What we do


Residential Settlements

Buying and selling residential property is often one of the biggest decisions people will make so it is essential to have the right Conveyancer assisting you in the transaction. 

Goolwa Conveyancing has the experience to ensure your interests are protected.


We pride ourselves in providing a seamless start to finish service.

Property Advice, Private Contracts

& Form 1 Statements

Property sales and acquisitions can be a complex process if you don't have the right advice and documentation.

Goolwa Conveyancing can provide Contracts, Form 1 Statements and advice for all private commercial and residential sales and purchases. 

Commercial &

Industrial Settlements

The right advice and management of the conveyancing process is an important part of the sale or acquisition of industrial or commercial asset.


Commercial and industrial settlements present a complex set of matters to consider. GST, depreciation, CGT issues, lease and guarantee matters, land tax, environment and finance considerations are just to name a few.

Land Divisions &

Community Titles

Goolwa Conveyancing has the necessary expertise to  manage land divisions for its clients ranging from 2 allotment Torrens Title land divisions through to high rise multi use community plan developments or work with project managers or surveyors in the division process.

We are able to produce all documentation necessary to facilitate the issue of titles for all manner of divisions or schemes.

We also provide a consultancy service to give advice on titling solutions to maximise potential of development.

Business Settlements

Business contracts are by their very nature complex and expertise is paramount to ensure that all aspects of a sale or purchase are dealt with. The Fair Work Act, PPSR and the National Name Register have also further complicated the process.

A myriad of issues arise in the sale or purchase of a business. Our expertise will ensure that you get the right advice. 


We provide commercial lease documentation for multi tenanted buildings, as well as single tenancy buildings catering for superannuation funds and Trustee requirements.

We also provide an advisory service to tenants entering into leases, as well as providing all necessary lease documents for any application.
