What is the difference between using a Solicitor and a Conveyancer?

Conveyancers and Solicitors are both capable of handling a Conveyancing transaction. Conveyancers are trained in the step by step process of the transfer only, whereas Solicitors are trained and knowledgeable in property law in general and so can offer additional services such as Contract advice and can deal with problems arising from the transaction which is something that Conveyancers cannot legally do.
With a purchase or sale of a house being most people’s single largest financial transaction in their lives it pays to have a solicitor onboard to handle any potential problems should they arise.
