Speaking before the seminar NSW Executive Director of the Property Council, Mr Mark Quinlan, urged the NSW Government to review the size and number of local government areas and institute compulsory amalgamations. The Government cannot continue to ignore the amalgamations issue," Mr Quinlan said. "An enormous opportunity exists to improve the efficiency of local government administration. Ratepayers and users. Conveyancing can be defined like doing the changing in the property’s title from one person to another. While market activity has slowed from its record levels of previous years, overall it remains strong, says Mr Jeff Pond, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Industrial Director.
The Property Council’s strong support for amalgamations is based on the widely recognised potential to dramatically improve service delivery and cut local rates. The Property Council believes that service levels are being compromised because scarce resources are required to fund a diverse and expanding service base driven by increasing customer expectations. And the process needs full concentration to get performed by expert persons to make the process performs in simplified ways.
The Government’s policy can only compromise the standard of service the community demands and deserves. The Property Council urges the Government to actively commission a review of the number and size of local government areas. In the wake of the Wallis Lake Hepatitis A outbreak, the Property Council of Australia has re-issued its call for a private sector solution to the State’s inadequate sewerage infrastructure. The major problem that is observed in the property transaction process is that it should get followed by some rules so that no hurdle will come in between the process to get performed by expert conveyancers.
While we welcome the Government’s recent commitments to enforce stringent quality measures and to provide $1m to upgrade the Nabiac and Coomba parks treatment plants, these measures on their own will not address the problem.Property conveyancing process is performed when one needs to buy a property or sell a property and the process is called for that purpose. Land tax and stamp duty are hidden taxes on consumption and are not generally subject to the close scrutiny of the electorate," said Mr Quinlan.
The electorate typically does not associate increases in land and payroll tax with increased prices for goods and services. Many businesses are already struggling and working off small margins. Does the Premier really believe that these additional costs can be absorbed by business without being passed onto the community through increased costs or the loss of jobs? Mr Quinlan went on to note that "in a recent business forum the Premier referred to the importance of investment and a confident business sector for the creation of much needed new jobs.The main need people realize when they are having no idea in conducting the property transaction process for their buying need of property or for selling a property.
