Conveyancing is the term used to describe the legal work involved with buying and selling a property. Conveyancing is normally carried out by either a solicitor or a qualified licensed conveyancer.
What is a Conveyancing
The process of conveyancing is to transfer the ownership of land from the seller to you. There are several stages involved in the conveyancing work, your solicitor or licensed conveyancer will request contract papers from the vendor’s solicitor, undertake various searches such as a local authority search & check the title to the property you are buying to see who legally owns it.
They will then organise the exchange of contracts, obtain the necessary funds from your mortgage lender, and arrange for these to be sent to the seller on completion of the sale. Your solicitor will also deal with the requirements of your mortgage lender and liaise with your estate agent and surveyor to ensure that everyone works together to complete your purchase as quickly as possible
