What’s the difference between a lawyer and a conveyancer?


Buying or selling property is usually the most valuable transaction you will ever make. It’s worth investing in a legal professional to make sure that you get the right advice at the right time.



Isn’t it more expensive to use a lawyer?

No. We provide fixed fee quotes for conveyancing services.

What’s the difference between a lawyer and a conveyancer?

Lawyers have expertise in all areas of property law, whilst conveyancers are licensed to carry out property transfers and are limited to only “conveyancing work”.

One of the main benefits of using a legal firm for your property transaction is that we can advise you on legal matters that a conveyancer alone cannot.

This can be especially important if your sale or purchase:

  • Is high value or carries considerable risk

  • Is complex

  • Is likely to be problematic – such as settlement delays with another party

  • There are legal implications.

When you hire SCL for your home purchase or sale, you get property transaction and property law expertise. We are highly skilled at negotiation, for a smooth and stress-free conveyancing process with minimal delays.
