Conveyancer vs Solicitor (which is best?)

Should I use a conveyancer or solicitor?

Conveyancer vs Solicitor. Which should you choose?

This is ultimately your decision.

But there are a number of things to consider.

Conveyancers cannot assist with legal issues.

Solicitors can do your conveyancing AND assist with legal matters.

Why does this matter?

Issues can arise during a conveyancing transaction that can require a lawyer.

Including litigation, compensation claims, misrepresentations, interpretations of leases and legal restrictions on the title of a property.

A lawyer can also assist in other legal matters that may arise in your future.

Such as family law, commercial law, criminal law, etc.

So it could be beneficial to hire a solicitor for your conveyancing needs.

Are you buying or selling property in QLD?

You’ll need a law firm.


It is illegal in Queensland to have conveyancing companies owned by Licensed Conveyancers. All paid conveyancing work in Queensland must be done by a Law Firm.

Why are conveyancers cheaper than solicitors?

This is not always the case.

Some conveyancing solicitors offer very competitive fees.
