What Is The Difference Between A Lawyer And A Conveyancer?
|Your Property Australia||✓||✓||✓|
Let’s take a look at the real differences between a conveyancer and a lawyer (not the boring ones that most conveyancing businesses and law firms will tell you!)
WHO IS HANDLING YOUR FILE?
The most important thing to know is who will be handling your file. If you are using a large law firm, chances are that a lawyer won’t be doing the actual work. They will be supervising a paralegal or conveyancer.
If you’re using a conveyancer then you save money by being one of the many files they will be handling at the same time.
At Your Property Australia we are the sweet spot between the big city law firm and overworked conveyancer.
We offer an affordable, quality legal service where you will have the same point of contact throughout the file.
HOW MUCH DO THEY CHARGE?
Conveyancers traditionally charge less than a lawyer. They are usually priced a couple of hundred dollars less and are ‘licenced’ by their own authority. The reality is conveyancers need the file to go smoothly to make a profit.
Lawyers are officers of the court, and have a duty that extends beyond their employment contract to uphold the law. At a minimum they have completed a law degree and practical legal training to be admitted to practice.
EVERYONE LOVES TO SAVE MONEY. BUT YOU NEED TO PUT IT INTO PERSPECTIVE.
If you have just purchased a new home for $650,000 then the difference in price between a lawyer and a conveyancer is approximately 0.03% of the total purchase price.
