Conveyancers are required when buying or selling a property to formally transfer ownership.

Many conveyancers also specialise in conveyancing for international buyers. Becoming a conveyancer is not easy: specific qualifications are required, and you will need to properly screen your candidates in order to avoid hiring someone unqualified. A conveyancer must also have passed the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) exam.

To find a top quality conveyancer you will need to take the time to screen each of your candidates.

Are they polite and professional on the job? Do they finish their work on time?

For each quote you should also be sure to collect a price breakdown, which will alert you to any additional or hidden fees.

One final thing to be sure of before hiring a conveyancer is that your chosen candidate is properly covered with an active professional indemnity insurance policy.
