A Rewarding Career

Conveyancers enjoy a stimulating and rewarding career. The profession is ideally suited to those with an eye for detail and an interest in the law and helping people.

Conveyancers are qualified professionals that specialise in all aspects of property dealings. The role of a conveyancer is to assist consumers to smoothly and successfully complete the sale and purchase of real estate and any other property transactions that create, vary, transfer or extinguish property title. Suitably qualified, licensed conveyancers may also deal with the sale and purchase of businesses.

Due to the legal knowledge, skills and expertise required to conduct conveyancing transactions, a number of key requirements must be met before you can practise as a conveyancer.

To become a licensed conveyancer you must meet requirements for both experience and qualifications.  These requirements are on the Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV) website and can be found here.

Individual licences and company licences are issued by the Business Licensing Authority (BLA) and they can be contact on 1300 135 452 or here.

Regulation of conveyancers is by CAV.  If you have a complaint against a conveyancer you can find a complaint form here or ring 1300 55 81 81.
