What is conveyancing?

The legal process of transferring property from one owner to another is known as conveyancing. A conveyancing solicitor can help you in buying your first home, selling a home, switching mortgages, or transferring ownership.

It is generally not a good idea to do your own conveyancing if you are not professionally qualified.

Conveyancing is a complex process that can be costly if done incorrectly. Using a licenced property solicitor is the best course of action.


Benefits of Conveyancing Solicitors

1. Provide expert legal counsel

Buying and selling a home can be challenging when not done by professionals. Conveyancing specialists are skilled in all elements of the conveyancing process and understand the complexity of the legal industry.

CTT Legal’s solicitors can provide expert assistance, guiding you through every step of the process.


2. Handle contracts

A conveyancing solicitor can go over the draft contract with you and point out any areas that need to be looked at further. You may, for example, need to investigate whether a property is leasehold or freehold.


3. Document preparation

Document preparation is one of the most important tasks a solicitor will perform for you. Whether selling or buying, your solicitor will inform you of the documents required to complete the conveyancing process.


4. Conduct property searches

To learn more about the property you’re thinking of buying, your solicitor will undertake property searches (also known as conveyance searches).

By conducting a property search, you can learn everything there is to know about a house and its surroundings. This additional knowledge will provide you with peace of mind before buying your house, so you can rest assured there won’t be any unpleasant surprises.

When it comes to buying a home, completing these searches will give you a strong negotiating position. In addition, the information gained from your property searches can help you examine any issues that might lead you to reject the sale.
