Andrew Wallace Legal | Sunshine Coast Lawyers

What We Do

We provide our clients with exceptional service and experience in a number of legal areas including Conveyancing, Business and Personal matters.


We have acted on many hundreds of conveyances of property including: - residential, rural, commercial and ‘off the plan’ vacant land and home unit transactions throughout Queensland for local, Queensland, Interstate and Internationally based clients.

Your conveyancing is entrusted to an experienced lawyer who develops a close working relationship with you. You will not be passed from conveyancer to conveyancer nor represented by a company which is supervised by a non conveyancing lawyer or acts for both Seller and Buyer (at the same time) or takes its instructions primarily from the selling agent. All of these common practices run contrary to our ethical responsibilities as a legal practice.

We are able to settle your transaction either in the traditional “manual’ way or ‘electronically’ through PEXA via our Settlement partners Infotrack Property Services Pty Ltd. We utilise their size and sophisticated encrypted systems including Settle It, Secure Exchange, Web VOI and Sign It together with our own Web Portal to ensure secure access to your documentation and other important information. We do not conduct a Trust Account, for this reason, preferring to utilise InfoTrack’s high end encrypted systems to ensure that your financial information and resources are protected at the highest level possible.

We can also assist you with Family Transfers of property including associated advice and Loan documentation where appropriate.

For Buyers

We are able to provide advice on your DraftContract and appropriate ‘Special conditions’  in order to protect your what is likely to be amongst the most important Investment decisions you will make. If you have already signed a contract, then we will takes steps to ensure that you can make a fully informed decision to proceed - whether it relates to your Pest & Building Inspection, Finance application or ‘Due Diligence’ inquires.

We will advise you regarding grants and Stamp duty concessions available to you and coordinate with your broker and/or financial institution to ensure settlement occurs on time.

"I have known Andrew Wallace for over twenty years.  He has helped with my will, Enduring Power of Attorney, Advanced Health Care Plan, and the recent sale of my townhouse in Peregian Beach and the move to take up residence in a retirement village in South Australia.  Andrew’s no-nonsense approach certainly gets things done.  He went into bat quite strongly when my buyer needed to change the date of settlement, which could have thrown my plans into disarray, especially moving interstate during a pandemic. I would recommend Andrew to anyone seeking legal assistance"
