Choosing the Right Legal Team for Conveyancing

Conveyancing is a crucial aspect of buying or selling property, and selecting the right legal team to handle it is vital.

Conveyancing refers to the legal process of transferring property ownership from one person to another. It involves various legal, administrative, and financial tasks that require expertise to navigate successfully.

What Conveyancing Involves for Buyers and Sellers:

For Buyers

Title Checks: Conveyancers ensure the property title is clear, verifying there are no legal issues that could impede the purchase.

Contract Review: They review and negotiate the terms of the sale contract, ensuring it protects the buyer’s interest

Property Searches

This includes local authority searches, environmental searches, and more, to uncover any potential issues with the property or surrounding area.
Liaising with Mortgage Lenders: If a mortgage is involved, conveyancers coordinate with the lender to ensure all legal requirements are met.

Handling Funds

They manage the transfer of funds for the purchase, including deposit and final payment.


Conveyancers arrange for the signing of final documents, payment of stamp duty, and registration of the property in the buyer’s name.

For Sellers

Drafting the Contract: They prepare and negotiate the sale contract and any related documents.

Managing Enquiries

Conveyancers respond to queries from the buyer’s legal team regarding the property.
Coordinating with Existing Mortgage Lenders: If there’s an existing mortgage, they ensure it’s paid off and discharged upon sale.

Transferring Ownership

They handle the legal aspects of transferring property ownership to the buyer.
