What is conveyancing?
Conveyancing is a word used to describe conveyance, which in turn is defined as the process of transferring property rights. In conveyancing, the conveyancer acts on behalf of and usually for another party, known as the ‘disponent owner’. The conveyancer’s role is to carry out all tasks required by law or otherwise necessary to legally transfer the disponent owner’s interest in land from one person or entity to another without causing any breach of contract or other legal violation.
In simple terms, conveyancing takes care of all the legal aspects of selling or buying a house. As there are certain regulations and expectations for selling and buying that need to be met, you will need the services of licenced conveyancers.
The conveyancing process
Conveyancing will begin once an offer is accepted on the property that is being exchanged. Once it has begun, the licenced conveyancer will then draft the exchange contract. The contract will include all terms and conditions of the sale, such as the price of the sale and any other particulars. Your licenced conveyancer will complete all legal checks to ensure your move goes smoothly.
