Why hire a Lawyer instead of a Conveyancer?

Generally, a conveyancer only has knowledge of property law and can only conduct the transfer of property.

If there are complications in the conveyancing process, the conveyancer may not be equipped to resolve those issues and will have to ask you to hire the services of a lawyer.

A lawyer can also assist with other legal issues in the conveyancing process such as tax issues, or how the sale of the property can affect divorce proceedings.
