Our professional settlement fee for the purchase of Perth and Western Australian properties is $850.00, which includes GST and office disbursements.
If you are not applying for finance for your purchase, our settlement fees are reduced to $790.00, as this usually results in less work for us.
Statutory costs and disbursements are fees which are incurred by us on your behalf and are charged in addition to our settlement fee. An estimate of these can be found below.
If you are comparing quotes for your settlement, make sure you check what is included in the fees you have been quoted. Unfortunately it is common for an attractive set price fee to exclude services that are necessary in effecting your settlement.
If you have been quoted a price lower than ours, provide us with a copy of a genuine quote and we will beat it by 10%.
