About Robertson Conveyancing

About Us

Robertson Conveyancing is Fully Licensed under the Conveyancers Act 2006.

Conveyancers Act 2006

From 1 October 2008, it is a breach of legislation for a person who is not a Licensed Conveyancer or legal practitioner to undertake conveyancing work.

You can now be confident when using a Licensed Conveyancer that your Conveyancer will:

  • be licensed by the Business Licensing Authority
  • be properly qualified and experienced
  • be covered by a prescribed level of professional indemnity insurance
  • disclose all costs and any commissions received to clients
  • actively supervise their conveyancing business
  • have their trust accounts audited annually
  • contribute to the Victorian Property Fund to compensate consumers who lose money because of fraudulent use of moneys held on trust.

It is also important to note, that currently there are two types of Licences available and these are:

  • a Full Licence - where a Conveyancer can undertake conveyancing and legal work and provide legal advice in connection with a conveyancing transaction under the Conveyancers Act 2006.
  • a Provisional Licence - where a Conveyancer can undertake conveyancing work but cannot undertake legal work or provide legal advice in connection with a conveyancing transaction under the Legal Profession Act 2004. A Provisional Licence basically allows a Conveyancer to continue operating as they do now with a supervising solicitor. A Provisional Licence will expire after 5 years and a Full Licence must be obtained.
