Christmas - New Year Trading

This Christmas - New Year period, we'll be here to assist you.

Whilst it won't be too busy, we will have staff available to help where required.

Please remember that the Titles Office and Courts (and others) will be closed during the break, but if there's anything we can do to assist, we certainly will. The Court’s mandated holiday closure this period covers Monday 26 December 2016 through to Friday 6 January 2017 inclusive.

We also note that the standard REIQ and other mainstream contracts list the period between Christmas and New Years as non-working days, so be mindful in your settlement date calculations.

Our online searching portal will of course be available for you 24/7, subject to provider availability. Sign up now if you don’t yet have a logon.

The team at Atkinson’s wish all our clients and their loved ones a very safe and Merry Christmas!

Thank you for your support this last year, and we look forward to being able to assist you in 2017.

Office Closure for G20 Public Holiday

Due to the forced Public Holiday for the G20 Leaders Summit in Brisbane, our office will be closed on Friday 14 November 2014. Thanks for your understanding - we didn't have any say in it!

We've moved...

We're-movingFrom Monday 11 November 2013, we've relocated to Level 17 344 Queen Street Brisbane.

We've taken advantage of the attractive office prices available at the moment and have locked in a purchase on a strata office.

Our phone, fax and postal details will remain the same.

Please update your records for your settlement locations when they're in our office, and for your couriers or deliveries.

Public Holiday Office Closure - Wednesday 14 August 2013

Wednesday 14 August 2013 is the Brisbane Exhibition Show Holiday, and the office will be closed.

Important News for 2013

New bank account numbers for account payment and trust deposits…new reduced lodging fees…new conveyancing search packages…new online invoice viewing and payments…new instruction templates for your use…

Happy New Year to all of our clients! We really appreciate your continued business and hope we can serve you even better into 2013 and beyond.

2013 sees some accounting changes and exciting new developments at Atkinsons to better serve our clients for the services you want and use most.

New Bank Account Details

Our bank accounts are moving from George St branch to NAB's Business Banking Capital Office Branch, which has necessitated a change in BSB and Account Numbers for invoice payments and trust account deposits. Whilst we have previously been averse to changing account details, the customer service we will receive from a Capital Office Branch domicile will outweigh any short-term inconvenience.

From 1 January 2013, our new account details are as follows:

General Account - for invoice payments:
Peter Atkinson & Company General A/c
NAB Capital Office Branch 308-322 Queen St Brisbane
BSB: 084-004 150206135

Trust Account - for settlement or other funds to be held in trust:
Peter Atkinson & Company Trust A/c
NAB Capital Office Branch 308-322 Queen St Brisbane
BSB: 084-004 150071912

Our accounting package automatically feeds payments into our accounts based on invoice date, so for invoices dated 31 December 2012 and prior, please credit funds to the old account as noted on the invoices.

To expedite closure of the old account and minimise any future confusion, please bring your 2012 invoices into order at your earliest opportunity.

For invoices dated from 1 January 2013, please use the new bank account numbers as detailed above.

For all Trust Account deposits from 1 January 2013, please use the new trust account number as detailed above.

New Reduced Titles Office Lodging Fees

We want to make Titles Office lodging easier for our clients, and have done away with the old 'price per document', and replaced it with a new 'price per matter' structure.

We are really pleased to be able to offer settlement notice lodging for only $11.00 (inc. GST), and other normal document sets at $22.00 per matter (up to 5 docs).

Survey Plans incur an additional $22.00 due to additional lodger paperwork required and the number of registration confirmation statements that are generally returned.

Overall, this represents a great saving on prior pricing structures, and is far cheaper than posting your docs direct to the Title Office, with our full-service follow up included in our fees.

Download our new fee schedule here.

New Conveyancing Search Packages

We're are also very excited to offer an all-new package pricing for your conveyancing search needs.

We don't need to tell you how time-consuming it is to fill out multiple forms and deal with multiple invoices for your conveyancing matters...

Order all your conveying searches via the one form on our website, and we'll take care of the rest.

One invoice. Monthly account. Results to your inbox as soon as they are available. We do the chasing. No GST on outlays.

Compare this to other search providers, and we're sure you'll see the benefits.

Order now via our dedicated order form.

Online Invoice Viewing and Payments

You can now see all your outstanding invoices online, simply by clicking on the link on any invoice we email you. A value added service, free of charge, that helps you keep on top of things in your own time.

New Templates for Settlement and Manual Service Instructions

On our home page, you'll find a link to download settlement instruction and manual services instruction templates that you can use to help make your job a little easier.

We hope you like our service enhancements, and look forward to receiving your instructions.

Like DJ's or Myer, if you find a cheaper price, please let us know and we'll try and match or better the price.

We want to be your first call for all your legal agency needs, and will do all we can to make your job as easy as possible.

Stay tuned for further service enhancements and important news by signing up for our newsletter now!

Email Statement Delivery

We're now delivering our monthly statements via email, direct to your inbox.

In harnessing the power of our accounting package, we can also email your invoices directly, and you'll notice that any invoices that don't require the return of any documentation to you via the post are now being delivered electronically via email, with live links you can click on to view the full details of the invoice.

With the cost of mail ever increasing, delivering our invoices and statements via email where possible helps to save increasing our prices to compensate.

If you have any enquiries or concerns, please contact us.

If we don't have your current or preferred email address, please let us know and we'll update our records.

Intermittent Telephone Problems - Call Mobile

Since our premises move, we've been experiencing intermittent problems with our phone lines.

Telstra continue to work on the line problems.

If you have any difficulties getting through, please call 0418 715 022 or 0407 575 132.
