Conveyancing FAQs

What is conveyancing and why is it necessary?

Conveying refers to the legal process of buying and selling a property. Residential conveyancing simply refers to any time a house is bought or sold whereby the property is for living purposes. If the building is used to business or other uses then the process is know as commercial conveyancing.

All types of conveyancing involve a contractual title of the property from one owner to another and the process is completed by a conveyancer or property solicitor.

What is the process for buying or selling a house?

The typical steps in the conveyancing process include:

  • Instruction of a conveyancer
  • Pre-contract enquiries
  • Exchange of contracts
  • Completion
  • Post-completion formalities

For more information on each steps, read our guide to conveyancing.

How long will the legal work take on my transaction?

We will deal with your part of the sale and purchase within a few weeks (normally between 8 and 12), however if you’re in a chain or there are issues with the property which cause renegotiation then the process may be delayed. 

What is freehold and leasehold?

With freehold property you have exclusive possession until you sell or pass on the property.  With leasehold property, you have exclusive possession for a fixed period only and you pay rent to the ultimate owner. 

You may also have to pay annual fees to a management company. Usually property is leasehold because the owners need to share costs e.g. for maintenance or insurance on a flat.

What is the role of a conveyancer/solicitor?

A conveyancer or solicitor is the person who is responsible for dealing with the legal aspects of any property transaction. 

This will include tasks such as reviewing the contracts, conducting searches, dealing with mortgage lenders and handling the transfer of funds. 

What's the difference between exchange and completion?

Exchange refers to the process of contracts being exchanged between the two parties solicitors, after this point neither party are able to withdraw from the transaction as it is now legally binding. 

Completion is when they buyer becomes the legal owner of the property , on this day the purchase price is paid and the keys are handed over. Exchange and completion can happen on the same day if parties have made arrangements like moving out. 

What is a trust and when would I need one?

A trust is when there is more than one owner or investor in a property. If, for example, more than one person invests in a property, then you may have a trust set up showing who paid and what the shares are. 

You may need a trust if a person is under 18 or if you want one person to have a right to live in a house for their life but then the house goes to someone else when they die.

What is a chain?

Where more than one property is being bought and sold at the same time. For example, if you are buying a house but the person you’re buying it from is waiting for the house they’re moving into to be sold, then this would be considered a chain. 

These can cause delays in your move in date as despite you being ready to move, you’re waiting for a property further in the chain to sell so your seller can vacate the property.
