Conveyancer

Generally used for straightforward property transactions. They will prepare all the necessary documents ensuring the correct legal compliance so that the property can be transferred from one party to another. Usually a good option for a cost effective transaction that is low in complexity or risk.

Solicitor

They are fully qualified lawyers and can handle the more complex and or risky property transactions which is reflected in their fees.
