Conveyancing Law


In terms of property law, conveyancing is the act of selling and buying real estate – both property and land. A conveyancer, therefore, is the specialist solicitor who assists you on the sale or purchase of this real estate. There are several aspects of conveyancing law which are vital to a transaction and which the conveyancer will be well-trained to do. This includes carrying out local-authority searches, land registry searches, dealing with stamp duty land tax and drafting contracts of sale.

Conveyancing law has an historical background, however there is no ‘Conveyancing Act’ anymore; instead, the Law of Property Act from 1925 contains the fullest details on conveyancing. Although this statute has made the transfer of land easier for the buyer since its inception, there are now newer rules on conveyancing law which have changed some of the 1925 Act. These rules are contained in the Land Registration Act 2002 and contain provisions on the likes of electronic conveyancing in an attempt to modernise property transactions.

Even though conveyancing law will continue to evolve to keep in line with the way in which we sell and buy property, conveyancers will always be obliged to keep up-to-date with these changes. Conveyancing law is a complex area but there are many local conveyancers or property solicitors who can help you on your sale or property purchase.
