Conveyancing is the process of transferring ownership of immovable property from one person to another * . Conveyancing is an umbrella term to describe all property transactions whether voluntary transfers between family members or purchases or sales of buildings, both commercial and residential or land.
The title system is the same regardless of the type of land being conveyed. However, the type of the property will affect the documents and inquiries to be made by the conveyancing solicitor . For example, further inquiries and documents are required for a pub, which would not be required for a house.
A conveyancer may only act for one side of a transaction (with very limited exceptions).
