What is legal conveyancing?. AgentQuote.co.uk cuts through the fog, and explains.
When property, be it residential, commercial or simply land, is bought or sold in the UK, something special takes place.
One can't just turn around and say "I own this house". You have to have proof. Now, being the UK, there are records of property ownership just like there are records for everything else.
The document that proves the ownership of a property is called the "title deed". You may have this piece of paper in a safe, under your bed, or if you have been sensible, locked away with you bank or building society.
If you don't have a title deed, then you have a problem. There are going to be some additional costs to proving that you own the property.
Legal conveyancing is the legal process whereby the transfer of title of ownership is made from on person to another person (and by person, we can mean a company).
The exact process of conveyancing differs from case to case, and describing this process is beyond the scope of this article. We do recommend that you use a solicitor to do your conveyancing, and suggest that you get an excellent quote from our panel of solicitors, by using the form above.
