Forgot to mention price for Askwith Partners. Was about $955 incl GST.
The property i bought is in Ballarat East and one of the advantages of getting locals to do your building inspections and conveyancing was that I was able to get feedback regarding the area and in particular the street. The agent talked it up and all the data I had looked at pointed in the right direction but there must be something said for local knowledge. The guy who did my building inspection knew a lot about many of the houses built in the area and he along with the conveyancer confirmed my research regarding how popular the area is with renters.
