Conveyancing is a legal term used to describe the legal transfer of property ownership from one person to another. The conveyancing process is handled by a conveyancer, which is usually a solicitor or licensed legal conveyancer.
The term as we know it typically relates to buying and selling houses. The conveyancing process involves multiple stages, from accepting an offer from a buyer to transferring the title deeds of the property into the buyer’s name.
The conveyancing process for sellers is slightly different from the conveyancing process for buyers. However, there are two main stages for both parties involved, which are the exchange of contracts and the completion of the sale.
