Conveyance

Conveyancing is the legal process of the transference of ownership of a legal title of property from the vendor of a property to the purchaser of a property and should be dealt with by a suitably qualified person or entity.

Some people are happy to appoint a conveyancer where the costs involved are usually lesser however; they cannot give advice on other legal matters which quite often arise in the transfer of property title.

  2. A professional code of ethics and standards governed by law and will also be members of the Law Institute.
  3. Mandatory Professional Liability Insurance and in independently audited trust account in place which provides protection for you the client.
