What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing involves the transfer of legal title when one is buying or selling a property. This involves an exchange of contracts between the buyer and the seller of a property.

The two pivotal moments in the conveyancing process is the exchange of contracts and completion (this is when the title passes from one party to another)

It is very important that the seller holds title and is entitled to sell the property or land. ‘A solicitor can ascertain this by checking the deeds to the property and consult with the Property Registration Authority (Land Registry). It is essential to check with the Property Registration Authority that the land is held in good title.

Moving house can be a stressful experience, ensuring the land is held in good title, awaiting the exchange of contracts and the drawdown of a mortgage prior to moving into your new property.

A good solicitor will guide you through the process, step by step, inform you of developments at each stage, in a speedy and easy to understand manner.
