Say “hello” to Elsie, a special member of the team

We are proud of our involvement as Seeing Eye Dogs Australia (SEDA) puppy / breeder carers, and you will often see pups in our office. Everyone here at Adroit Conveyancing is thrilled to support Seeing Eye Dogs Australia and the fantastic work they do.

Elsie joined us in December 2018, as a trainee puppy for SEDA. Excelling at all assessments, at 12 months of age and having such a great temperament the SEDA team decided that she would make an excellent breeding dog for new generations of Seeing Eye dogs.

Elsie is our Seeing Eye Dog and a proud breeder

Treats, tummy rubs and toys… all in a day's work!

Proud mum Elsie had her first litter of pups in March 2021. In between caring for her new puppies, Elsie loves eating treats, getting tummy rubs and playing with her doggy toys.

Elsie had another litter in July 2022, this time there were 9 pups. She did another excellent job looking after her pups. Her pups are now in the Seeing Eye Puppy Trainee program hoping to be future Seeing Eye Dogs.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is conveyancing? Do I need a solicitor as well?

Conveyancing is the process of transferring legal ownership of a property from one party to another. Both buyers and sellers are required to have conveyancing done. Conveyancers are qualified licensed professionals that undertake all aspects of property dealings.

No, you do not need a lawyer or solicitor as well. A Licensed Conveyancer is fully qualified to complete any conveyancing transaction in Victoria. Conveyancing can seem complicated to the layperson, so we are more than happy for you to drop in and see us at our Bendigo office for a chat if you have any questions.


How do you normally charge the fees and costs for your service?

We get paid at settlement and generally do not ask for any fees or funds upfront (the exceptions being sales). Every matter is different, so we do not offer fixed price quotes for conveyancing.

Sure, there are cheaper low cost conveyancers than us but with Adroit Conveyancing you receive professional, competent, transparent and ethical service, and you always deal with the licensed conveyancer. We run a paperless office environment in Bendigo, and have leading software and email correspondence and documents where possible. That keeps our fees and costs for conveyancing down. We don't order unnecessary searches and certificates, but we will never "go cheap" to get the job done.


What qualifications do you have to make you the right person for the job?

I have completed thousands of transactions. I am a Licensed Conveyancer without any restrictions on my licence, which means I am accredited to act for clients who are selling or buying a business, I am a Fellow of the Legal Institute (Victoria) and a Certified Practising Conveyancer of the Australian Institute of Conveyancers (Victoria Division).

Fellows of the Victoria Institute currently have the privilege of being authorised to witness Statutory Declarations and take Affidavits in Victoria pursuant to the The Oaths and Affirmations Act 2018 and to certify documents.
