What is Conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the legal side of buying and selling real property, such as houses or land. It involves a number of different aspects, including:
- liaising with many different parties – the representative or solicitor for the other party to the transaction, estate agents, surveyors, mortgage lenders and banks, sometimes leasehold managing agents and freehold landlords;
- investigating the legal title to property, to ensure that the seller has the right to sell it;
- examining the Official Register of Title or any title deeds (if the property is unregistered);
- advising the purchaser on the rights and obligations associated with the property, such as easements (right to pass across land belonging to someone else), drainage and water supply, who maintains the boundaries etc;
- obtaining and considering searches from the local authority, water companies, and environmental consultants;
- asking or responding to enquiries (questions) from the other party to the transaction’s solicitors;
- ensuring that all the legal documentation is properly drawn up;
- making sure that the right amounts of money are paid to the right parties and any mortgages are redeemed;
- registering the transaction with HM Land Registry after it has completed;
Conveyancing solicitors and their teams deal with all of the above, and more. Our conveyancing solicitors and conveyancers are experts at handling the legal side of buying and selling property, land and houses, both your home and larger commercial properties, as well as related transactions such as remortgaging.
All of this was originally called conveyancing because the legal document which caused title for the property to pass from one person to another was a “conveyance”. Nowadays conveyances are no longer used – sadly gone are the calligrahpy and the wax seal, and Land Registry official form TR1 certainly does not have quite the same legal feel to it – but the legal effect of the transaction is the same, and the name has stuck.
