The difference between conveyancers and solicitors

Hopefully this guide has helped you gain a stronger understanding of what conveyancers do and why they are important.

The next questions you may be asking are, “What’s the difference between a conveyancer and a solicitor? When should I contact a conveyancer, and when should I contact a solicitor?”

Conveyancers typically specialise solely in property law, and solicitors can potentially be experts in other aspects of law. As an example, one may consult a conveyancer to purchase a new property in Noosa, whereas one may consider engaging a solicitor for a more intricate matter, such as a transaction that would require your attendance in court, or a transaction with tax complications.

How about fees? Generally, conveyancers have the potential to be more affordable than engaging in a solicitor. Therefore, you may consider engaging conveyancers for simpler, more straightforward transactions, and work with solicitors for more complicated deals.

Note that this is just a general guide and we recommend speaking with a conveyancer or solicitor about solutions to your particular situation.
