Online conveyancing works exactly the same as the traditional conveyancing process but is all online. It helps you with the legal aspects and paperwork that comes with buying and selling a house.

What happens during the conveyance?
The general process for a conveyance is when you transfer a property from one individual to another. It is the responsibility of your solicitor to ensure that the seller has a valid title that can be passed to the purchaser on payment of contract price and manages the process of this transfer. It is vital that this process carried out correctly to ensure that the purchaser is confident of having a right of ownership that cannot be challenged in the future.

How much does it Cost?

The outlays are for property searches conducted on the property as part of the conveyancing process. These costs will vary depending on the local council and number of property searches that you would like to conduct. We will provide you with a full list of searches and estimated costs to assist you in deciding which searches are right for you.
