Conveyancing In Brief

What is Conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the 'act of transfer of title to property from one person to another'. In essence it is the legal process of buying and selling property.

Who does the conveyancing?

Property conveyancing by law, must be done by a property solicitor or licensed conveyancer. One lawyer cannot act for both parties, as this would cause a conflict of interest so therefore both the buyer and seller will have their own representation.

What do they actually do?

Essentially the conveyancer is acting on behalf of either the buyer or seller and representing their interests in the property purchase or sale. Their job is to ensure that the terms and conditions of the contract for sale are fair and reasonable and that all of the financial information is correct. The process for what they actually do differs as to whether they are acting for the buyer or the seller.
