    I'm in Victoria and I'm trying to find a lawyer or conveyancer in Victoria that does conveyancing in NSW. Is this possible?

    I know I can find a lawyers/conveyancers in NSW to do it all, but I prefer an office in Vic that I can go to.

    Preferably northern suburbs

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the reply Terry.

    I've called around a bit, haven't been able to find anyone (lawyer or conveyancer) here in Vic that does it in NSW, a few have told me that I wont find one, I'll need to stick to NSW for a NSW property.

    I ended up finding one there, just thought it would be nice to have an office here in Vic to go to. Guess I'm old fashioned.

    Oh well

    You might have a bit more luck with one who is located closer to the NSW/Vic border – say someone in Albury/Wodonga region.

    Interesting. One of my friends is a NSW solicitor and he does Victorian properties from Sydney – actually I know a second solicitor too.

    Scott makes a good point.

    Yes as long as they are Licensed to operate in the State.

    Like Real Estate agents some Solicitors close to the State border are able to operate across into other States.

    Albury Wodonga is a good example but not as good as Twins Towns in Coolangatta where 1 end of the road is NSW and the otherside is Qld.

    Certainly makes for interesting times when we NSW has daylight savings.

    Cheers

    Not really Richard. A VIC solicitor can do conveyancing for a NSW property for a SA client for example. Not need to be admitted to the Supreme Court of NSW.

    Oh really Terry.

    NSW & Vic operate under the code then. Unlike in Qld when a Qld Solicitor cannot act outside the State unless he is licenced to do so.

    There is mutual recognition legislation in for lawyers, I would be be surprised to find that QLD solicitors could not act outside the state of QLD. They could act in NSW for instance. A NSW solicitor could also act for QLD clients. I have acted for a few interstate clients myself, but I don’t think any were from QLD though.

    Hi Terry

    Was talking to Darryl from Hua Lawyers only this week and he tells me he could not act on a conveyance for any of our Buyers Agents clients we put into either NSW / Vic properties. 

    Cheers

    No doubt this is due to lacking knowledge of the proceedures in other states. I wouldn’t know the proceedures in QLD either. I hear it is a bit tricky with the contract requirements too.

    I have a property lawyer friend in Sydney and he does conveyancing transactions for the whole of Australia. ie every state and territory. He wouldn’t do litigation in another state, but would do property transactions.

    Ok Terry take your word for it although entirely convinced as Darryl is a pretty smart cookie.

    Where is he when we need him to defend us Qlders.
