Buying or selling a house is universally recognised as one of the most stressful tasks you’ll ever undertake. With more and more people looking to get on the property ladder, it is important to ensure that when you find a property, you’re prepared.

What is conveyancing?
When buying or selling property, the transfer must be done in accordance with the law to ensure all deeds and land relating to the property are received by the buyer. This process is known as conveyancing. Conveyancing encompasses all of the administrative work involved in ensuring a property sale is legally carried out to completion and the exchange of contracts. If this work is not carried out, your house purchase may not be legally valid.
Conveyancing is a complex process, which is why it’s always best to hire an experienced property conveyancing solicitor to carry out the work for you.
