What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring property from one owner to another. Whether purchasing your first property, selling a property, switching mortgages, or transferring ownership, a conveyancing solicitor can make the process go smoothly.

If you aren’t professionally qualified, it is generally not a good idea to do your conveyancing.

Conveyancing is a complicated process, and mistakes may be costly. The best course of action is to use a licenced property solicitor.


Benefits of Conveyancing Solicitors

1. Provide expert legal counsel

When not handled by professionals, buying and selling a home can become difficult. Conveyancing specialists understand the complexities of the legal industry and are knowledgeable in all aspects of the conveyancing process.

CTT Legal’s solicitors can offer you qualified advice, helping you make informed decisions every step.


2. Handle contracts

A conveyancing solicitor can review the draft contract with you and point out any areas that require further investigation. You may, for example, need to determine whether a property is a leasehold or freehold.


3. Document preparation

Document preparation is one of the essential services that a solicitor will provide for you. Your solicitor will advise you of the documents needed to complete the conveyancing process, whether you’re selling or purchasing.


4. Conduct property searches

Your solicitor will conduct property searches (also known as conveyance searches) to learn more about the property you’re considering buying.

By conducting a property search, you can learn everything there is to know about a house and its surrounding area. This added knowledge will give you peace of mind before purchasing your property, so you can rest assured you do not encounter any unpleasant surprises afterwards.

Completing these searches will give you a strong negotiating position when buying a home. Furthermore, the information gleaned from your property searches helps you to investigate any issues that would lead you to reject the sale.
