My strongest recommendation for the truly fabulous FitzGerald and Browne Lawyers and highest praise for their legal practitioners I know best, Roland Browne and Mimi Chan. Roland is a uniquely dedicated, fearless and gifted lawyer with an amazing track-record in advocacy and campaigning (e.g., for gun control), plus ground-breaking litigation. Mimi’s conveyancing for my property was professional, timely, thorough and great value for peace of mind. I am sure her migration work is also top quality – plus available in Cantonese, Mandarin and English.

FitzGerald and Browne Lawyers handled my late dad’s estate so it was an easy choice to engage them to do the conveyancing for the sale of his property.  I found them to be professional, helpful and friendly, and most importantly empathetic as this was an emotional time.   I would certainly recommend FitzGerald and Browne Lawyers if you are looking for down to earth, plain English legal advice and assistance.

We recently used FitzGerald and Browne for our conveyancing on the purchase of our property in Port Huon. We were thoroughly impressed with the level of expertise and professionalism demonstrated as well as the prompt responses to our many enquiries. We would definitely recommend FitzGerald and Browne to any persons contemplating purchasing property in Tasmania. Jon and Sharon (Port Huon)

Many thanks for all your efforts and assistance with the sale of these properties. We found it a very thorough, efficient and helpful process thanks to you and your team!

Frequently asked questions…

What is Conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the process of transferring legal ownership of property. Conveyancers ensure that the property is transferred free from unwanted encumbrances, like mortgages or caveats, and that there are no nasty surprises associated with the title of the property. We also arrange for registration of documents needed to effect the transfer of title.
Why do I need a lawyer?
You do not need a lawyer to complete the conveyancing process, but many people find completing the necessary documents and certificate of title searches confusing and stressful. Using a qualified conveyancing agent or solicitor can save you a lot of time and hassle as well as helping to ensure that you do not incur unnecessary fees and charges.
What happens at settlement?
Settlements generally involve the purchaser’s and seller’s solicitors or conveyancing agents meeting to exchange the necessary documents and funds to effect the transfer of the property. If there is a mortgage associated with the property then an agent from the bank normally attends settlement as well.
Do I need to attend settlement?
We will attend settlement on your behalf and let you know when settlement is complete.
How much does it cost?

Costs for conveyancing vary.
