What is residential conveyancing?

In a nutshell, conveyancing is the process of transferring the ownership of residential property from one person to another.

Typically a sale or purchase will include preparing a contract, investigating title, searches, exchange of contracts, payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax and registration at HM Land Registry.

Most people use a law firm to do the work for them as real estate law can be a complicated business and is governed by property, mortgage and common law. If a mortgage loan is involved, you will need a lawyer.

What are property searches?

What are they and what do they mean for you? Are they necessary?

These are not usually something you come across unless you are involved in buying and selling a property but they are standard for residential conveyancing. There are a variety of searches available which not only provide information about a property but some will provide details about land in the area.

The purpose of the searches is to discover information which may impact on your decision to buy the property.

If you are buying with a mortgage, you will need to have some searches and reports. Even if you don’t need a mortgage we think you should have searches to protect your investment.
