Property transactions of any kind depend on important decision-making. Without clear, confident guidance, it can be difficult knowing which decisions are the right ones for you.

You may need a lawyer if you’re:

  • • Buying a property
  • • Buying your first house or a new-build home
  • • Selling a property
  • • Considering re-mortgaging a house
  • • Struggling with a property dispute
  • • Having difficulty with your rental agreement

Conveyancing means the buying and selling process, from putting in an offer on a property, to buying the property and becoming the legal owner. The word conveyancing refers to the legal process that has to happen when a property is changing hands, or transferring a property’s legal title from an old owner to new one.

The conveyancing process can be very complicated and there are many legal processes that need to occur. Hiring a conveyancer means that you save time, as you don’t need to worry about the legal process which can take a long time. You also can be sure that a conveyancer knows property law like the back of their hand, meaning that you won’t be caught out by forgetting to complete a step in the process or meeting the correct criteria.

A conveyancer is there to make your property journey as smooth and easy as possible. They take care of the legal process for you, including:

  • • Checking that the property is legitimate
  • • Checking the property is owned by the person selling it
  • • Preparing a Report on Title, which is a summary of the conveyancer’s research and details on the property
  • • Liaising with both the buyer and the seller to make sure that both parties have all relevant information, including any questions that either person might have. This could include whether the property is registered or unregistered land, where the boundaries of the property are, fixtures and fittings included on the property and whether there have been any disputes with the neighbours
  • • Checking all necessary documents of the property such as planning permissions and building regulation certificates
  • • Finding out whether there are any local authority plans for the area
  • • Registering the property in your name

Since property matters can be stressful and confusing, it’s important to choose a conveyancer that makes you feel informed and reassured.
