The Office of Legal Services Commissioner (OLSC) receives complaints against solicitors and barristers in NSW. Disputes can relate to poor communication, costs, mistakes, delays and poor service. If a dispute involves misconduct, OLSC may refer the complaint to the Law Society, Bar Association or government organisation for investigation.

If you want to buy or sell a home, land or investment property you’ll have to sign a sale contract. The legal work involved in preparing the sale contract, mortgage and other related documents, is called conveyancing. It’s possible to do your own conveyancing, however, most people get a licensed conveyancer or solicitor to do the work for them. You can search for a do-it-yourself conveyancing kit online.
