As the holiday season approaches, it’s essential to grasp the impact of these festive days on property transactions. Sunstate Conveyancing sheds light on an important aspect that often affects real estate dealings: the closure of Conveyancers and the Queensland Titles Registry between Christmas and New Year’s.

Holiday Closure and Business Days: A Crucial Distinction

Per the definitions outlined in standard contracts, the timeframe between Christmas and New Year’s isn’t classified as business days. This understanding is vital as it directly impacts the operational hours and availability of Conveyancers and the Queensland Titles Registry during this period.

Impact on Property Transactions

The closure of Conveyancers and the Titles Registry between Christmas and New Year’s implies a temporary pause in property transactions. As these entities play crucial roles in processing paperwork, conducting searches, and finalizing settlements, their closure during this period can lead to delays in property transactions.
