What is conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the transfer of the legal ownership of a property from one person to another, although the conveyancing process can be a lot more complex than this makes it sound. In reality it will include the drafting and checking of contracts, a detailed inspection of the legal title and investigatory searches. Once everything is in order and all parties are satisfied, the conveyancers will exchange contracts and complete.
Conveyancing can be undertaken by a licensed conveyancer, solicitor or property lawyer.
