Conveyancing FAQs

Everything you need to know about property conveyancing

1.    What are the differences between a lawyer, a conveyancer and a paralegal?

Conveyancers are licensed to perform the administrative work associated with a property transaction. If legal advice or assistance is required in relation to a conveyance, a conveyancer will need to refer you to a qualified lawyer. Lawyers are trained and legally qualified to perform all legal and administrative work associated with a conveyance.

Many lawyers however, do not personally handle conveyancing matters and instead, delegate them to paralegals. Paralegals are neither licensed by a professional body nor legally qualified and is commonly therefore, a poor choice. 123 Conveyancing only uses lawyers for your conveyance. We do not sacrifice quality in order to be cost competitive.
