What Is Conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring ownership of a property.
To complete the transfer of title, various steps must be completed.
This includes preparing, reviewing, and exchanging legal documents, conducting searches, and ensuring the transfer follows the applicable laws.
Our Ipswich Conveyancers are competent solicitors who can help you with all your conveyancing needs.
Conveyancing typically occurs in three stages:
- Pre-contract stage: During this stage, the contract for the sale or purchase of the property is prepared and negotiated.Conveyancers review contracts, conduct inquiries and searches, and negotiate contract amendments before signing them.The good news is that our Ipswich Conveyancers can negotiate your selling and buying needs.
2. Pre-settlement stage: The buyer’s conveyancer ensures that all conditions in the contract are met, including obtaining necessary approvals, finalizing financing, and conducting further searches.
The purchase price may be adjusted to account for council rates, water rates, and other property-related expenses at this stage.
As part of the conveyancing process, the conveyancers prepare the necessary documents to transfer the property title.
Our Ipswich Conveyancers ensure that everything is taken care of down to the last detail of the transfer.
3. Settlement stage: A settlement day involves the exchange of final documents and funds between the buyer and seller’s conveyancers.
Upon completing this process, the buyer officially takes possession of the property, and the seller receives the agreed-upon payment.
Once the documents are lodged with the Land Registry, the buyer’s conveyancer completes the transfer of ownership process.
Our Ipswich Conveyancers will see you through this stage until the end.
