Here, we have answered some of the most frequently asked questions from our customers:
What is conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the legal term for the transference of legal title of a property from one person to another. It is the role of the conveyancer to oversee the process from start to finish, assisting with both legal and administrative elements along the way. Whether the property is residential or commercial, the process must be carried out correctly to ensure an accurate exchange of legal title.
Can it be done online?
Often, home buyers and sellers in the UK think their only option when it comes to conveyancing is to go to their local solicitor. But this is simply not the case! Online services in the United Kingdom have grown massively in recent years. By using technology to facilitate an expert conveyancing solution, you can achieve the same high level, secure service in less time and for less money.
How do online conveyancing services work?
In essence, online conveyancing works in the exact same way as its traditional counterpart. Instead of meeting in person with your conveyancer, the process can be carried out online, via telephone and through the post. Online services can achieve quicker turnarounds and cheaper price points, with the added benefit of being able to monitor the progress of a transaction.
What is the difference between a conveyancer and a solicitor?
A conveyancer is a licensed professional that specifically handles title transfers. They are specialists in property without being a fully qualified lawyer. A solicitor is a legally qualified lawyer that can offer a range of legal services. Both are lawfully able to facilitate the conveyancing for your property.
Why choose a conveyancer?
A conveyancer is licensed to conduct official, legal work to ensure a smooth transference of legal title for your property. As they specialise in property, conveyancers are experts in their field whereas a solicitor could carry out a variety of legal work for their clients. As conveyancers are not fully qualified lawyers, their rates tend to be cheaper than solicitors.
