What is Conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring ownership of property. Conveyancing takes place when selling or purchasing and is essential for the granting of a mortgage. A Conveyancing transaction normally comprises the exchange of contracts and completion, meaning that the equitable and legal titles are transferred. There are three parts to a Conveyance, the pre-contract stage, pre-completion and post completion.
The Conveyancing process can seem daunting and at times it can be quite stressful. The agreement to buy/sell between the parties is not legally binding until written contracts are exchanged. If there is a chain involved you will not be able to move into your home until the seller has secured a place to live and this can take some time. Complications may arise along the way, for example if the searches find setbacks with the property or adjoining land. Steps can be taken to minimise the stress involved. Because the seller doesn’t have to tell you about potential problems the property may have, enquiries can be made and the seller must reply truthfully to all enquiries.
