What our Clients say about Dial A Conveyancer's services. 

I've used Dial a Conveyancer on at least 4 occasions when buying and selling Adelaide residential real estate, over approximately a 14 year period.

Neville and his team are very experienced and provide exceptional service. For my first purchase, Neville took plenty of time to sit with me and go over important details relevant to my situation and what I was buying - I definitely went into the sale with my eyes opened thanks to Neville's advice. On a couple of occasions, Neville's team have assisted me in achieving settlement extremely fast - within 3-4 weeks.

I'm dealing with them right now on a purchase, and once again I've been delighted with the professional approach and how the settlement process has been made seamless and simple. And very, very fast.

Neville also helped me with a sale transaction once where he drew up the sale contract (I managed to sell without an agent) and provided conveyancing for me as seller as well as the buyer - seamless.

I've mentioned Neville's name to various real estate agents who have asked who my conveyancer is and most agents know who he is, and those who do know him express confidence in his abilities.

The best part about Neville's service is the price. It's absolutely reasonable - most banks and brokers will tell you to factor in around $600-$800 for conveyancing - last time I worked with Neville it was less than $400. That was a while ago - I'm not sure how much it is today.

Definitely recommend Neville Lea Dial a Conveyancer to anyone buying or selling real estate in Adelaide.
