Whether you’re a first home buyer or you’re looking to sell your home, you will need to undertake a conveyancing process. There are a few things to consider when choosing the best conveyancing Solicitor, and this decision can be the difference between a stress free transaction or a stressful one. Here’s what we advise you should look for:


Whilst it may be easy to shop around for your conveyancing needs, especially when it comes to the high costs associated with buying your first home, we suggest you choose a Solicitor that is based locally to where you are buying/selling your home. By hiring a Solicitor that is local to the area, they are likely to have knowledge of current developments taking place and news that can affect the transaction.

Hills Solicitors have been in Maitland since 1894, so we have the highest level of local knowledge that simply cannot be found elsewhere. This local experience and knowledge means you benefit from experts in not just conveyancing but also the local area.

Further, by choosing locally there is the ability to visit the conveyancing Solicitor immediately If anything urgently changes during the transaction. They will also be able to attend the property within a short time period as requested. All combined, it can result in the transaction being completed a lot quicker than other options online or based elsewhere. If you’re buying or selling locally, the conveyancing team at Hills Solicitors possess knowledge of Newcastle, Maitland and the greater Hunter Valley. Our office is located in the heart of Maitland for easy accessibility.


Buying or selling your home is a daunting process for most and is often one of the most important decisions you’ll make. Ensuring you can count on your conveyancing Solicitor to answer any questions, take care of the contract and address any queries within a timely manner is optimal.

The team at Hills Solicitors is passionate about building client relationships based on trust. This process requires high attention to detail to ensure the conveyancing process is looked after from the buying/selling stage all the way to the settlement stage.

Hills Solicitors has been a part of the Maitland, Newcastle and Hunter Region community since 1894, and since those early days we have built a highly experienced and dedicated team of conveyancing solicitors and support staff.

Make sure when you are buying or selling property you place your trust in the hands of Hills Solicitors.

Experience and Expertise

As discussed in our previous blog post about the benefits of using a conveyancing Solicitor, a conveyancer specialises in property law and delivers conveyancing services only. On the other hand, a Solicitor not only understands property law, but they also have a wealth of knowledge on other legal factors that can affect the conveyancing process or be utilised afterwards.

A Solicitor will understand the depth of contracts and engage in dispute management where necessary. The team at Hills Solicitors can offer services in other matters related to the conveyancing process such as tax implications and how future divorce could impact home buying/selling.
