As the third-largest city in Australia – and still growing – property is highly sought after and for good reason. Developments, growing infrastructure, and investment opportunities keep Brisbane a firm favorite for the young and forward-thinking. Buying and selling in the River City is as exciting as ever.
The neighbouring city of Ipswich is only a 30-minute drive from Brisbane CBD. The City of Ipswich includes the suburbs and localities of Amberley, Augustine Heights, Brookwater, Camira, Goodna, Ironbark, Mount Marrow, Newtown, Riverview, Springfield, Willowbank, Yamanto and many other. The GLG Legal Springfield team is here to help you through both – the property buying and selling – processes.

What Exactly Is a Conveyance?
To put it simply, a conveyance is the transfer of property between a buyer and a seller. It covers everything that happens between the time you accept an offer (or have yours accepted) to the day the keys are handed over.
When the title to the deed of a house or commercial building needs to be changed, several things must happen. There is a series of documents and agreements that must be issued, as well as searches and surveys to be carried out. In Brisbane, the busy and rapidly expanding property market is always on the move, and getting through the list without assistance is tedious, drawn-out, and frustrating.
After the initial property survey and inquiries, there are contracts, financial agreements, exchanges, and a final survey before signing the deeds and moving the ownership into the name of the buyer. No matter what side of the deal you are on, there is plenty to organize and legitimize before things can be signed off.
Conveyancing can last anywhere up to three months, which is a long time to be tied up in anything. Each part of the process brings a unique challenge and complications, which can be overwhelming for first-timers or people with other things on their plate. That is where we come in.

Buying in Brisbane
The reasons why a move to Brisbane is a good idea are plentiful. Everything about the city is attractive, from the weather to the tap water. Some of the biggest draws include:
- Schools in Brisbane are amongst the best in the world in terms of revolutionary methods of education. The University of Queensland is considered the third-best in the country. It brings in students from across Australia and from overseas.
- Brisbane’s location could not be any more perfect. No matter what direction you head in, you are heading towards some of Australia’s greatest treasures. The glorious Sunshine Coast and Great Barrier Reef a little to the north, the rainforest below, and the outback to the west, Brisbane is the ideal basecamp for exploring your country.
- Year-round perfect weather and stunning beaches right on your doorstep are enough to make anyone consider buying property in the Queensland capital.
- Diverse, affordable housing is an easy find. The variety on offer from suburb to suburb is unmatched anywhere else in the country, and the price tags are comfortably lower than Melbourne or Sydney.
- Brisbane is regularly named one of the safest cities in the world, so it is an excellent place to invest in property.
Not only is Brisbane an excellent place to live, but you can also find a lot of success renting out your property. Part of the GLG Legal Springfield conveyancing service is to make sure you have all the purchase documentation in order, but also to help you understand what it all means should you require it further down the line.
If you decide it is time to sell for whatever reason, it is equally important to keep on top of the legally binding documents so that everything runs smoothly. People are lining up to buy property in Brisbane, and there is plenty available for them to choose from. Make sure your deal works out perfectly the first time around by bringing one of our expert conveyancers on board.
