Are you looking to sell or buy in Gympie? Gympie conveyancing can pose a number of challenges for solicitors who are not familiar with the area. You should engage a local solicitor.
It’s no great surprise to any Gympie local that a flood check when purchasing property is mandatory. Severe flooding occurs on a regular basis and whilst the flood lines are reasonably predictable, the results can be devastating if this is not properly addressed by your lawyer – both in the pre-contract review and during the conveyance itself. Buying a flood affected property may affect your resale and your insurance.
Another issue that is rather unique to Gympie is abandoned mine shafts. A major capping program took place in the early 20th century. There is a potential for an abandoned mine shaft to literally be sitting in someone’s backyard. Even if they are capped, they can sometimes fail, again with disastrous consequences to the property owner. This is such an unusual issue that there is only one other rural town in Queensland is subject to an Abandoned Mines Program and subsequently is not something that many solicitors or conveyancers outside of Gympie would be aware of.
