Conveyancing Act


A conveyancer is a person who specialises in the law relating to buying and selling properties. Therefore, conveyancing is the act of property transfers itself. Conveyancers could be solicitors of general practice or licensed conveyancers, which means they have passed certain exams and undergone specific training in order to specialise in conveyancing.

The last piece of legislation about this field of law, called the Conveyancing Act, came into force in the late nineteenth century and has since been repealed mostly by the Law of Property Act of 1925. This is essentially a conveyancing Act which sets out most of the law used in property transactions today.

Nevertheless, some parts of the Law of Property Act are now a bit old fashioned as changes such as the compulsory registration of properties that occurred in 1998 were, of course, not accounted for in 1925. The Land Registration Act of 2002 is also changing the way conveyancing occurs in the UK, introducing such modern measures as e-conveyancing.

A new conveyancing Act may come into place to consolidate the current law, but there are often new developments in how property in handled. Specialist conveyancers are, therefore, necessary as they keep up-to-date with all the changes to ensure you do not get caught out by the law when buying or selling property.
