In law, Conveyancing is the transfer of legal title of property from one person to another, or the granting of an encumbrance such as a mortgage. A typical Conveyancing transaction contains two major landmarks: the Exchange of Contracts (whereby equitable title passes) and Completion (whereby legal title passes). Conveyancing occurs in three stages: before contract, before completion and after completion.
A buyer of a 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.
