What is Conveyancing?
The phrase Conveyancing is a general phrase that is used to define the required legal process involved in moving home. Each house purchase and sale is different, but generally a conveyancer will complete necessary tasks like:
- dealing with the Land Registry registration
- manage Stamp Duty payments
- managing money for the property sale
- providing legal advice and recommendations
- drawing up and assessing sale contracts
So the conveyancer acting for your sale or purchase is very important in the transaction process, and it’s important that you choose a trusted solicitor or conveyancer.
Leasehold Property Conveyancing Cowes
When buying or selling a leasehold house or flat it’s important that you use a good and skilled Licensed Conveyancer. With Leasehold property sales the conveyancing process is a little more complex than a freehold house. This makes the cost for the conveyancing for leasehold transactions, from Licensed Conveyancers, is a little more expensive. You have to pay a little more money as there is considerably more time consuming legal work involved. A leasehold conveyancing process can take more time.
