Good help is hard to find and in order to know how to find it, you need to know what a conveyancing solicitor is and what they do.
A conveyancing solicitor is a lawyer who deals in property law and transactions. They act for buyers and/or sellers of property ensuring the parties’ interests are protected and the transfer of the property is carried out correctly.
We have put together a helpful list to assist you in deciding whether you have found a good conveyancing solicitor:
1. Ensure they are experienced in conveyancing. Think of all the different types of doctors, well solicitors are very similar, there are all different types. You don’t want to find a personal injury lawyer or a criminal lawyer to do your property transaction for you. You need one who is experienced in property law.
2. Ensure they are actually lawyers. There are licensed conveyancers in some states who probably can do a good job with your property transaction however if a situation arises where legal advice is required they can not provide this and may have to refer you to a lawyer.
3. Ensure they are insured. Lawyers who hold current practicing certificates are required to hold indemnity insurance should an error occur during the property transaction.
4. Ensure they communicate effectively. A lot of solicitors see conveyancing work as a hassle, and only take it on to increase revenue. This means when you call or email your query can go days without reply. The innovative firms use all sorts of new technology to keep you updated every step of the way.
5. Ensure you know the price and what it includes.
