Conveyancing Solicitors and Licensed Conveyancers – what's the difference?

A conveyancing solicitor is a qualified solicitor who has chosen to specialise in property transactions. They most commonly undertake residential sale and purchase work, however they can also be involved in commercial conveyancing, lease extensions, enfranchisement and equity release.

They are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, which is the regulatory body for solicitors in England and Wales.

A Licensed Conveyancer is a legal professional who has trained to become a specialist in property law, and most commonly handles sale and purchase property transactions in the same way a conveyancing solicitor would.

As a property lawyer they are highly skilled specialists in conveyancing and as such should provide the same level of service to their customers as a law firm would.

They are regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (the governing body for licensed conveyancing) and as such any work carried out by them should be to current best practice standards.
