Residential Real Estate

In law, conveyancing is the transfer of legal title of property from one person to another, or the granting of a mortgage.

A typical conveyancing transaction contains two major landmarks: the exchange of contracts (whereby equitable title passes) and completion (whereby legal title passes). Conveyancing occurs in three stages: before contract, before completion and after completion.

So, the sooner someone instructs their solicitor the better. While many may try to be your adviser, only your solicitor is truly independent – putting your interests first. Cost can be a worry too but we can give you a written quotation at the outset to help you budget.

A buyer of real property must ensure that he or she obtains a good and marketable ‘title’ to the land; i.e., that the seller is the owner, has the right to sell the property, and there is no factor which would impede a mortgage or re-sale.
