What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the process of transferring legal ownership of real property or a business from one person to another. It involves preparing, verifying, and lodging all the legal documents associated with either buying or selling a property or business.


Who can do conveyancing?

In South Australia, conveyancing can be performed by either a registered conveyancer or a solicitor. Both are highly skilled and qualified professionals.

In terms of the procedure and cost, there is generally no difference between hiring a conveyancer or a solicitor. In the unlikely event any problems arise during the process, a conveyancer will refer the matter on to a solicitor and you will incur additional costs. Therefore, hiring a solicitor in the first instance may be more economical and efficient.
