What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing involves transferring the “legal title” of a house or flat from the seller (sometimes called “the vendor”) to the buyer.

As part of this process, your conveyancing solicitor will help you to answer the buyer’s questions about the property. Your solicitor will also prepare a draft contract of sale to send to the buyer.

Your conveyancing solicitor will handle the exchange of contracts and will then pay off the mortgage (if there is one) and handle other formalities when the sale completes and the property is transferred to the buyer.
