What is Property Conveyancing?

Property conveyancing is the legal transfer of property ownership from one person to another using a licensed conveyancing solicitor or conveyancer. It involves extensive legal and administrative work to facilitate the sale or purchase of a home.

Conveyancers guide buyers and sellers through all stages of property transactions. Digital tools are now enhancing this process.


Stages of the Conveyancing Process

The key stages of a standard conveyancing transaction include:

Offer Accepted – The seller accepts the buyer’s offer on the property. Conveyancers can be instructed.

Searches – The buyer’s conveyancer orders searches related to the property.

Contracts Prepared – The contract for sale is drafted stating the agreed terms.

Contracts Exchanged – Contracts are signed by the buyer and seller and legally exchanged.

Completion – The buyer transfers funds to complete purchase. Keys are received.

Registration – The conveyancer registers the buyer as the new legal owner.

Digital conveyancing innovations focus on improving workflow and communication at each stage.

Additionally, modern software not only automates routine tasks but also minimises human error, enhancing process accuracy.

The digitalisation of property records and the use of blockchain technology have, all of a sudden, made transactions more secure and traceable.

Afterward, real-time updates and seamless communication between all parties ensure everyone is updated accordingly. Both buyers and sellers now enjoy a smoother, less stressful experience thanks to these technological advancements.
