Conveyancer vs Solicitor explained: Which one should I use?

A home in Newcastle - buy or sell your home with RM Property Conveyancing

A very common question people ask us is ‘what is the difference between a Solicitor and Conveyancer, and which one should I use?’

From a conveyancing perspective and the laws relating to buying and selling property, both Solicitors and Conveyancers perform the same role.

Both will assist you in navigating your transaction and will help you navigate your rights and the legal formalities of the conveyancing transaction.

RM Property Conveyancing is an incorporated Legal Practice because we have a Solicitor Director and Licensed Conveyancer Director, however, we only practice in conveyancing – buying, selling and transferring of property.

We do one thing and we do it really, really well.

There is no right or wrong answer as to whether you should use a Solicitor or Conveyancer. If you engage a Solicitor, it may be prudent to know what areas of law they practice in so you know whether they will be available or whether they are out of the office a lot attending Court.

People believe that a Solicitor is more expensive than a Conveyancer. This is not always the case. Obtaining a quote for conveyancing from both a Solicitor and Conveyancer is best practice.

In summary, a Solicitor and Conveyancer can perform the same role and tasks in a conveyancing transaction.
