What is Conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the process of transferring a property from one individual or entity to another whether you buy or sell property. For many of us, property is the most valuable asset we will ever own, so whether you are buying your first home or expanding to a larger family residence, buying and selling property can be an overwhelming experience. A solicitor or Conveyancer can assist you to ensure your financial transaction goes smoothly and ensure your legal rights under the Contract are protected.
