Why appoint a lawyer and not a conveyancer?

Lawyers undertake extensive education. Property lawyers are qualified to provide advice beyond the conveyancing process.

Property lawyers are up-to-date with all legislation and understand the complexities and legal issues that may arise in the purchase of a property and can advise you on your legal obligations under a Contract of Sale, negotiate or amend terms of a Contract and deal with the multiplicity of legal issues that may arise in a conveyancing transaction.

Why use a lawyer when buying a house?

In the event that you encounter any legal issues during the conveyancing process, conveyancers can certainly assist you but they are not able to provide legal advice on more complex property issues..

Buying a property may also affect other areas of your life such as taxation, Wills or other family related matters. Lawyers are qualified to legally advise you on such matters.
