Every time a property changes ownership, the legal process of officiating that change is called conveyancing. This process can be completed by either a solicitor or a conveyancer – and the difference between the two is subtle, yet significant.
Many people don’t know the difference between the two. In fact, even experienced property buyers who have transacted many properties in their time may not know exactly what a conveyancer does, let alone understand the subtle differences between a conveyancer and a solicitor.
So: what does this role involve, and why does it matter whether you work with a solicitor or a conveyancer?
The key distinction between these two types of professionals lies in the legal expertise. If you do decide to use a conveyancer instead of solicitor, it’s important to be aware of the differences.
Most crucially, there are certain tasks related to property transactions and real property law that can only be executed by a lawyer. This means that as your solicitor, we can advise you as our client on all aspects of a conveyance, and also on issues that might arise relating to the conveyance.
These could include things like:
Overall, the range of services we provide as trained legal professionals means our services expand into other areas of property and contract law, including tax, equity and deceased estates.
This gives you as a property buyer or vendor the peace of mind that no matter what situation unfolds throughout your property experience, we can offer a full range of advisory services.
