What is conveyancing?


Conveyancing is the legal process behind every house sale and purchase. Although you can manage the legal side of a property transaction yourself, for convenience and peace of mind, most people choose to use a solicitor or specialist conveyancing firm.

Every house purchase and sale is different but in general a conveyancer will manage things like:

  • Dealing with the Land Registry
  • Stamp duty charges and payments
  • Collecting and transferring funds
  • Providing legal advice and recommendations
  • Drawing up and assessing contracts
  • Conducting local searches
