What is Conveyancing?

What does conveyancing mean?

Conveyancing is the term used for transferring legal ownership of a property from one person to another. It entails both legal and organisational processes to ensure the transfer is both accurate and lawful. The process applies to both selling and purchasing, release or transfer of equity and taking out a remortgage. 

What is a conveyancer?

A conveyancer is responsible for handling the lawful transfer of legal title on a property. Whilst not being fully qualified lawyers, conveyancers specialise in this practice. They are licensed professionals, trained to carry out both the legal and administrative aspects of the title transfer process. A conveyancer cannot practice in other areas of the law, unlike a solicitor, but they can facilitate legal title transfers at a better price.

What does a conveyancer do?

It is the conveyancer’s role to oversee the transfer of legal title from start to finish. Their responsibilities include verifying the house title, arranging dates for contracts to be exchanged as well as completion. They work closely with their clients to understand their individual needs and timescales. A conveyancer also arranges property searches and updates the land registry with changes to the legal title.

What is online conveyancing?

Online conveyancing works in the exact same way as the traditional method. However, instead of meeting with your conveyancer face-to-face, the process is done online and via telephone. For this reason, online platforms can achieve quicker turnaround times, often at a smaller cost.  

What are the benefits of online conveyancing?

With modern tracking features, customers can see their transaction progress in real time, eliminating the need for chasing. Online conveyancing services are often focused on supporting the customer throughout their transaction. With the ability to achieve faster turnaround times and better prices for customers, online  platforms are becoming more and more popular throughout the United Kingdom.
