Formerly known as Jamie West Conveyancing





The process for an off the plan purchase differs greatly to that of an existing property.


Usually, the agent will require that you pay a refundable holding fee of either $5,000 or $10,000 in order to reserve the property.  Once paid, the agent will issue a sales advice document to the developer’s solicitor which will instruct them to prepare a contract for your chosen lot and noting the terms as agreed.


Once we receive the proposed contract, we will normally be given ten business days to exchange contracts.  Should you not exchange for any reason, the holding fee paid would be refunded to you.


Some agent processes do differ however and, whilst paying a holding fee is okay, you should ensure you do not sign any contract until reviewed by us.


An off the plan contract, once received, will generally take 2-3 business days to review.  The review takes longer than a contract for an existing property and is more complex as it will include clauses provide for delays in construction, authorised amendments to the plans, etc.


The cost for us to review an off the plan contract is $275.00 ($250.00 plus GST) payable in advance.  This fee is credited towards our total conveyancing fee should you proceed to purchase.


Upon review of the contract, we will provide you with our written comments to consider in the first instance.  We will then arrange a suitable time to discuss the contract with you before proceeding to request any amendments that are required or desired.  Once a reply is received, if satisfactory, the contract can then be signed for exchange after all other processes are in order.


Our conveyancing fee is for the handling of a purchase of property from start to finish and includes everything in between – often involving the resolution of minor issues in the process.

There are sometimes negotiations or disputes that arise which may require attention that is outside the scope of the normal conveyancing process. Additional fees & disbursements may apply in those circumstances.

Our fees include:

  • perusal of and advice on your contract and negotiation of amendments;
  • attending to exchange of contracts;
  • attending to payment of stamp duty;
  • obtaining statutory enquiries;
  • preparation of conveyancing documentation;
  • liaising with your incoming mortgagee;
  • arranging settlement;
  • preparation of a detailed settlement statement;
  • signing of conveyancing documentation in an electronic settlement;
  • dealing with minor issues;
  • attending to payment of outstanding rates, taxes & duties; and
  • verifying title transfer after settlement.

Our scope of work does not extend beyond the above. We will not start any legal work which falls outside of the above scope, without first discussing it with you.

You should consult with your accountant for advice on tax matters such as GST & Capital Gains Tax.


Stamp duty calculators are located on the Revenue NSW website. Grants, discounts and exemptions are available for some buyers. We can assist you with your application for any of these schemes.


NSW Land Registry Services fees are payable on every purchase. If you are borrowing funds, these fees will be charged by your lender and will be accounted for by them as part of the settlement process. If no lender is involved, these fees will be payable by you on settlement.


Additionally, a PEXA Exchange fee is payable by you for an electronic settlement. If your purchase is not able to be settled electronically, a settlement agent will be appointed to attend settlement and the fee would be payable by you.

  • Jamie was referred to me by my accountant for conveyancing on purchasing my first property through SMSF. He was extremely helpful throughout the whole process, answered all my silly questions and handled settlement like a pro. Highly recommend him and his team.

    Jamie was recommended to me by a mortgage broker when I needed a Strata Report evaluated and he and his team have been exceptional throughout the whole process. This is the first time I've had to use a conveyancer and Jamie provided thorough reports on contracts, strata reports etc and took the time to explain everything with a call so it made sense to me. The team were informative, responsive and just great to work with overall -the process was made seamless with his help. I couldn't recommend Jamie and him team more than enough!

    I’m new to the property game and had no idea that I needed a conveyancer when buying a first home so Jamie West was referred to me by my mortgage broker and I’m super grateful for that! Jamie has a wealth of knowledge and was always so helpful to answer all my questions. I really appreciate the support and guidance that I received at every step of the way and I absolutely would not hesitate to recommend Jamie and the team at Same Day Convenyancing!

    I have had the pleasure of working with Jamie and the team at Same Day Conveyancing, and I must say, they are the best conveyancers I have ever dealt with. Their handling of my property sale was incredibly efficient, with timely communication and valuable advice throughout the process. Being a Mortgage Broker myself, I have confidently recommended Same Day Conveyancing to my clients, and each one of them has been exceedingly pleased with their service. What sets them apart is their proactive approach; unlike other conveyancers who tend to leave things to the last moment, Jamie and the team ensure that everything is in place for a smooth transaction. Their fees are not only reasonable but also competitive, especially considering the quality of service they provide. If you are looking for a reliable and efficient conveyancer, I cannot recommend Same Day Conveyancing highly enough.

As a first home buyer, having Jamie West on my side was a very wise decision. My mortgage broker suggested using Jamie West and his team as they are quote “the best in the business”. Originally I engaged the services of Jamie West in late 2019 – for a little over a month, Jamie West conducted his due diligence on the property in question, reviewing the contracts and assessing the risk involved which were isolated in the form of “strata levies”. Without Jamie West’s supreme attention to detail, this could have been a less than ideal situation. Needless to say, I rejected the purchase of the property, and despite the significant time and effort Jamie West invested, was charged nothing extra for his services! Only a couple months later, I found another home for sale and restarted the buying process. This home was being sold by a liquidator on behalf of the original owners, which naturally had its own level of complexity. Not once did I feel that Jamie West wasn’t in control. He is the consummate professional, and managed the sale process with ease. I was regularly informed of sale progression and this gave me a great sense of reassurance that everything was under control. Could not recommend Jamie West and the team more highly. You are doing yourself a disservice by using any other conveyancer. To Same Day Conveyancing, thank you very much!

We had a wonderful, seamless experience with Jamie West. Jamie West was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. I have worked with them on a professional level as a broker, and had the opportunity to use them to assist with my personal purchase. Thanks Same Day Conveyancing for all of your help!

Jamie West could not have been better. He made sure that we got through what was looking to be a difficult exchange. We exchanged on Christmas Eve, and the team were great at making sure that there was always someone available. Jamie West was also meticulous going through the contract and dealing with the other side’s solicitors, getting a lot of concerning clauses removed and some that gave us good protection included. Would never consider doing another job through anyone else. Thanks Jamie West.

I was dealing with Jamie West with a purchase of our complicated Company Title apartment and which we also requested early settlement for. Extremely grateful to both Jamie West and the team who went above and beyond to make sure the process was smooth sailing. Communications was excellent, they answered all my e-mails and all parties involved were kept up to date with each step. We’ve had good lawyers and bad lawyers before and Jamie West is way beyond excellent. We will definitely use them again in the near future. Cannot recommend them enough.

Our recent purchase through Jamie West went through smoothly and the whole experience was excellent. Being First Home Buyers we were worried about the process, but Jamie West patiently explained to us each and everything in detail and guided us throughout the journey. His advice, attention to detail and proactive handling of every matter made our first home buying experience just perfect! Thanks Jamie West and Team!
