When purchasing or selling real property, both parties to the transaction require their own conveyancer or conveyancing solicitor to assist with the conveyancing process and settlement and title transfer process.
What does a conveyancer do?
A conveyancer or solicitor is a qualified individual who is able to provide advice to the client to ensure that they are meeting their legal obligations with respect to the transaction, and that they are aware of their legal rights under the Contract for Sale.
They will also assist in preparing and/or reviewing the Contract for Sale, mortgage and other related documents.
There are two (2) types of conveyancing transactions:
- Personal conveyancing; and
- Commercial conveyancing
The focus of this article will be on commercial conveyancing. To read about the services JB Solicitors provides in relation to personal conveyancing, click here .

Do I need a conveyancing solicitor?
