What is Conveyancing.


Conveyancing is described as “the act of transferring the legal title in the property from one person to another.” A typical conveyancing transaction, whether a sale or purchase, contains two major ‘landmarks’, which are exchange of contracts (whereby equitable title passes) and completion (whereby legal title passes), plus the three stages: before contract, before completion and after completion.


Conveyancing encompasses a multitude of dealings including transfers of land/property, private contracts, and discharges of mortgages, private mortgages, change of name registration, and transmission of deceased estates, matrimonial transfers, Land and Community Divisions of property, transfer of farming property, transfer of water licence leases and transfers of businesses.
