What is conveyancing?

The legal process of transferring property from one owner to another is known as conveyancing. A conveyancing solicitor can help ensure a seamless process, whether you’re purchasing your first home, selling a home, switching mortgages or transferring ownership.

It is generally not recommended that you handle your own conveyancing if you’re not professionally qualified.
The conveyancing procedure is quite complex, and errors can be costly. Using a licenced property solicitor is the best approach to take.


Benefits of Conveyancing Solicitors

1. Provide expert legal counsel

Buying and selling a home can be complicated if not handled by professionals. Conveyancing specialists are well-versed in the legal sector’s complexities and are knowledgeable in all aspects of the conveyancing process.
Our solicitors at CTT Legal can provide you with expert guidance to help you make informed decisions every step of the way.


2. Handle contracts

A conveyancing solicitor can carefully review the draft contract and identify any areas that need further investigation. For example, you may need to look into whether a property is a leasehold or a freehold.


3. Document preparation

One of the essential tasks a solicitor will perform for you is document preparation. Whether you’re selling or buying, your solicitor will inform you about the documents required to complete the conveyancing process.


4. Conduct property searches

Property searches (also known as conveyance searches) are inquiries made by your solicitor to learn more about a property you’re considering buying.

Property searches enable you to learn everything about the house and its surroundings. This added knowledge will give you peace of mind before buying your home, ensuring you don’t get any unpleasant surprises afterwards.

Having these searches completed will give you a strong negotiation position when buying property. Moreover, information acquired from your property searches allows you to examine the issues that may cause you to reject the sale.
