight away and don’t worry you wouldn’t be the first but it is best to choose your conveyancer carefully! If you want to be looked after, to have someone there to talk to when you need to ask a question, to get an update or even just to make sense of what is going on. Then make sure you pick the ‘fast and good’ option. It will mean you may pay more than ‘cheap’ but you are bound to get the right Quality.
There is a fair share of ‘cheap’ out there. But not many are good and only some are fast. So beware of those companies/businesses stating that they can and will meet all three of the fast, high-quality and low-cost requirements. If “cheap and fast” are your preferred options, then you WILL get what you pay for but in doing so you will be giving up the quality piece of the equation. And in the event of a delay you won’t get the same care about any implications and defaults that could be imposed. This could cost you a lot more than paying for a quality conveyancer up front.
If you are just ringing around for a cheap price just remember that apples may not be apples when comparing. Make sure you get all the fees that are applicable as many quote what they call their conveyancing fee but it may not include a settlement fee, a mortgage liaison fee, a stamping fee and these often get added on later when it is too late. So make sure the quote you get covers everything that you need to pay in the way of fees. Disbursements such as searches, electronic lodgement fees and government charges for stamp duty and registration fees will also be required and should be advised early so that you are aware of what the transaction is going to cost you.
Also confirm that they will review the Contract and Form 1 in the cooling off period and if this service is also included in their fees.
