If you are wondering who you should trust with your residential conveyancing here are 5 reasons why you should choose Johnston Withers Lawyers & Conveyancers:

We have a personable service to ensure the individual requirements for every situation are taken care of at the highest standard.
2. One Stop Shop for registered conveyancers & legal advice
Johnston Withers Lawyers and Conveyancers have a highly expert and trained team of registered conveyancers who manage all types of conveyancing files. We understand most residential settlements do not require legal intervention however when the need does arise we have a team of experienced property lawyers who can be briefed on the matter in an instant.
It can be advantageous for conveyancing clients to seek legal advice on family trust, farming succession, matrimonial and mode of tenancy issues. When these instances arise you can be assured that our property and family lawyers will work closely with our registered conveyancers to ensure a cost effective outcome without the need to brief an outside law firm.
With lawyers on hand this also means that any statutory declarations required as part of the conveyancing transaction or waiver of cooling off rights can be completed in house and you won’t have to make a separate visit to a Justice of the Peace. In the unlikely event of a contractual dispute our expert property lawyers can step in to resolve the issues without the need to take the matter elsewhere.
3. Our flat fee with no hidden surprises
It is often difficult to navigate your way through conveyancing quotes. Many Conveyancers have multiple fees including a fee for conveyancing, a fee for liaising with your lender, a fee for Verification of ID, a fee for file administration and so on. At Johnston Withers we take care of your residential conveyance for a flat fee of $935* inclusive of GST, there are no hidden surprises when you receive your settlement statement.
