Why do I need a conveyancer?

Conveyancing is the legal process involved when buying or selling a property. It can be very complicated, so it’s important to enlist the help of a licensed conveyancer, also known as a conveyancing solicitor.

Frequently asked questions

Who are licensed conveyancers?

Licensed conveyancers are specialist legal professionals who have been trained to deal with all aspects of property law. 

 

How long does the conveyancing process take?

If everything goes to plan, your conveyancing can be complete within as little as four weeks! Waiting for confirmation of your mortgage offer can often slow things down so we recommend organising your mortgage from the outset.

Who can carry out the conveyancing?

A solicitor or licensed conveyancer usually conducts the conveyancing process. It is possible to do it yourself if you’re not taking out a mortgage, but, conveyancing law can be very complex and time consuming - so most home buyers and sellers employ legal experts.

 

What do I do if I have lost my deeds?

The procedure will depend on whether the property is registered or unregistered and how they came to be lost. If the title for your property is registered in H.M Land Registry then, since the Land Registration Act 2002 came into force, this may no longer be a problem. In the more unusual situations, where the title to your property is not registered with H.M Land Registry, the individual circumstances will need to be investigated and specialist legal advice may be required.
