What documents and paperwork are required to sell a property in Queensland on the Gold Coast?

Selling a property on the Gold Coast requires a number of important documents and paperwork to ensure a smooth and legally compliant transaction.

Here’s a list of the key documents typically required when selling a property in Queensland:

1. Contract of Sale: This is the legal document outlining the terms and conditions of the sale. It includes details such as the property address, sale price, completion date and any special conditions. The contract is prepared by the seller’s solicitor or conveyancer.

2. Title Deed: The title deed proves ownership of the property. It gives details of the boundaries, dimensions and any easements or covenants affecting the property. Your solicitor will supply this document.

3. Form 22a – Disclosure Statement: Sellers are required to provide a Form 22a Disclosure Statement which gives certain details about the property, such as any known defects, easements, zoning and other relevant information.

4. Land Title Search: This document provides information on the current ownership of the property, title details and any encumbrances or mortgages registered against the property.

5. Certificate of Title: This is an official document confirming the legal ownership of the property. It contains details such as the property’s plot number and plan number.

6. Land Certificate: This provides information about the property’s zoning, planning and development approvals, rates and other relevant details. It’s obtained from the local council.

8. PEXA: Your Solicitor or Conveyancer will use PEXA to facilitate the settlement of your property.

9. Verification of Identity: Sellers must provide their solicitor or conveyancer with proof of identity. This is usually a certified form of identification such as a driving licence or passport. See this article: Verification of Identity for a detailed overview of the process.

10. Form 1 – Transfer Form: This form is used to transfer ownership from the seller to the buyer and must be lodged with the Land Titles Office.

11. Form 3 – Settlement Notice: The seller’s solicitor or conveyancer issues this notice to the buyer’s solicitor or conveyancer confirming the settlement date and details.

12. ATO Clearance Certificate: For foreign residents, and property transactions equal to or over $750,000, an Australian Taxation Office clearance certificate will be required.

13. Leases (if any): If the property is being sold with tenants, any existing leases must be provided to the buyer.

14. Company Details (if applicable): If the property is part of a company, information about the company’s fees, rules and bylaws must be provided to the buyer.

It’s important to work with a qualified solicitor or conveyancer who is familiar with Queensland’s property laws and regulations. They will guide you through the process and ensure that all the necessary documents are prepared and lodged correctly to facilitate a successful Gold Coast property sale.
