What you might not know about a career in conveyancing

Choosing a new career can be a challenge. It is a big step to enter a new industry or even start the career that you have been training for, such as the conveyancing profession. With more and more people looking to get on the property ladder, the role of the conveyancer is as popular as it’s ever been, so it’s no wonder so many people are trying to become one!

What is conveyancing?

To briefly summarise, the process of conveyancing is when the legal transfer of property happens between both the buyer and seller. The process of conveyancing incudes all the legal and administrative work that is required to make sure that a house purchase is valid under law. You can find out more about the whole process here (link other blog).

What is the role of the conveyancer?

When a client is looking to sell a property, they will need to appoint a conveyancer on this process. The conveyancer ensures that this remains stress-free for the client during this detailed process, and that the transfer of property runs smoothly.

They will have the following roles in the selling of the property:

  • Act as the representative for the client during the selling of the property
  • Carry out research against the property
  • They will work with the client throughout the entire process
  • Help with paying costs (e.g., stamp duty and fees, liaising with the bank to transfer funds, transactions with the local council, and other disbursements)
