What is conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the legal term for transferring ownership of property in regard to both buying property and selling property. A solicitor will help with conveyancing in a number of ways, by handling contracts, giving legal advice, carrying out local council searches, dealing with any land registry enquiries and transferring funds to pay or get paid for the property. Conveyancing involves all the legal aspects of transferring the ownership of a property from a seller to a buyer.
Why choose a solicitor over a conveyancer?
Properties can be very expensive. Therefore, when it comes to buying or selling one, it is essential to be certain exactly what you are buying or selling in the eyes of the law. As you can see above there is a lot of work that goes into buying or selling a property. During this process there are some phases that have the potential to create some legal issues. That is where the benefit of having a solicitor taking care of your conveyancing needs comes into play. Licenced conveyancers are specialised in property and are very good at what they do, however they cannot deal with the potential complex legal issues that one could run into when buying or selling property.
