Why Use a Lawyer

Home Why Use a Lawyer

Make a lawyer your property partner

The process of buying and selling property should be straightforward, but with many people trying to figure out the law themselves or try a limited service conveyancer, finding a good lawyer is essential to get the right advice.

If you’re in the process of buying and selling property, it can be stressful and it always helps to have the right guidance and advice. Doing all the legal paperwork can be a real headache and can add to the cost significantly.

Many people choose to use a licensed conveyancer instead of a lawyer to save money but as we shall see, lawyers have a wider range of skills and advice and can be an indispensable partner to guide you through the property maze and help you reach your goals.

What option is best for me?

You know the story. A couple or a single professional has saved for years to get a deposit together to get on the property ladder. There are costs for finance, removalists and maybe some small renovations. It can really add up and budgets are stretched. Many people think it’s easy to do their own conveyancing and more often than not run into difficulty and it can be an expensive lesson to recover. Alternatively, the lure of a cheaper offer from a specialised conveyancing firm can on the surface be the best solution.

Specialist conveyancers can offer a good service and they speak of many happy clients but there are many cases where the complexity of the matter means that people are poorly advised or don’t consider the full picture. People often say that they tried to save money but due to poor advice end up spending more than they would have if they’d consulted with a good lawyer first.

It’s important to remember, that if your matter becomes more complex than you realise, and legal issues emerge, you will need a lawyer to guide you to a successful outcome. In most cases, only a lawyer will be able to represent your best interests and give you the right advice.

At Harbourside Legal Services we offer a full suite of services to clients and are your indispensable property partner. One of our specialist property lawyers will look beyond your property transaction and will advise on any potential legal pitfalls, the best legal structure if buying a business and will make sure everything is done right the first time.

Our specialist property lawyers have many years’ experience in running property matters for simple buy and sell of housing, more complex developments, and business transactions. It’s this know-how and guidance that clients return for – the right advice from experts that know.


A skilled lawyer will always look for ways to improve their service to their valued clients. Harbourside Legal Services have introduced e-conveyancing, where much of the legal work can be done electronically which saves time and money for you. Also as part of legal professional practice, our lawyers regularly attend seminars to update their knowledge on current trends in conveyancing and property so that our clients are always well served with the latest advice.

Personalised attention

As your property partner, we will give personal attention on your matter from day one. You are able to contact the lawyer at any time and they will keep you up to date on progress and ensure your matter is in good hands. It is this personal attention that sets us apart from the alternative of doing it yourself or employing an unskilled conveyancer.

As for pricing, many law firms offer fixed pricing or competitive offers to win your business. It’s important to shop around and get the best deal. But even more importantly, make sure you find the right lawyer who you can work with and who will look after your needs now and into the future.

So make Harbourside Legal Services your property partner and as your portfolio grows, your lawyer will become an indispensable resource of guidance and support as you work together to achieve your goals.
