    Hi folks,
    Love the new forum.

    I'm a Sydneysider buying in Queensland.

    This is my first purchase interstate.
    I'm not sure if I can use my conveyancer in Sydney to sort out the Brisbane property.

    Will I need to find a Queensland based conveyancer?
    Any recommendations? (North Brisbane area).

    Cheers :)

    Hiya

    Prob best to use a local - Darryl and his team from Certus Legal are quite good.

    Cheers

    There are many NSW lawyers who can do the conveyancing in QLD, but no conveyancer can because of registration issues.

    Correct. Conveyancing is restricted to Australian Legal Practices only in QLD. So your Sydney lawyer can (just make sure they do it regularly because it is very different process)

    Each state has its own property & conveyancing acts. Best to use a local lawyer. (Your Sydney guy will probably contract it to someone there anyways ).

    +1, it's possible they will know something only a local would pick up.

    I strongly recommend you use someone Queensland based..

    ABKJ Gold Coast Lawyers - Amber Page is very good.

    Property transfer in QLD requires a lawyer, not a conveyor. Most legal firms have a conveyor working under instruction from a lawyer.
