A Brief Summary of Conveyancing
Simply put, conveyancing is the transaction of conveying, (or transferring) property from the vendor to the purchaser. We won’t bore you with all the steps required except to say that there is a multitude of them. What we will tell is we at Wollerman Shacklock will guide you through what you need to do and do the ones we can do for you.
These steps include duties online assessment, dealing with deposits and looking at special conditions. A solicitor can be a conveyancer, but a conveyancer without a law degree, cannot be a solicitor.
The difference is that a solicitor knows the theory behind property law and can, therefore, ensure that you know your rights. That means we can tell you what you can and what you cannot do and can give you your options if things get messy.
Solicitors more generally than conveyancers look at the issues with the property more closely and let you know what they are. Solicitors are also generally better at negotiating terms on your behalf.
The cost of a conveyance transaction will depend on many things, including the type of property (e.g. residential, commercial or farming) and how complex the arrangement between the vendor and the purchaser might be.
