What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing refers to the legal work involved in buying or selling a home, land or other property. This includes the contract, and any preparation that goes into related documents – like a mortgage.

Can I do my own conveyancing?

Buying or selling property will be some of the more significant transactions you will make in your life. While significant and exciting, buying or selling can be stressful and mistakes costly. Our property law team are experts in their field and will work with you to ensure your interests are protected throughout the conveyancing process.

While it’s possible to do your own conveyancing, where the stakes are high the risk is too. Our lawyers will identify issues that may be relevant to you in your sale, purchase or lease and will advise you of ways to protect your interests before you enter into a legally enforceable document. If you want more comprehensive advice and a more thorough understanding of property law we recommend seeking legal advice from a qualified lawyer.

If you’re worried about the cost of this, don’t be. We offer fixed rate conveyancing fees and an obligation-free quote so you can have the confidence about the level of service you’ll receive without worrying about it breaking the bank.
