The Importance Of Conveyancing When Selling A House

During the process of selling a house, conveyancing is a crucial aspect. Conveyancing refers to the legal transfer of property ownership from one party to another, which involves various tasks such as preparing contracts, researching title issues, and handling financial transactions.

The conveyancer hired by the seller is responsible for preparing the necessary contracts and conducting various property checks. These checks involve confirming the seller’s title to the property and ensuring that all legal obligations are fulfilled. Additionally, the conveyancer is responsible for managing any discussions with the buyer’s solicitor or representative.

The conveyancer representing the seller will inform them of their legal obligations and provide advice on relevant matters such as tax liabilities, capital gains tax, and property transfer registration with HM Land Registry.

After conducting all necessary checks and exchanging contracts, completion occurs, allowing the new owner to take possession of the property. The seller’s conveyancer oversees the transfer of funds, confirms the buyer’s eligibility for ownership, and ensures all tax obligations are met. It is important for the conveyancer to fulfill their duties promptly to avoid any delays or interruptions in the sale process.
