Conveyancing is specialised – even some qualified lawyers and licensed conveyancers may struggle with the complexities and problems that can arise.  We have over 35 years’ experience, so we know what we are doing and have the experience and maturity to back it up!

All is OK when it goes well but it’s when things go wrong that’s when the difference in standards and experience can appear.  It can be a gamble when choosing a conveyancer – make sure they can match our experience and approach!

We are experienced and put your needs ahead of everything else.  We are completely independent. We don’t charge for ‘extras’ and provide you with written fixed price fees.

Property Conveyancing

Pauline Fay


Pauline Fay has over 35 years’ experience in conveyancing, having started as a junior assistant and worked her way up with various legal firms in Victoria.  She has an extensive knowledge and background in her area of expertise bringing with her experience in running Property Law Departments for international law firms, sole practitioners as well as experience in the areas of Family Law, Estates and Probate, Commercial and Company law.

With experience in large subdivisions and with first home buyers, no matter what her client’s needs are, she always takes personal pride in knowing that they are receiving her best attention to protecting them during the buying or selling of properties.

Her specialty is, of course, conveyancing and property transfers, but Pauline is also experienced in the transfer of businesses, bringing her own personal experience as a successful small business owner who has sold businesses too – she really understand what it’s like and will do her absolute best to ensure your experience is a positive one.

In Words of Our Clients

  • Words cannot express the high esteem and regard in which we hold Pauline at State Plus Conveyancing.  Pauline went above and beyond the call of duty in our recent sale (of our old home) and purchase (of a new home).  With a 120 day settlement, the bank of the people we were buying from was not ready to settle on the day.  So there we were moving van half full, cat hijacked to the parents in law, and looking like we may not own the beautiful new home we had fallen in love with.  But Pauline was an absolute champion.  She discovered the problem and then moved heaven and earth to make sure we could gain access to our new home on moving day – thank goodness! It eventually settled a few days later once the vendors bank got their act together.  Despite Pauline doing loads of pre-checks and balances prior to settlement day, sometimes things don’t always go to plan.  It’s at times like these you thank you lucky stars that you have the right conveyancer on your side.  Thank you Pauline, you were fantastic, we unreservedly highly recommend you to absolutely all comers – you CANNOT  get a better person to represent you.

  • My wife and I were relatively new to Ballarat and were looking in the market to buy a new home. I enquired with my financial team, and they recommended Pauline Fay at Stateplus Conveyancing to take care of all our legal matters. This proved very much to be the best decision we could make. From the very first visit to Pauline’s office to the completion at settlement and even after this with follow ups we found Pauline to be not only so professional, but she made my wife and I feel totally relaxed and stress free. Pauline took care of everything we needed and was always readily available to answer any ongoing questions we had. We certainly would highly recommend Pauline at Stateplus Conveyancing to anyone, and if and when the time comes that we want to either sell or buy another property, Pauline will be the first person we will call. Very Happy Customers

    Stephen & Qiangli Ballarat, VIC
  • I have engaged Pauline on a number of occasions when buying and/or selling property and have found her to always, always, be both professional and pleasant to deal with. These two do not always go hand in hand, but with Pauline she could do no other way. One property she helped me with was for a property purchase in Queensland that was not settled properly, and caused me endless problems. Pauline stepped in as liaison with all parties and resolved the issues promptly, for which I am very grateful. Pauline knows conveyancing and she knows quick and easy conflict resolution which makes the conveyancing side of property seem easy.

    Wendy Albury, NSW
  • ‘We are grateful to Pauline for her work on our recent sale and purchase as she ensured the transaction went smoothly and without stress. Her level of knowledge and attention to detail assisted us greatly in choosing the right home and we appreciated the ongoing contact leading up to settlement, with Pauline making herself available at any time we had any questions or concerns. We highly recommend Pauline and will not be going elsewhere in future.’

    Emily Learmonth, VIC
  • “I can’t believe that you made our purchase as easy as you did.  You were professional, reliable and most of all, you told us what was going on.  We’re really glad you were there for us.”

We don’t just have the experience of supporting our clients – we also have a business and have successfully sold our own businesses.  We really understand what you need and don’t just focus on the paperwork – we focus on supporting you – to get you through the process as simply and effortlessly as possible.

We will sort out the documentation including the lease, the handover period, the financial analysis (by your accountant) of the profitability and cash flow, protecting your trading opportunities, council regulations and all the other variables that arise when buying and selling a business.  We never forget you  – we’ve built our reputation on it!

If you choose the wrong representation you could compromise your opportunities and protection.

We will be heavily involved in the process – negotiating and signing the Contract, transferring the Lease and right through the whole process from beginning to end (and beyond if needed).

What about other approvals such as transferring domain names, business names and all other documents?  We can assist with these too.

We will attend settlement on your behalf so all you have to focus on is you and your business.


First home buyers, investors and even developers often need a caring and experienced hand to guide them through the process, to ensure they are protected and that the process is a smooth and hassle-free as possible.

We’ve been in conveyancing for over 35 years – we know what to expect, how to respond and how to best support our clients, guiding you through the process to settlement.

We conduct searches of the property, make sure the correct stamp duty is calculated and that you receive every discount, entitlement and grant available to you.

We communicate with you in a way that you need – email or post – with clear and simple information to keep you informed along the way.

Buying or selling property can be a busy time – it’s our job to keep you on track and we’ll be proactive in doing this for you by following up when needed – not the other way around!

You won’t even need to attend settlement on the day – we’ll do that for you too.

We have a step-by-step guide and information pack to assist you but are always available to answer any questions you may have.
