Buying or Selling? – make sure you’re buying the right property!

Conveyancing in Queensland is complex and is affected by approximately 20 different pieces of both State and Federal legislation, contract conditions, as well as extensive case law and practice guidelines. 

Many things in a conveyance may not go as expected, but it’s not common that a seller, trying to sell their property, discovers that they aren’t even the owner.

Chris Meyer, a UK businessman encountered exactly this when he put his three-bedroom flat on the market and realized that the flat in which he had been living for six years was actually owned by his next door neighbour!

It didn’t stop here! Mr Meyer even had a mortgage secured over the (wrong) property. 10 of the 15 flat owners in the same building are now experiencing the same problem! 3 years on, and the residents are still trying to rectify the problem.
