Buying a property can be extremely stressful.
It is often a huge decision and can feel like a long and complicated process.
Conveyancing is the legal transfer of a property from seller to buyer. It begins when an offer on a house is accepted and finishes when you have the key in your hand. There are a number of stages involved, and a lot of legal work that needs to be undertaken before completion This is why most people turn to experienced conveyancers to manage the process.
The key requirements you should have for a conveyancer are that they are accurate, efficient and committed. Accuracy ensures that everything is legally correct. Efficiency keeps the process running smoothly and saves unnecessary delays. Commitment is something that helps to facilitate both, so that the journey from buying to officially owning is a smooth one.
