The world of property settlements can be confusing and frankly intimidating. With lots of money being dealt with and a whole lot of legal jargon, one can feel like a duck out of the water. Luckily, there are people you can hire who can make the process go much more smoothly.
Normally, when seeking legal aid to deal with property matters, people will use the services of either conveyancers or solicitors. Conveyancers are professionals who specialize in the transfer and ownership of property whereas solicitors’ services may include property law but are not necessarily specialized in it. At platinum lawyers, we are known for having Sydney’s most reliable and affordable conveyancing services!
Who Is Cheaper: A Conveyancer or A Solicitor?
Generally speaking, a conveyancer is more affordable than a solicitor, as a solicitor’s expertise lies in a wider range of legal areas and may not specialize in property settlements. With that said, when the legal situation is much more complex, a solicitor will be able to provide expansive legal aid.
How Much Should I Expect to Pay for A Conveyancer?
The costs of hiring a Conveyancer can vary greatly between each business and will inevitably vary from settlement to settlement. In the most general sense, initial conveyancer fees can cost anywhere from $500 to $2200, though fees can also vary (this is just a ballpark figure). At Platinum Lawyers, are Conveyancing services are provided at competitive rates, and we have some of the best professionals in the field!
In addition to the initial fees of hiring a conveyancer may be other fees that a conveyancer needs to pay on your behalf. These are called disbursement costs.
Disbursements can include:
• Searches through various government and public bodies. For example: title searches, roads and land tax searches and planning searches
• Obtaining certificates and legal documents such as Local Council Building Certificates
• Arranging for building and pest inspections
• Administrative expenses including photocopying and attending settlements
• The registering of your mortgage
• Other Costs
