Conveyancing is a word used to describe the legal work involved in the buying and selling and gift of land (houses, flats and farms).
Members of the public are well advised to employ a legal professional to draw up the legal documents and part of a solicitor's responsibility is to investigate title for land and check for discrepancies and problems that maybe of disadvantage to either the buyer or seller. Solicitors normally hold the money for the purchase in their client bank account and ensure that it is appropriately transferred to the seller. The transfer of title is then registered at the Land Registry.
Solicitors have to maintain professional indemnity insurance so clients will be compensated if they make a mistake and have to conform to professional standards and rules and are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
It is the UK government's aim for all land in England and Wales to be registered at the Land Registry. Our solicitors are familiar with registered and unregistered titles and will undertake first registrations of title to land and will advise on auction contracts.

We aim to work and co-operate where possible with all the local estate agents to provide a first rate service to existing clients and for people looking to move here for the first time.
