Conveyancing Legal Advice

Buy­ing or sell­ing a prop­er­ty — whether com­mer­cial or res­i­den­tial — can be stress­ful. The Con­veyanc­ing process can seem like a legal mine­field, but thank­ful­ly advice and pro­fes­sion­al help is read­i­ly available.

Both res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial Con­veyanc­ing have large finan­cial impacts as costs can be incurred per­son­al­ly or by a busi­ness, so talk­ing to Con­veyanc­ing advi­sors to make sure con­tracts are tight and you are as safe as pos­si­ble is crucial.

A buy­er of real prop­er­ty must ensure that he or she obtains a good and mar­ketable title’ to the land; i.e., that the sell­er is the own­er, has the right to sell the prop­er­ty, and there is noth­ing which would impede a mort­gage or re-sale. If you are buy­ing a prop­er­ty for com­mer­cial pur­pos­es or to act as a Land­lord, this rais­es oblig­a­tions on your behalf and you need to work out exact­ly what you will be liable for — this is where pro­fes­sion­al Con­veyanc­ing advice is real­ly needed.

Spe­cial­ist areas of Con­veyanc­ing include draft­ing and nego­ti­at­ing new Leas­es; buy­ing, sell­ing or remort­gag­ing busi­ness premis­es; Spe­cial­ist Indus­tri­al Units advice and land acqui­si­tion for devel­op­ment, and for these types of con­tracts seek­ing Con­veyanc­ing legal advice is almost cer­tain­ly a necessity.
