Do I Need a Conveyancing Solicitor To Buy or Sell Property?

Just about all of us have a pretty good understanding of the roles real estate agents play in the process of exchanging properties from seller to buyer. The job of the agent is fairly obvious in many respects because they are working on the front line and very visible, but when it comes to property conveyancing, the role the conveyance lawyer plays is not as apparent.

Just because the process of conveyancing is not as visible as that of a real estate agent, that doesn’t mean it’s any less important.

Buying or selling a property is a major decision and one of the most crucial elements is the financial transaction. Many people go to great lengths to find an agent they like to deal with, and the same should apply to the conveyancing solicitor you choose.

Once the decision has been made for a property to exchange hands at the agreed-upon price, then the legalities come into play, and this is where things could get really complicated if buyers/sellers try to take on the task themselves.

Professionals who practice and specialize in conveyancing law know the process inside out, which will save you a lot of time and headaches. Most people just want to get the transaction done, not work out how to do it. In effect, a conveyancer transfers the ownership of a property from one person to another. Although it may sound simple in theory, there is more to it than simply changing the name on a document and transferring funds to those due.

Think of a conveyancing solicitor as a specialist. When you visit a GP, they know a bit about everything in the medical profession, but when a specific diagnosis or treatment is required, the GP will send you to a specialist in that field.

It’s the same when practicing property law. There are law firms that cover a whole spectrum of legal tasks, but when it comes to property law or real estate law, to make the process of buying and selling much faster, smoother and hassle-free, it’s best to seek out a specialist conveyancing solicitor.
