Conveyancing & Property Law

When you’re looking at buying, selling or leasing property, having an experienced property lawyer and/or conveyancer is critical. We can provide both services; property law and conveyancing, all under the same roof.

What’s the difference between a conveyancer and a property lawyer?

A conveyancer generally assists in the process of conveying the title to a property, from the seller to the buyer.

A property lawyer goes further by advising on:

  • who the buyer should be;
  • the tax and duty issues arising for the seller and the buyer; and
  • consideration and advice on issues that may affect the value or enjoyment of the property.

We have conveyancers in our practice who work under the supervision of our property lawyers.
